I have no idea but I quit reading that crap years ago. They didn't label their photos and it was nothing but a campaign rag for the Ruppees and the Kilbys. And I got so tired about reading Pollard's rock pile and the chili cookoff. Let's hope so. Well, got to give them credit they had decent sports but that alone doesn't cut the mustard with morGan Countians.

In the coming weeks, you should begin to see some differences. In fact you should have already noticed some additions to the paper, such as: property transfers from the register of deeds, incident reports from the sheriff's office and marriages from the county clerk's office. All of that information is part of the public record and I appreciate the office holders working with us so that we can make it available to our readers.

We are in the process of coming up with a way to add the courts to our already growing public record. Currently I cover the "big" trials and some of the rest falls to the wayside. Some of you have told me you would like to know how even the smaller cases are resolved and I am committed to making that happen, hopefully in the very near future.

I'm proud of this website. I enjoy the opportunity it provides for us to bring you the news in a slightly different way. I'm attempting to put the full county commission meeting up in video and with some tweaking over the last couple of months I finally succeeded in November. Since our county government meets on Monday nights and the new content goes up on Wednesdays, the video from those meetings may not make it until Thursday or even Friday. I'm still learning the bells and whistles of iMovie and I will get it down. Unfortunately, I can't control the room or how loud or softly the commissioners may speak or if they are hidden behind someone or something so it may not always be the best quality but hits on the video are already showing that you want to view it.

For now I haven't attempted to put school board meetings up. The sound has not been good on the video I've made so far, but again I will work on that in the coming weeks.

If you have ideas you would like to share, I am open to your suggestions. Give me a call or drop me an email.

And ... thank you for reading whether it's in print or online.....Judy Byrge

Maybe if it rhymed with rock and started with a C, you would know. Since that is what you suck in you're spare time. Yes people read other posts and if you want to be considered a true contributer to important topics you should make an effort not to use the name Snarky when asking for sexual favors online. You are no better than the people who post juvenile comments and talk about people. Good thing you don't work at the news, I could only image the classifieds.

I found out the truth. Judy Byrge is resigning and going into another field of work. But the MC News will stay.....It has to be a vast improvement.

Do they have a new editor yet? Do you think it would be better if the new editor was from the county with local knowledge or new to the area to give a different perspective?

I suppose you fail to see the irony in this statement:

I agree but sometimes you have to get on an idiot's level to get a point across. I have moved on from these posts let's get back to the topic. I think the paper needs a new perspective.

My mistake, it is Quinton Henry's rockpile not Pollards. It wouldn't be difficult to find an editor who would be better than Judy Byrge. Most high school students could beat her.

Somebody had a big bowl of piss with their Cheerios this morning.

So you don't know whatever became of the rock pile then?

The biggest improvement would be to stop Don (Do nothing) Edwards from using free press to bash other people,
From now on I think we will hear the other side, or as Paul Harvey would say the rest of the story.

One thing different, Ruppe and Kilby were doing something possitive, Like getting Grants, for water lines, sheriff's dept, vol fire depts, walking tracks, grants for street lights, and many others, all of which were helpful to the county, Not one time do i remember either one using the paper to bash other people. So Yes there were reasons to report what was being done. A huge difference, Now lets hear what this do nothing pc of shi- has done in the past 2yrs. You ask for this so now you have it.

Hey man. Idk if you've ever read Shakespeare, Im kind of getting the feeling that you didn't. But he coined a phrase its "The Lady doth protest to much." It means when some one says no to much, or derides some thing to much its because they are trying to distance them selves from some thing they actually want.

Now I'm not saying your gay or in any way interested in oral sex with men, but I will say that some recent studies would suggest that. Not that there's any thing wrong with that of course. But if maybe you did go out and do it you'd get rid of some of that pent up anger and you'd be a nicer person.

The morgan county news should sell good this week, Old Don got his britches taned, Did he ever, Brad Jones set him stright, he called him out for the way he has been bashing other folks,

Look out Brad, Edwards will be calling your boss,and will try to get you fired, I'll bet he can't He is King of morgan county (In his mind) No one should disagree with King Don, He attempted to get a US postal employee fired, and Judy Byrge ar the paper, that i don't understand since she let himhave his way in every paper for 2yrs, But Edwards thinks he controls everything in the county, Mr Edwards found out this wk there is one that won't stand back and take his sh--. Thanks Brad
