Re: “Maybe Next Year

The NCJ's periodic tenacity is the only public-interest print media in this county aside from EcoNews.

Thank you.

The widely ignored 2013-14 Humb. Co. Grand Jury also expressed concerns about how at-risk children are being defaulted to police officers who are untrained to handle children and have no requirement for training...add that to our community's other defaults to cops in handling victims of mental illness, drug addiction, rape, and homelessness.

How many other at-risk kids are being detained by police?
Where are they being taken?
What are the outcomes?
What are the alternatives?

"...they (media) navigate(d) through the biggest recession to ever hit this country short of the Great Depression." (JUDY HODGSON)

"Depression"?

Surely you mean "Fire Sale".

Not one media source in this county has reported the number of home foreclosures since the crash began in 2008! Since then, few Eureka neighborhoods remain owner-occupied and our cities are grappling with record homelessness, addiction, suicide, child abuse, and youth unemployment.

I wonder how many people would start subscribing if journalists were allowed, once again, to "connect the dots", "follow the $", and focus on reporting news that's relevant to the searing issues people are facing everyday in our communities?

Instead, most Americans were hammered by 12 months of 24/7 coverage of a primary election in which 80% of potential voters abstained.
