It's a joke. Don't bother. Should be out of buisness in a few months. They got Jacob Parker from Hancock County Today...another joke.

Dear Mr. Easttndad,
Not sure who you are but unless you know Jacob
Parker(my brother) personally the I suggest you watch the slander. Jacob Parker is a very well respected Pastor and businessman. Our paper is not an joke. WE WILL NOT BE OUT OF BUSINESS IN A FEW MONTHS. Were did you get your info are you from the Hancock Co Today trying to cause trouble. We have not ever slandered Hancock County today or any of their people. We expect the same respect. I can't understand why people can't let a good thing happen. It says you are from Morristown, Why do you care anyway?

I know what an ISP address is but thanks for letting me know you are watching me. Kind of creepy, but thanks. I haven't threatened anyone...but your remarks are. I said in my earlier post the Hancock County Today was a joke, not Jacob. And yes I am a Dad. I posted a response to someone's question. You must not understand how topix works. I guess if anyone has an opionion you don't agree with we should call you so you can explain?

It happened again Friday, September 19, 2008. As long as you can keep blaming the "clerk" you can pretend you are not causing a problem. This will be my last post...I will tell the owner that the carrier is going to seek legal action if this happens again.

Sister & Ron Parker-

What Easttndad wrote is hardly slander. If he had said "I heard INSERT NAME is working there and he is thief (rapist, pedophile, con artist & etc) would have slander, maybe. If your son is a public figure, either by election, appointment or community leader, then he's open game. As the owner/publisher of the paper you are open to such abuse also.

The only to go is rise up above it all and turn out a quality product and prove everyone wrong. Living a righteous life is the best revenge.

As far as "ISP address", don't you mean I.P. Address http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_address ? Getting the IP Address from Topix would be a violation of their privacy policy http://www.topix.com/topix/terms/#privacy_pol... , which would mean you have obtained it outside of Topix knowledge or that you are a little less than honest about you knowing Easttndad's 'ISP Address'. Neither of those look good for a newspaper trying to build credibility.

I'd be mad as hell if someone said that about my son, but lowering yourself to avenge a statement is going to make you old man of fast.

As a reader and an advertiser with your paper, I can do without all the national politics in the paper. I can get that from a plenty of papers. I want more local news, sports and civic club happenings in White Pine. I don't want Washington D.C., New York, Morristown or Newport - I WANT WHITE PINE IN MY WHITE PINE PAPER. If you can't do that, I can spend my ad dollars with the Standard Banner.

Well Ron, you are my friend and I love the paper :). Cya soon ! And for those of you who think the paper isn't worth you time to read it then it is your right as an American to not READ it or any other media! As for where they are or are not placed, you have no clue where they were placed, unless you in fact were standing there at the very moment that it occurred. So unless you were, then maybe you should mind your own business. And I agree with Ron, do not speak disrespectful of anyones child, unless you in fact would not mind if someone spoke badly of yours !

Ronnie,
Being an old friend, I feel the need to give you some advice. I stumbled on to this site and was surprized to see you going tit 4 tat with this person. I know you are smarter than that.
You shoud just ignor him. Fussing back and forth like that is what lends him the attention he is craving.
Old Friend
Oh good luck with the paper,you might just have something there!

Mr. Easttndad,
Obviously you don't know what an isp address is. Your PC is the only one that has your particular address. I know who you are. Will you please call me. I doubt if you have the guts. If you were actually an East Tennessee Dad, then you would know not to speak badly of a man's son. We need to talk, so I can one more time, try to explain a couple of things. If you won't call me, I'll call you, or better yet, I'll come see you.
Ron Parker (a real easttndad)

Most small towns are too dug into their little worlds to even attempt to embrace change. They love their tiny town biased printing newspapers. I suggest starting an alternative online newspaper. I know of this concept going toe to toe with the ONLY one sided, over priced advertising circular in Rhea County and it was such a success that the site was credited for the abrupt resignation of the editor and the publisher. Then somehow it was shut down. I know some of the people who worked hard on articles and it was a shame to see it shut down illegally. I truly believe that small towns are great but they are so set in their ways they will use police and other acts to stiffle public opinion, especially when that opinion is truth that those select few do not want told. Just my opinion.
