Mtn. Voice - Yep, it is I.
I would like to thank you for the following statement on another thread...

Mtn Voice said, "Now again, assuming you are indeed "THE" Norm Cooper, that being the former editor of the North Georgia News who was publicly disgraced and fired - well, I do congratulate you on any awards you may have won / earned - sincerely. I also think that you were an incredibly hard worker, and putting together that paper week after week for so many years was a sincere accomplishment. I mean all of that with complete sincerity, and you have earned the right to be proud of those facts."

Thank you.

You'd be interested to learn that Mr. West had the Georgia Press Association take off my name of the list when the official list of winners was released. That was just unprofessional and tacky.
He has still refused to let me have the awards I won and paid the contest entry fees for.

Yes, I was fired, and one would assume that it would be a disgrace to be fired. But, since you do not live or work in the county, you really had no way of knowing what happened the days following.

The website www.unioncountytimes.blogspot.com tells about it. So far, more than 3,000 have viewed it.

It was AWESOME to have more than 200 people in Union County either call me, email me or see me in person to offer their support to me within 72 hours after it happened. And many others have done so since that 3-day period. Yes, I believe someone was disgraced by that action, but from I stand, it was NOT NormC.

People like you that is why you had a lot of support.
Many people didn't know you were fired.
I felt free to tell them it was because West caved to several people on TOPIX. No one felt the firing was justified.

200 people with a readership of 8000 means just .025% of your readers supported you. That's one fourth of one percent. Hardly the strong showing of support you're making it out to be.

Half the county wanted to hold a parade celebrating it but the mayor said it would be too hard to close the roads with so short a notice.

I heard we're going to dance and sing "Thank you very much" in the Christmas Parade this year to Mr West for finally taking steps to fix his biggest source of complaints.

I think over 200 supporters is remarkable. Only 3 or 4 idiots on topix agreed with the decision, which shows Mr. West did not have much support. I seen it must be one of the new employees.

People don't even know he is gone.
That's how much attention the paper gets.

The paper seems to be doing quite well without Cooper. It wold seem to be a decision that should have been made long ago. Why don't get a job Norm and quit living off the taxpayer.
