No cuts for commissioner salaries
After months of wrangling about a possible reduction in the salary that Loudon County commissioners pay themselves, the board on Tuesday again dispatched the issue when a motion for a decrease died without a second assenting voice.

This story is false and misleading. The news herald reporter did not even attend the commission meeting. The commission voted 7 to 2 not to cut pay by 50%.
The motion did not die because of a lack of a second as reported in this story. The News herald is giving the commissioners a pass on their vote and deliberately distributing false information.

Not only giving some a pass, but not giving credit to the two who made and seconded the motion.
I assume these were the two yes votes.
I appreciate the example they set. It's not surprising more didn't follow their example; but it is a sad indication of where many of our "public servants' " priorities lie.

Another ghost-written story in the News-Herald.

The News Herald publisher has been notified about this mistake. The publisher refused to take any action or to even verify that a mistake was made.
This is disgraceful journalism. It's bad enough that they didn't send a reporter to an important meeting. Then it's bad that the reporter got the story wrong. Finally, when notified of the mistake they take no action?

That is why their nickname is the "No-News Herald"!!
