You can tell it is a personal negative attack by McElroy because of the photographs that he used of Witt and Kirkham. For McElroy to invade the personal space of Witt and Kirkham is the normal standard for Jack McElroy. But let a blogger point out that he (Jack McElroy) doesn’t pay his personal property tax or that he (Jack McElroy) and his fellow Scripps Employee Sandra Clark violate a nepotism policy and he will claim it was an oversight or that he had nothing to do with it.
Roane County Mayor Mike Farmer will ensure that the citizens of Roane County get their 44 cents of postage from Kirkham. The public will be made whole. As for the rest of this story it it typical McElroy potty news coverage. It is a non issue that doesn’t warrant space in a regional daily newspaper, much less front page. This story really is more suited for his other Scripps publication, the Shopper News. After all the Shoppers only use is to provide free birdcage liners to the citizens of Knox County.
