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.

09.13.07 LPA approves land rezone Wright,, Glass applications

Land Planning Agency chairwoman Charlsie Stott recommended to the council on Thursday night two rezoning applications that would rezone about 34 acres combined of agricultural and conservation land to residential.

The two zoning applications were submitted by Bill and June Glass for a 18.32 track of land and Danaya Wright for a 15.84 track of land on the south edge of town.

Earlier this year, Council Vice President Howard Walkup and Mayor Marsha Strange rezoned their land that runs alongside both the Wright and the Glass land for rezoning. Walkup had been turned down by a council led by Wright for in previous years for this rezoning.

The council will have two public hearings during a rezoning process. Since two council members are most not running again, the new council may have the final decision for this rezoning.

So readers know who's who and have a better sense of being there.

You wouldn't believe how many POSITIVE, face-to-face comments I've gotten from people who didn't know what the people at these meetings look like.

Besides, why not?

How bout this: You run right out, take one and submit it to the blog.

Just remember, if you want me to run it, it needs a photo byline crediting who took the picture.

They would never do that. They would rather just make fun of someone anonymously.

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
