When Ransdall said he was extremely disappointed that the Eastern District had spent $194,605 in funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and was only half-finished with the projects, Farnham heatedly defended the efforts of himself and his road crews.

After calling loudly for Eastern District Road Foreman Stan Crismon to come into the meeting room, Farnham told Ransdall, I don't care if you're disappointed or not. You've been picking on the Eastern District for the past two weeks now.

Interesting when compared to the Daily Guide article.  One wouldn't have known the meeting was quite so "heated".  I do now........... 

Nothing against the Daily Guide.  I realize the new reporters are exercising a little more restraint as most would in a new job.

What's even worse other departments had surplusses, seems they didn't even need to try and cut expenses.

These "professionals" are only good at two things.  Taking care of their friends in the courthouse and screwing the PCSD.  Not necessarily in that order.  I have seen no indication of moving money around to fit the actual NEEDS of the offices.  The only mandate seems to be to reduce efficiency and manpower in the LE area.  Anybody see it differently?  All in the name of money of course.  Nice cover gentlemen.  With the new commissioner siding with Ransdall, we have a real problem in the county.  I smell conspiracy and I don't like it at all.

It's always best to go to the source to learn what people believe. Here is an opinion piece by DawnDee Bostwick, the new editor of the Daily Guide, outlining her views:
 http://www.waynesvilledailyguide.com/opinions/x131783314/From-the-editor   
I have strong opinions on this, but I'll keep them to myself -- for now.
 
What I will say is that freedom of the press belongs to those who own a press, and I strongly affirm that she and her publisher have every right to run a "feel-good" publication if that's what they think readers want. Obviously I have very different views, but the fact is that I never discussed any of this with Floyd Jernigan, the Rolla Daily News publisher who has also supervised the Waynesville Daily Guide since shortly after Joel Goodridge was fired in August. I left entirely on my own and without any awareness that this is the direction the Daily Guide would be going, so let's not read too much into a single opinion piece from a brand-new editor.

I got it: Darrell can continue to give us the real news, while those who get tired of the real world in all its blazing glory can retreat to the DG for a little reassurance that "Good things happen in Pulaski County!" (Or is that just Waynesville and St. Robert?)

I knew what would happen here when I alerted people to the new Daily Guide editor's introduction editorial piece. Since I also know that this will get copied and pasted, let's just remember that I stand behind the very brief comments I made about that opinion piece, which are copied below, but I don't want to be held accountable for what other people here say, even if they like my work.
 
It's always best to go to the source to learn what people believe ... [hotlink to the article] ... I have strong opinions on this, but I'll keep them to myself -- for now. What I will say is that freedom of the press belongs to those who own a press, and I strongly affirm that she and her publisher have every right to run a "feel-good" publication if that's what they think readers want. Obviously I have very different views, but the fact is that I never discussed any of this with Floyd Jernigan, the Rolla Daily News publisher who has also supervised the Waynesville Daily Guide since shortly after Joel Goodridge was fired in August. I left entirely on my own and without any awareness that this is the direction the Daily Guide would be going, so let's not read too much into a single opinion piece from a brand-new editor.

My media colleagues for the print and radio outlets that cover the county and various cities around here know I have consistently tried to have a professional relationship with them, and generally have succeeded. What readers say about all of us is their opinion, but I need to be careful saying very much myself about my colleagues.
 
And there's more than enough blame to throw at my own work too; I'm well aware how much I'm missing. For example, right now I'm missing the beginning of the jury trial of the guy who hit a Richland firefighter on the interstate because I've got too many backed-up articles to do. Now that I am working on my own, I have to be ultra-careful, not just very careful like I've always been, about litigation matters. Nuff said? I don't want to say much more about that here. What I will say is that after 18 years in the working press and numerous lawsuit threats, I know libel law far better than most people around here and most of the people who have threatened to sue me over the last four years wouldn't get past an initial motion to dismiss if they ever filed suit. But if a judge ever did let a libel lawsuit go to trial, I'm looking at years of litigation and five-digit legal bills.
 
I will add this -- the new editor is young enough to be my daughter. She seems like a nice person. I don't want to see her get manhandled for one opinion piece and it's why I posted it without analyzing it in any detail. I know how difficult it is to try to cover a new community and we'll have a lot more basis to evaluate her work in a few months.

I know it sounds crazy but people in government don't want you to report anything other than what they want you to report. What a perfect world that would be. Sounds like the Daily has sucumb to their demands. Sad.. Glad it wasn't them covering Hitler.
 
I'd imagine less people will want to read it, as if their readership isn't low enough already.
 
For a feel good story maybe the Daily could ask the good witch of the east to come up with some funding for the Sheriff's Department. Maybe the 7 dwarfs could form a committee for economic development.

I liked this one where Bigedd promotes PCW!!
  bigedd 3 hours ago   Report Abuse   This is pure drivel. The DG is a NEWSpaper, not a feel good paper. News is not supposed to make people feel good, it is supposed to inform, good or bad. This paper has really gone downhill in the short time it has been under new management. For starters the management team needs to at least live in Pulaski County. I do not intend to renew my subscription. If you want to know what people are saying about this rag, check out the Pulaski County Web Portal. And of coarse Shannon corrected her spelling! ;D ;D :wink1a:
Remember I'm a nudist so when you respond to one of my post yor talking to a naked man  :)

If you really want to complain, do what Sandra Crawford did and write a letter. Darrell has already said many times that they do not check their blog, so they don't know what you're saying.

OK, three items here.
 
First, I do **NOT** recommend cancelling subscriptions to the Waynesville Daily Guide. One of the first things I did when I left the Daily Guide was that I started buying a copy every morning about 5 a.m. when it comes out on the newsstands to see what they have that I don't yet know about. I've also ordered subscriptions to two of the three weeklies in the county, monitor KFBD radio hourly, pick up a Guidon every week, and will soon have a subscription to the county's third weekly.
 
Second, Okie is right. If you want to have an impact with the Daily Guide, don't complain here or on the Daily Guide's comment section... put your post somewhere their staff will see it, which means a personal call to the editor or publisher, or a letter to the editor in print. I want to see the Daily Guide be the strongest possible publication -- I believe in capitalism, and I believe competition makes all of us better. That won't happen without people making their voices heard about what they want.
 
Third, if you are absolutely bound and determined to cancel your Daily Guide subscription, you will save yourself $86.50 per year for an in-county subscription while still being able to read the Daily Guide online for free. What you do with your own money is your own business, but if the reason you're cancelling your Daily Guide subscription is that you want to stop paying them because you like my work, give some serious thought to redirecting that money to support the Pulaski County Daily News, which you're already getting for free.
 
$100 will pay for one month of a "banner ad" to advertise your business or promote your school or church or community organization or whatever on every page of the Pulaski County Daily News, and $80 will pay for four "page ads" at $20 each. So if you live in the "Anytown School District," talk to your superintendent and you can pay for an ad supporting your school that will appear on the next four articles I write on your school board meetings, or maybe you want to advertise your church or community organization for a month with a clickable ad that includes a link to its website. I can also arrange a number of other sponsorship options, depending on what interests you.
 
The bottom line -- online media, like television and print, rely on sponsorships and advertising to function. I have the financial backing to survive for quite a long time based on commitments from some very upset local businesspeople, but to do what needs to be done to make the Pulaski County Daily News a long-term success, I need to do more than "survive" -- I need to expand my coverage and add staff, including a sports reporter, a features reporter, and a second hard-news reporter. And I cannot do that without additional revenue. Some of my financial backers are quite capable of paying all my bills for all these things, but they are quite correct in saying that I need to aggressively seek ad revenue and other means of support, not just rely on "big donors" for backing. Again, that's capitalism, and it's the way things are supposed to work.

What you do with your own money is your own business, but if the reason you're cancelling your Daily Guide subscription is that you want to stop paying them because you like my work, give some serious thought to redirecting that money to support the Pulaski County Daily News, which you're already getting for free.
 
$100 will pay for one month of a "banner ad" to advertise your business or promote your school or church or community organization or whatever on every page of the Pulaski County Daily News, and $80 will pay for four "page ads" at $20 each. So if you live in the "Anytown School District," talk to your superintendent and you can pay for an ad supporting your school that will appear on the next four articles I write on your school board meetings, or maybe you want to advertise your church or community organization for a month with a clickable ad that includes a link to its website. I can also arrange a number of other sponsorship options, depending on what interests you.
 
The bottom line -- online media, like television and print, rely on sponsorships and advertising to function. I have the financial backing to survive for quite a long time based on commitments from some very upset local businesspeople, but to do what needs to be done to make the Pulaski County Daily News a long-term success, I need to do more than "survive" -- I need to expand my coverage and add staff, including a sports reporter, a features reporter, and a second hard-news reporter. And I cannot do that without additional revenue. Some of my financial backers are quite capable of paying all my bills for all these things, but they are quite correct in saying that I need to aggressively seek ad revenue and other means of support, not just rely on "big donors" for backing. Again, that's capitalism, and it's the way things are supposed to work.

DTM, checked your site and I can't find anything that outlines the details on your third point above.  If I may make a suggestion; a link or banner ad somewhere on the main site may generate revenue.  I would love to propose an ad program to a specific group which I represent, however I'd much rather be able to point the decision makers to a web link or online form instead of quoting a statement you've made on another site.  Make sense?
 
Send me an e-mail, I'd like to get something worked up for presentation at our next meeting in a couple of weeks. 
 
Thanks,
Timmy

You guys should have just parked every police car where it flooded and let FEMA buy you all new ones. Tell them you were making everyone aware of the exact spot it was gonna flood. You were helping us.
 
I would have told them it saved my life so they would have believed it.

The expense and mileage we had during the great ice storm were reported to FEMA and the county got the money back for GR.

wwhhhoooo Nellie!!!!  Are you saying that FEMA gave Pulaski County funds to reimburse PCSD for this natural disaster, AND that those funds DID NOT come back to PCSD, but rather went somewhere else in the County?!?!?!   Am I reading that right JB?

Yes FEMA gave the county some funds to cover expenses we had and they went into the GR fund. Compared to R&B we were a little drop in the bucket.

Was that legal?  Did FEMA give an itemized list of how they computed the amount of funds given to the County?  Can anything be done about it?

The money for the expenses came from the general revenue fund and therefore the payment from FEMA went back to the general revenue fund.   Just like when the state pays inmate room and board it goes to GR
