Not that Columbuzz had any impact on the local paper reporting the news today, we like to think we had a part in it.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see when the local paper misses stories.

The question is do they miss those stories because of choice or because they are distracted.

Do they intentionally not do a story when it makes Columbus Indiana, Mayor Kristen Brown and Columbus Police look bad? Sure they do!

The most recent story involves the Columbus man drug lord, FBI busted Tuesday.

I wonder why Columbus PD wasn't involved with the take down or our local paper reporting about it.

They talk about all the meth lab busts but yet this bust being the largest hub right here in Columbus under the cops noses makes them look bad. 

No pun about the meth being under the cops noses, but it is funny they missed this bust. 

If Columbuzz gets our local paper to report the news they should regardless of the image it portrays on Columbus Indiana then we have done our job.

The selective reporting needs to stop and even though they won't stop misquoting people we will hopefully always release the news we think is worthy.

Maybe "the greatest Columbus Mayor ever" should be asked about this considering the fact that 12 of the 14 months involved were during his watch.

This is why this site (ColumBuzz) is so unique. There are no policies of submitting ONE article a month. You don't HAVE to be forced into joining Facebook, Twitter, or any other social networking site to post any comment. By the way! What's the deal with all these sites now requiring you to have membership on such sites? Use to be the most you'd have to do is give a username and email at the most. Gathering a bunch of people into a few social network cages sure would make it easier for BIG BROTHER to monitor people in the name of NATIONAL SECURITY. This is just my reasoning for not wanting to join these social network sites. Has such coersion of what people had to say and control of propaganda been done before? Remember a guy named HITLER?

William, on this I am in total agreement. Anonymity scares the hell out of the government because they simply have NO CLUE as to who is saying what. The Repugnant uses Facebook so they will know who is behind the comments. It's that simple. For elected officials and others, they want to know WHO is commenting so they can, at least, attempt to control the public dialogue.

Columbuzz probably gets a lot of hits. It's because people can say ANYTHING without fear of being outed. Whether the truth is contained in ANY story is for the people to decide. Some die on the vine, others take on new life and end up being covered by the Repugnant or other media sources. Basically, this web-site gives voice to everyone. No one is forced to read it anymore than they are forced to read the National Enquirer and there are similarities between the two.

There have been a few occasions, and I can't remember which stories, but they have been on here first, then read it the next day in the paper. I like what you said P101, about choosing to believe and what not to believe what you read on here, however....

There were 6 police vehicles and a K-9 unit in the apartment complex I live in.
The police did take someone into custody. I have been watching the Republic to see who it was and what they were arrested for. I have a child and I do not like knowing that things are happening in my complex and the Repulic does not have the arrest listed or an article on the arrest.

The Republic provides a source for local news. They are not required to tell you everything under the sun that happens in this town. The police are not required to tell you everything either. I know that bothers a lot of people who are so damned nosey about other people's business that they seem they cannot survive without knowing every blessed thing about everybody. I think this site reveals that when there are too few "stories" to entertain the gossip-mongers, some create stories out of their own warped minds to get their "information fix". They don't care if it's true or false. They just must have that desire for information about others fulfilled.
So many people here give the impression that they are "entitled'. And as far as people saying anything here without being outed....I laugh at the statement. Past history PROVES otherwise. AND...you can't say "anything" here either. The admins do not approve every comment. Again, past history proves to the contrary.
Social networking subscriptions? No law says you must sign up with your real name, but IMO, social networking is the most ridiculous farce I have ever seen. People making their private life public for all to see, as if their life is so glorious they must play show and tell to the world. There are oodles of creeps and deviants out there. Why do people share family photos and personal information with complete strangers? Is it vanity? They have Internet in prisons too, you know. Today's society is quickly becoming a mass of roboters and robotees.
People, people, people.....................G-E-T L-I-V-E-S!

What really burns my mind about all this Drug problem is that we the people of Columbus always want to push blame on others. Very few of us want to take responsibility for the issue. The drug cartels have years of hands on experience watching, building and maintaining there supply lines. Our Officers and elected representatives have nothing more than a peep hole into the realm, lifestyle of drug trafficking. We the people are missing the point in my opinion. We sit back and point the finger at our elected officials and policing agencies. But, take no responsibility. Drugs are here and to stay, Mind altering substances have been a part of human history since the beginning. Humanity has survived. Until we end this War On Drugs and bring light to the dark shadows we have created with this war on drugs / people we will continue to escalate the militarization of our one time long ago police force that had compassion for the people it served. I do not believe the drugs are the issue it is our constant and failing desire to control others. Many people can use the substances which we deem illegal without negative consequences. But once a person becomes dependent they shunned and caged without proper education and treatment options. Pharmaceutical companies create addicts at the beginning of our people's lives with Adderal (Amphetamine), Ritalin (methylphenidate), Cymbalta (Duloxitine), Vicodin (Hydrocodone), and recently our elected officials have allowed the use of OxyContin ( Oxycodone ) in Children. Our government is alllowing this War On Drugs AKA War On Citizens to develop into a Police State stealing our rights and liberty. Once we all take responsibility for our culture and society and stop persecuting the people most in need of our help we will continue to count the victims I this War Against Our Sisters, Brothers, Mothers, Fathers and most of all CHILDREN. Alcohol, tobacco kill more of us than all illegal substances combined. Prescription drugs alone kill more of us than all illegal drugs combined. Compassion and Love for our Brothers, Sisters, and Fellow Man is the only way to defeat this inhuman War On Drugs....
