Story headline: Sandy leaves death, damp and darkness in wake
Comment posted by: Diana

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie -- whose own family had to move to the executive mansion after his home in Mendham, far from the storm's center, lost power -- criticized the mayor of Atlantic City for opening shelters there instead of forcing people out.

    The mayor claims this is simply not true, that Christie is "playing politics".

    I guess government help is wanted NOW! "Darn can't these people be responsible for themselves". The Republicans want it both ways. I thought maybe Romney could "still the waters".

    Nasty storm and I'm glad it's out of here.

    Cheers to 'shendoah1' -- you nailed it.

    It's AMAZING!!!

    The Great Carnack has EVERY answer to EVERY question ever asked.... all you gotta do is visit HIS website where he receives a small ad revenue income every time someone visits.

    Heck, that's nothing. I know what is written in EVERY book in EVERY library in the world .... words.

Story headline: Warren County sheriff looks back at 2010

    Some people should not even be allowed to speak! Before you throw around accusations about the cost of the "toys" at the Sheriff's Office, maybe you should do your homework. The majority of these "toys" you speak of, you know the ones that protect your community from those things that never happen, Beause I am sure New York planned on having two planes crash into the heart of their city, and DC planned on having their Pentagon hit, And Oklahoma City planned on that bombing too. Yes these things NEVER happen! Well, the majority of these "toy' they were pruchased with grants! So, I don't know about you, but I prefer to have my Sheriff's office ran by intelligent people that plan ahead, no one knows when tragedy will strike, we can only be prepared for the worst. So, to Sheriff McEathron and his staff, thank you for all you do for our community! Thank you for be away from your families at night, on weekends, during holidays,to keep my family safe. I appreciate everything you do. Keep up the good work!

    Not that this really matters.. but the article states that a 2011 Jetta was the vehicle involved in this accident; the photo of the vehicle is not a 2011 VW Jetta? :)

Comment posted by: Oh Conservative Me

    This is sad; prayers go out for their souls.
    People do drive way too fast on all of the roads. People start flying starting at the lights at the intersection of Apple Pie Ridge Road. I don't understand why they feel the need to drive so fast. The speed limit is 45 mpg until you get a little ways past the farm market. I can be going a mile or two over the limit and I'll have people blasting past me so fast that they sway my truck and either run the red light at Indian Hollow Rd or have to screech to a halt half in order not to crash. I'm not saying speed was a factor in this crash, I'm just opining that drivers need to be more responsible about how they handle their vehicles. I know we all want to get home, but come on people; let's do it safely.

Story headline: *Man charged with attempted murder of Warren deputy
Comment posted by: Jimmy

    So, the officer makes a decision(the correct one), the department investigates and finds the actions to be justified. The court system, agrees but you need a picture of the vehicle.

    If I were driving across a parking lot towards you, made no contact but was very clearly aiming at you, would you say I was attempting to hit you? I would.

    The officer made a decision to save his life and possibly the life of anyone else who may have been on that road. A description of the vehicle does not keep innocent people from being harmed.

    Not everyone can be stopped by asking nicely, which I am more than confident he was asked to stop and exit his vehicle.

    Let me just say, I am glad he was the officer responding, as opposed to someone more like yourself.

    Thanks again to the officer(s) who responded and acted accordingly.

Comment posted by: Jacques Strappe

    I wonder why Sheriff McEathron won't spend the dollars to equip every patrol vehicle with a dash mounted video camera instead of squandering it on shopping center patrol tricycles? I believe I saw the 'rammed' police cruiser. A little wax and a little elbow grease and that damage will buff right out.

    The use of appropriate buzzwords - - suicidal, rammed, feared for life, etc. -- is standard operating procedure to prejudice outside investigations and grossly inflate mole hills into mountains whenever excessive force is used without the presence of a bona fide threat requiring deadly force. Sheriff authorities are merely filling in the blanks enabling justification of an out-of-control deputy shooting a belligerent motorist, gun-slinging wild west style... the motorist deserved to be shot because he didn't follow police orders.

    A dash-cam could be used to support the facts. Deputies aware their actions are being recorded seem to do a better job in the community. Perhaps the Board of Supervisors should divert some of the funds being used for the new public safety building and see to it dash-cams are installed in all patrol vehicles.

    Rogue cops not following approved procedure cause deaths, inside jails and outside on patrol. Unless a candidate steps forward, McEathron is running unopposed for re-election, and the wild west operations will continue.

Comment posted by: Jenna

    Can we please see the picture of the "rammed" vehicle...it was my understanding that the car was just bumped. They had a description of the vehicle, license plate number, was it really necessary to discharge a firearm? Was it really necessary to injury the accused? Suicidal? Doubtful! Just a necessary word that the Sheriff had to use to to create an elaborate story to justify the unnecessary firing of a weapon by one of his deputies...However, if this person is placed in the Warren County jail, I am worried for his safety. McEathron has had way to many deaths, escapes, etc....Looking forward to election time!

Comment posted by: Snarks

    They do? Really?

    I'm glad that she was found safely, and that she didn't fall victim to foul play.

    As far as her relationship with her mother, her cell phone plan, and what she may or may not be embarrassed about ..... um.... that seems like it's *her* business. Not mine. My mind isn't inquiring about that at all.

    Whole lot of details missing from this tale of adventure. What's with the tightlipped hush-hush???

    Sent home because... Novice trainee broke vow?
    Expelled from.... a school or a convent?
    Who paid for... tuition?
    Evicted from... a dormitory?
    Not talking to... her mother?
    Did not own... a cell phone?
    In need of help... could not call home?
    Cloud of embarrassment... for what?
    Taken to bus station... by whom?
    Moved in with... somebody?

    Hmmmm, wonder what this was all about? Whole lot of drama raising a whole lot of new questions. Inquiring minds want to know.

    I don't understand the "Botanical Boulevard" reference. The way I read this story, they will be refueling at the 7 Eleven across from Courtyard Marriott. But I know of no "Botanical Boulevard" at that location.

Story headline: *Motorist shot by deputy during incident in Warren County
Comment posted by: Rustysgal

    I feel the header is disturbingly misleading. Readers will think that a motorist was randomly shot by WCSO.

    Perhaps instead they could have used
    "Aggressor shot in stand off with Officers" or
    "Troubled Man Makes Wrong Move".

    The current one definitely leaves a negative connotation in the reader's mind.

Story headline: *Officials assessing storm damage across Shenandoah County
Comment posted by: Tstar

    Thanks for the advice! I will probably have to contact FCC because I even contacted Shentel via email (under "complaints" on their website) to ask why they never issued an emergency broadcast when we had 2 days in a row that we had tornado warnings in our area NOR the day before those 2 warnings to warn of the severe thunderstorm) and believe it or not.....they never responded! Imagine that!!

    Hope you are reading this Shentel because all you had to do was respond!! It's really just that simple!
