A Conversation with the Local...

They're doing it again. It's like a magic chant to ward off spells. Every time Jim Sturdivant or Mike Mishak is mentioned in a letter to the Local, the paper has a stock answer that pops up at the end of the piece. One need not say any more than their names and poof, the phrase appears. It's akin to a kid saying "There are no monsters under the bed. There are no monsters under the bed..." That's right. They're out there in plain sight.

We can only imagine a conversation with the former editors, the management of the Local and a passerby.


Passerby: It's a beautiful day, Mike.

Local (interjecting): Editor's Note - Mr. Sturdivant and Mr. Mishak resigned from their jobs. The Local did not fire them.

Passerby: I see the Commerce Bank project is still not going anywhere, Jim.

Local (interjecting): Editor's Note - Mr. Sturdivant and Mr. Mishak resigned from their jobs. The Local did not fire them.

Passerby: I read a letter in the Local which include that the former editor and assistant editor left the paper, Mike.

Local (interjecting): Editor's Note - Mr. Sturdivant and Mr. Mishak resigned from their jobs. The Local did not fire them.

Passerby: How's that Community Fund drive going, Jim?

Local (interjecting): Editor's Note - Mr. Sturdivant and Mr. Mishak resigned from their jobs. The Local did not fire them.

Passerby: I wonder what the former editor of the Local is doing these days, Mike.

Local (interjecting): Editor's Note - Mr. Sturdivant and Mr. Mishak resigned from their jobs. The Local did not fire them.

Uhhh. Get over it people. You've done what you've done and there is a price to pay for playing games with people's lives and not being honorable.

The February 9th issue of the Local was written almost entirely by staff writer Kristin Pazulski. The "editor's" contribution was merely another nonsensical editorial with an incomprehensible pun for a title. Puns are usually painful -- even more so when they don't make any census. Get it? I don't.

Perhaps Kristin Pazulski should be installed as the interim editor. She would undoubtedly do a better job.

P.S. Ms. Boynton, puhleeze (as you would say) stop writing paragraphs that consist of a single sentence.
