RE: Mayor's Race

Question: I know who Karen is, and I expect everyone knows Cary; but who is J. Shea? Someone told me that he is the guy that wears those short shorts and sports about town with a beer in his hand.

If that is true - I think that those recalls two years ago were just practice. Lesbians and Thieves cant hold a candle to that.

Who is He? - it cant be that dude.

Why must some people in this town have such nasty spirits about everything?

I think that's a fairly accurate description of J. Shea. Except, I thought they were Bloody Marys.

If I didn't know better, I would think y'all were a bunch a teatotallers. But the thing is, I do know better.

The town grocery, when we had one, only had four aisles and one was dedicated to booze.

There you go Cher, exaggerating. At least 10% of that aisle was sodas.

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.

"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
