Great. So not only can Tony Guy not stay within budget he keeps creating lawsuits against the county. First wrongful discharge, then the pay issue and now wrongful arrest is sure to be filed. Maybe it’s time for a recall election.

Is it too much to expect the Times to fact check their stories occasionally? Is it really “reporting” when you just regurgitate what single sources tell you? That Lisa Micco is definitely a complete failure as a chief editor.

In this instance, I don’t know if I would be too, too hard on the BCT. If they get a press release from the Sheriff’s Department, reporting on the content isn’t necessarily irresponsible if it contains less than factual information.

What this does highlight is that JP follows up on things and goes that extra mile. I think the closed-door meeting led him to learn of this situation rather than the situation leading him to that meeting. That fits the definition of investigative reporting, in my opinion.

Sheriff Guy seems to be under-estimating those around him. I can’t see how this can be a winning strategy for him.

When a press release is issued by a government entity, it is issued to multiple press sources and presumed to be factual….I guess when a Beaver County government entity issues a press release, all bets are off regarding the truthfulness of such press release. I guess that from this date forward, fact-checking is now a requirement for even the most trivial of press releases.

Reminds me of “Cuz Cuz” telling the fairytale of “he” stopped a potential catastrophe by “illegally” arresting the man at friendship Ridge for carrying a firearm. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Tony, you are stuck on STUPID!

Make no mistake, Tony Guy is a Democrat. Talks like one; acts like one; walks like one. He is a poster child for what a RINO is. Republican In Name Only.

Of course he is! He is best buds with former sheriff David and the nepotism squad. They knew Kress wouldn’t go along with their illegal activities, so they had to find someone that would…even if it meant crossing party lines. I say we need a recount, some things are NOT adding up or panning out!
