McIntosh Mirror: Reflecting news in the Tosh

Want to impact your community? Many of McIntosh's citizen boards have open seats and a council at a loss as to how to fill them.

Light-up McIntosh December 15

Light-up McIntosh will begin at the Civic Center at 6:30 p.m. The event will host Santa Clause and an area choir from six local churches will sing.

01.27.07 -- ADVANCE: Barn Dance tonight


Judy Barnett and her band will be hosting a Barn Dance tonight at Harvest Village just north of town at 8 p.m. The cover price for admission is $5.00.

I would love it if someone going would write me a couple paragraphs about the dance, like a review. I'll post it and pictures anyone would like to submit. Drop me a line at

To the ass who said the Barn dance sucked. Are you such small, little person without a vocabulary that you can't say anything else? Why don't you explain yourself in more detail so I can see what a bigger ass you can be, or did you really come to the dance? If you did why did'nt you come to the band and tell them that it sucked. I would love to see how a idiot like yourself with no talent could do a better job.

My husband and I went to the dance and I can say that we had a very nice time. The band was very good. I remember when Mitzy put on the Barn Dance, and we were tickled to find out that they have started them up again. Good for Judy Barnett and her band the Harvest Village, we hope you will continue to host them as we will be coming again.

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

About This Blog

The primary purpose of this blog is to accurately reflect what happens in town public meetings and dispel rumors. I record the meetings and make them available for download. One of the goals of this blog is to offer residents a place to voice opinions. The comments, views and opinions expressed there are not necessarily those of the editor.

Web This Blog

"A Popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives." - James Madison, 1822

"Personal journalism is also not a new invention. People have been stirring the pot since before the nation’s founding; one of the most prominent in America’s early history was Ben Franklin, whose Pennsylvania Gazette was civic-minded and occasionally controversial." - Dan Gillmor, 2004, We the Media
