After receiving a sample copy of the Tower News last Saturday in the mail, I became very bewildered to read the writings of Tony Sikora and Mary Worringer in two separate pieces on the Greenwood reorganization meeting.
Tony was present at the meeting that night. For example, the matter of the paper of record, Gary Albertson of the Tower News stated that “ we don’t try to get you in trouble”.
Was this the key to win the township’s business? Then the motion to select the official newspaper for the township passed, 3-2, in favor of the Tower News. Tony did not report the fact that Gary Albertson then promptly walked out after the vote in his favor. I guess there was no need to attend the rest of the meeting?
Most folks attending remember when Board Chair Rick Worringer threatened to call the sheriff, and the loud and raucous laughter that followed. Tony did not report that, keeping the promise of Gary Albertson. The Timberjay did report the laughter.
Were the writings in the Tower News reporting or commentary? Mary then writes in her letter to the editor that the WDIO news did not interview her husband. Then who was the guy spreading the blame on the news at 10 p.m.? Sure looked like her husband.
She must have watched or heard about the WDIO report on TV, since she quotes the “sour grapes” comment made by Dr. Bassing. Nor does she recall how the new supervisors are sworn in. Was her husband sworn in at the reorganization meeting? Just ask her if you wish. There are many discrepancies in the two writings of the events. Maybe it would be fun to treat the two writings like one of those cartoon puzzles where the two pictures don’t match or one of those brain games. Ever heard the saying that you are entitled to your opinion, just not the facts? I think I will stick with the Timberjay as my official paper.
