06.09.06 -- EDITOR'S NOTE: Lowdown on Audio Files
Friday, June 09, 2006
I've attached my audio files of public meetings under links on the sidebar.
These are primarily Town Council meetings. Some are .wav files which means you can click on them and they will open a player in your browser screen and you, too, can hear town meetings unfold.
My more recent files are .wma -- windows media files. (I bought a new audio recorder with more memory.) The files work spectacularly in my world because I am a PC user. When you click on them, you can download the files and can save them to your computer. If you really want a file and can't make it work -- drop me a line and I will try to help if I can.
What you won't find on here are any audio files of one-on-one interviews since they are private between me and my sources. Public meetings are fair game though. I feel like the town should be more committed to making this information accessable.
Most of the news reports I write on here will be based on public meetings -- feel free to listen and make your own decisions.

Editor and Publisher:
I'm Cher From McIntosh, FL I'm a graduate student at the University of Florida working on a master's degree in Mass Communication. While I was finishing my undergrad degree in journalism last year, I reported on McIntosh, Fla. for an in-depth reporting class. I figured that the reporting and the public record files should go somewhere people can access them. Reporters don't report to keep the information they find to themselves. Some of that reporting is included here in a forum that allows response. McIntosh suffers because with no news coverage, the local government and the rumor mill have too much potential to run rampant over residents. I moved to McIntosh in the fall of 1999. My profile
