I was looking at the Clarion News and The Corydon Democrat with some friends, and I have a question for you. We enjoy reading and talking about the Live Wire and Clarion Calls. And I noticed that The Democrat has a whole column of calls every week, but for the past six months or so, there are not hardly any Clarion Calls.
Then, in your Jan. 9 issue, you remind folks that they have to leave their name and phone number to get their opinion published. The reason for this allegedly is, "In case more information is needed."
Well, my question is, "How come Clarion callers have to do this in order to publish their opinion and Democrat callers don't?" The paper has the same owners, so why a different policy? Are people in Crawford County in need of more monitoring? People obviously like it better the other way. Why are we being treated different?
EDITOR'S NOTE: The newspaper goes to several areas besides Crawford County. While I understand that some people are not pleased with the new policy, several others have expressed appreciation for the change. Also, while the Clarion News and The Corydon Democrat are owned by the same family, they are two separate newspapers and have different policies.
