Yeah, and the crybabies in the BCT newsroom can sit by green with envy while an untrained blogger does the jobs their editors don't want to do.

All well and good on the shield law thing. His attorneys have some decent legal arguments. Not sure about the daughter, but the treasurer is a public figure, end of discussion.

But how long till we find out what his real back story/beef is with the latest elected official in his crosshairs?

He broke the story that the treasurer has been signing checks out of county funds, something that's potentially illegal. He's doing a great job covering a story that the BCT has largely ignored.

Maybe his beef with her has something to do with the $6 million or so she withdrew from the county treasury without authorization?

What also should be addressed is why the Beaver County Times soft-pedals or ignores issues John Paul pursues and documents.

Or do they consider what they do as "community journalism?"

They surrendered when they killed JD Prose's political column. They were right on one point: he shouldn't be a columnist and cover the political news. But they should have kept the column, which was one of the highlights of the Sunday paper and the kind of lively commentary newspapers should embrace to stay relevant.

Now they run a softball story once a week on an advertiser. The one last week was about a locally-owned pharmacy that holds its own against CVS and the other big boys. That's their concept of local coverage.

Just sayin'...



Defense rests after Beaver County sheriff takes stand during his trial

http://triblive.com/news/adminpage/6424290-74/county-david-beaver

...David added a twist on Thursday, saying Vranesevich stormed from his office about two weeks before the incident, upset that David couldn't save his domestic partner's police job.

David testified he told Vranesevich that his partner, Brad Davis, who Tasered another officer during horseplay on Dec. 25, 2011, would avoid being fired by resigning from the Ambridge police department — to which Vranesevich responded, ‘Everything I did for you, that's not good enough.' ”
