Just what I love about so-called Community Journalism. Avoid the hard news and issues that may affect your bottom line by publishing mountains of Fluff in front of them.

This is nice, though . But Ic an't wait till you do your year end review and Top Ten stories so I can compile the other ten stories you wouldn't touch with an insulated pole. Underreporting and Censorship are alive and well in Cody Wyoming

Keep it Clean. Please avoid obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist or sexually-oriented language.
PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR CAPS LOCK.
Don't Threaten. Threats of harming another person will not be tolerated.
