The question remains

Actually, Utica, we explored the dynamite theory. It's a dead end, for this case. First, they don't blast at 3 in the morning. Secondly, they have done so for years and their blasts are so low level they don't register as quakes with the USGS. We included all of this in earlier reporting.

Late report from candidate Kitchen shows $10K from ex-GOP chair, wife

Former: The headline for the online edition of Vindy for this story was indeed in error (but correct in the print edition). You have a choice when you see a mistake: You can rant about conspiracies or you can bring it to our attention.

In either case, when we spot a legitimate error, we correct it.

Since you begged the question, "Can you image a Wall Street Journal or Washington Post article headline containing such an obvious mistake?" I am including a link to Poynter's best/worst corrections of 2013 to satisfy your inquiry.


But be careful about demanding perfection: You misspelled Dave Betras' name.

Campbell teacher to serve suspension for unbecoming conduct

Over: So, The Vindicator needs to stop thoroughly checking out and reporting on stories about teacher conduct - allowing all sides a chance to weigh in - but you think it is OK to make unsubstantiated, one-sided claims about teachers while hiding behind an anonymous persona? Really?

For the record, your claim of who contacted The Vindicator is completely wrong, calling into question everything else in your post.

What's next?


This story was published at 12:01 a.m., more than 12 hours before any plan was announced. Not sure how that is "a day late and a dollar short." Plus, nothing has been voted on yet so the article and its reporting still stand as a a sound report as to what could happen. Many of us will believe a plan has passed when we see it...

For all of those reasons, before you count words and post insults and definitive conclusions, perhaps check under "sports" on the home page and direct yourself here:

If you were more "adroit" and less "ailierdroit" you might have caught Connelly's main piece on the Peace Race on B1 of Sports.

Maybe be a little more careful before you go off on someone, OK?

Valley retail continues to grow, as more outlets set to open

You gotta love posts like the ones from Author50. To just have that essential grasp of key facts without the messy, complicated need for, say, I don't know, even a Google search that might, let's say, deliver results like this in 0.34 seconds:









There's more, but you get the point.

Youngstown council met in private to discuss the sexual harassment allegations

Wow. Conspiracy theories about a story that was broken by The Vindicator. Of course we would be in on covering up the very story we broke, right?


There were a couple of random stories that were impacted by online glitches today that were remedied mid-morning. Sorry, Snoop Sisters, but that's all that happened.

Beyond that, I can't legitimately address the silliness of Johny and Silence because to do so would mean that I would have to be polite and pretend they could actually fashion "legitimate" questions.
