That paper just needs a good bashing, some poor kid gets into a wreck at the fair and nothing gets posted on their website.
Some bird dogs get loose, are picked up by strangers and its like they want a friggin posse formed to go find them, posted the headline in all CAPS just to show they mean business. I don`t think they wrote about Terry Sullivans murder in all CAPS.
Nice priorities Expositor, you suck.

I'm not trying to take up for the expositor but there's no way you can make any comparisons between those stories. There's not much anybody can do about the boy hurt at the fair except pray. And Terry Sullivan was already dead when that story came out. So there was no urgent need to alert the public about either one of those stories. The dogs were stolen and that's one way to alert the public to be looking out for the people who did it. But again there's no comparison in those 3 very different stories that have 3 different priorities to the public. 2 are simply informative and the other is urging the public to act.

I'm pretty sure the original poster said "on their website."

Nobody's asking for a special edition. You idiots read the same way you write.

The facts, you are a dumbass. Next time try some reading comprehension please. Never once in my rant did I mention the print version, but I stand by my original statements - expositor sucks.
The correlation between the Sullivan tragedy and a the dog incident was only meant to show the paper sensationalizing their own interest by SHOUTING TO ITS READERS.
It may be unfair to criticize and nit pick but, if the expositor wants to be the recognized source for news in White County and Sparta they should at least try to do a better job at disseminating information than the people posting on topix.
huh

Those stories were up there before the kid that wrecked his 4 wheeler. They don't update the site daily. If they did why would anyone buy a paper? use your simple minds if you can. And why do so many people have a hard on about what happened? if you were close friends or family then you would know. this is kind of disturbing.
What the heck

sounds like that you have a grudge, anyone with commen sense knows the website isn't updated daily, you stupid idiot!!! They try to do the best they can. If you think you can do better, go talk to the publisher, and tell him you would like a job to man the website, so you can spred all your gossip on there instead on topix.. You are just wanting to start up some crap before ben lomand unhooks your internet,because you can't pay your bill, because you spent all your change at the fair lastnight. Hope you liked that funnel cake was good for you!!! What A LOOSER!!!!

The expositor is ran by a guy that ran a shopper type paper, not a news paper. They will not let the workers print the news, it may offend someone. They have no one to hold them accountable YET. Trust me this is about to change. The site is sooooo stale and by the time they print something it is not considered news any longer, by that time its considered history. Where is a Bobby Anderson type for our for my generation?

You do know your opinion doesn't mean squat don't you? If you could do anything about it, you wouldn't be on topix bitching.

The Expositor is a news source in only the loosest definition. There is no investigative journalism or up to date information. The paper business is on it's last legs, but they don't even keep their website updated very well. They take a few pictures at the random accident/crime scene and then get a copy of the police report and re-write it without asking anyone anything or questioning anything.

The Sheriff in Putnam county is sued and the H.C. has a big story about it. Oddie gets sued repeatedly and there has been one case to make it to the paper and then no one ever acknowledged how it turned out.
same old story

you suck, try getting a job there, and change the website every minute someone blows their nose. Instead of wanting to complain, and start crap. Come on, do it you Clark Kent wannabe. Get off your lazy back side, and put your money where your mouth is. I can't wait to read your work!!!!!!! Hell,,,, I will even re-new my subscription for life, and give all the credit to you. You will be the savior.
