There is so much information to be read by weekly publishings of the Chronicle. However, there are daily, hourly or even by the minute postings here on Topix. Which one these gossip collums do you think has the most accurate information? Please comment...

Hmm. Topix isn't 100% true. But the Chronicle doesn't even have relevant issues. It's all trash propaganda for those in town that think they are awesome. Puke!

Tough choice! ;)

At least if the Chronicle has a misprint it does correct it. If the same is done on topix, there is rarely an apology, but more like the public takes it and runs with it, adding to and subtracting from their supposed information. Even if someone makes a decent comment, by the end of the conversation some troublemaker has trashed it and made the decent person look bad. People can't even have normal discussions on here without someone arguing and getting irate. The Chronicle would definitely be the best bet by far.

I buy the Chronicle for one purpose. I buy the Chronicle to read the CHRIST CENTERED MESSAGE.

If the columnist that writes that message had an online message I would read it on line.

I assume he could start a new topic on here for his article, but I am sure some people on here would only attack his ministry.

The Chronicle is a joke. It's become nothing more than an ads publication w/ a few old news stories, or features that focus on the Sville elite. To the editors, it's all about selling ad space and making as much money as possible. They don't see that the quality of the end product; is basically a glorified piece of crap. Mr. Yeager was the best editor the paper ever had. I buy it to read the obits and police reports.

Love the Topix great to read the trash talking. If a person complains about someone talking trash on them they must be trash. Got to love white men they will sell each other for a dollar family or not. Especially you dum West virginia grade school educated rednecks.

Believe you just called yourself trash, cause you're doing some trash talking on here just like other ones do, by calling people trash that are on here, topix (and just where are you?), talking about white men and rednecks? Looks like you need to think before you type because I do believe you just incriminated yourself! LOL!

Yes, they might attack his ministry so just leave it in the paper where they can just ignore it and turn the page.

Lol, you will never see that in the Chronicle! The Chronicle IS A JOKE!!! With topix, you can hear more than just one side of the story and more details. This is why topix is so popular in our county. I'm sure that with every topic there may be some comments or even lies that readers do not agree with, but at least on here, you are able to voice your opinion as oppose to the Chronicle, which only prints what "the editors" would like for you to read.

You've got that right about the Chronicle...They only publish the news they think we need to know, while stories of break-ins are covered up, as that would reflect badly on the city officals, or the chamber of commerce, etc. Basically they publish propaganda pablum for the masses...and since they are they only paper in the county, there is a huge void regarding reliable local news. That's probably the main reason Topix has a following, not to mention all the trash talk and gossip.

Anyone saw that new paper called "BUSTED" yet? It covers Nicholas County and is funny as it can be. I found them at Johnson's gun shop in the big lots mall next to mattress mart, but aren't sure where else they're sold

The Nicholas Chronicle wants to sell newspapers. Anyone can publish an ad in it for the right amount of money. Good news and bad news sells. For instance the Magistrates Office publishes court cases and the Sheriff's Department publishes drug bust information, etc... to try and gain the uneducated(lack of knowledge of the criminal justice system) publics confidence so they, to include, prosecutors can get more votes to be re-elected. WHY DON'T THEY PUBLISH THE DISPOSITIONS OF ALL THESE CASES? They only want you to know one side of the story. Just because these cases are published in the paper doesn't mean these folks are guilty. Innocent until proven guilty, right? Maybe that is why people are exonerrated from death row, prison, and why charges are dismissed and or why law enforcement officers do not show up to court dates. If a prosecuting attorney cannot coerce you or your attorney into making a deal or waiving your constitutional rights by pleading nolo contendre or no contest, why not recommend the law enforcement officer to not show up and the case will be dismissed. It is like a big poker game and they wont fold until they make a deal with your attorney or until the court date when the cop fails to show up. Do you think that RPOSECUTING ATTORNEYS have something to do with the cops not showing up to court? No one wants to be charged, sued or disbarred for a false arrest or conviction. Topix is free and you can get both sides of the story. There is always two sides to every story. Just because someone tells their story on this free site doesn't mean that it isn't true. Think outside the box and open your minds folks. God Bless America. Divided We Fall

It doesnt mean it is true either. Topix has zero accountability. Anyone can get on topix and say anything they want...true or not.

Yes. Plenty of lies. and the "sides" of the story may be totally incorrect. People have many agendas on topix.

I'm sure by now, most have heard about the tragic accident that happened at Tractor Bar last night. Let's wait and see what the Chronicle has to print. Then review the comments that have been posted on several other threads in regards to this story... I wonder if Steve Brown makes the front page of the Chronicle??? Doubtful...

I do NOT agree with the stand the Chronicle takes on many things, but topix is gossip, and the Chronicle is not. There is a difference.
