Official County Newspaper
« on: February 12, 2014, 11:13:32 AM »
I read in the newspaper today about a disgruntled Elk County resident who was unhappy with the editor of the local newspaper. Apparently he tried to get the commissioners to appoint a newspaper in another county as the official county newspaper. The move failed, though.

someone posted a link to the recorded voices at a county meeting where Rudy had texted some rude stuff about some people in our county and 1 of the commissioners made a motion to have Independence paper do our legal notices.Its a interesting recording just go to the home page and i'm sure you can find it.

      And it was a commissioner that discovered the disrespectful comments made and put forth a motion to change papers. To report that a resident tried to sway the commission is inaccurate. Not surprising from Mr. Taylor.

Please remember, Mr. Gray, that Mr. Taylor has a vested financial interest in saving his skin as the official legal publication for Elk County.  It stands to reason, therefore, that if his personal agendas are threatened (notwithstanding his liberal political agendas) he might skew the facts just a tad.  After all, that's what Progressive Fabian Socialist media members do... from NBC/CBS/ABC right down to the local level.  The era of widespread factual reporting is long gone.  Rather, they tend to blow off the facts and instead insult their reader's/viewer's intelligence by subverting the truth with a lie.... all the while forgetting that it was their own back channel disrespectful chatter about their potential customers that caused the problem in the first place.

I opine there is also his paper's admitted (in writing to the County Clerk) editing or truncation of official county records (meeting minutes, etc.) prior to publication.  And for this the county pays?

If memory serves, other communities, long ago, realized that Taylor's publication had agendas and also took steps to stop pouring taxpayer dollars into his pockets. 

Perhaps Commissioner Ritz has honest, transparent use of tax monies in mind. 

Ultimately, since Taylor's paper was not represented officially at the commission meeting in question, I would wonder just which 'unhappy resident(s)' are feeding Taylor his "news".  All the more reason to dump the current paper as a legal pub and seek one with less local personal interest to receive tax dollars for their legal publication services.

Rudy does so much for this community. You really think Independence cares anything about what goes on over here? The only reason the Independence paper would want to publish our notifications is for their financial gain.  Rudy truly loves this area as you can clearly see when you read his paper. He promotes our businesses, our fundraisers, our activities, our schools, our sporting events, etc. All you that want smaller government- you really want a government that goes through our emails and tells us what we can and can't say. I don't.

Are you in business for financial gain or are you in business as a community service?

In Taylor's email to Jennifer Montgomery last year, he referred to residents of Elk County as 'unsociable idiots' and 'boobs' while reminding her that his paper had a financial interest here. Seems his dollar interests are no different than those of any other publication.

All you that want smaller government- you really want a government that goes through our emails and tells us what we can and can't say. I don't.

No, methinks you confuse that with those who want a government that holds to the limits placed on it by the Constitution and one that chooses wisely where to spend taxpayer monies within that framework.

As for emails, a government that goes through records it owns is something quite different.  The record in question was stored on taxpayer funded, county owned service/equipment.  Perhaps you should review the state and federal laws regarding the lack of privacy of such things... and the Supreme Court decisions that support the right of employers to access such records.  Those emails are property, by extension, of the taxpayers.

Taylor can, and should, continue to support the communities where his paper is published.  Rewarding him with taxpayer monies is another matter entirely.  The issues surrounding his paper's support and promotion of socialist agendas (read Elk Konnected/Public Squares/UN Agenda 21) are something his customer can choose to reward, or not, by continuing to pay for his papers out of their individual funds.

Red, that is so typical of you. >:( Immediately attack the person who posts. That question is really rude and out of line with the debate. She does so much for the community  residents above and beyond keeping her business afloat. I'm sure you don't shop there anyway, so what's it to you? CCTP!

CCTP indeed. 

Would that be the Los Angeles Common Core Technology Project (http://lausd.schoolwires.net/cctp) or the U.S. Climate Change Technology Program (http://www.climatetechnology.gov/) or the CMS Community-based Care Transitions Program (http://innovation.cms.gov/initiatives/CCTP/)?  Or all three.  ???
