Donna was the Stanley's Board President during their downward financial spiral. Sounds very similar to the OD's downward financial spiral. Do you think there may be a common denominator there?
She is pretty good at blaming problems on other people and firing employees. She has very little common sense or business sense. It is amazing that the OD and the Stanley are both still open after her involvement in both of them.
Truth.

Great! Maybe the OD will stop getting thinner and thinner with someone else. I want to cancel it but the old lady won't. She just wants to read the OBIT's. Waste of money in my opinion.

The OD is a disgrace and performs zero investigative journalism. Perhaps someone with courage will take over.

Donovan & the od were experts at preaching to the public. Such as job creation. How many people did DD put of work when she moved printing operations & customer service reps out of town? Hmm?
She knew that the ship was sinking so they could not justify putting money into upgrading their printing press. Donna has run the OD into an iceberg. Unfortunately, it is just a matter of time before it sinks.

poor reporter

Let us not forget the poor reporting she did with that Bradley Golden murder, the Westmoreland firefighter who died at the hands of those he entrusted doing his job. As a good reporter would have done was pound the beat about this story, it was murder. Allen Baird should have done hard time for he was involved in that fire. They criminally and with grave intent did not investigate the structure for safety prior to lighting that fire with live victims. This was intent, not an accident. That house should have been secured and checked to be sure there were no kids high school or college level bombed from a binge drinking/drug party. Just think, kids could've been in that house when Baird lite that fire. Did they check, no!

Now, let's look at how interesting it was that Baird hire Robert Moran and Judge Dwyer didn't remove him as Baird's attorney when he was arrested for drug distribution. This one could speculate aid in Baird appeal if that road was taken of poor legal representation. Moran should have been recused from that case once he was arrested.

Let's ask it may have been murder it may have been a coup to dis-ban that fire department! Why did the sheriffs NOT secure that fire structure until around 10 am the next morning? One could easily speculate they were removing material that would indict a conspiracy charge. Joe Lisi is the husband of Laurie Lisi, DA pals of Mike Arcuri and Dan Middaugh was the elected sheriff and failed in his duties as like Robert Maciol has failed in his duties as sheriff in regards to that Knoxboro shooting.

Now, look who now owns the fire house, Norm Deep the man who is allegedly blind, has handicapped plates yet can drive at night and has been seen driving his car at night! How does a blind man drive at night should his license have limitations on his driving at night since he states he is legally blind? The same lawyer who represented Garramone's son the child molester? Yes!

Donna Donovan this is a story that shows you helped cover up a murder by not investigating thoroughly this case. Each is a culprit in this man's death right to Baird and his attorney who should have been removed once he was arrested for drug distribution!

It would be nice is they could turn the OD around now that Donna is leaving. Or sell it to a company that could. Unfortunately, I do not think it is going to happen.

How come Donna Donnovan and the Observer Dispatch failed to report that under Bob Nole New Hartford's national Ranking has dropped from 129 to 1023? Every year the OD would gleefully report how NH was nationally ranked at 129 but now they are silent.

Could it be because only ONE school in all of Central NY made the top 500 nationally: Fayetteville-Manlius. New Hartford, which ranked at one time 129 has now dropped to 1023 under Bob "$200,000 a year" Nole.

Here is the story in the Syracuse Post Stand dated April 23, 2014:
