  • WHOA, WHOA!!!

    HOLD ON, that name and numhber at Calsonic is for internal use only. They are not set up for outside contributions, but would appreciate any help given to the Red Cross. Please do not call Christina at Calsonie as I just did. Thanks.

  • Poksalad,

    It was in response to John asking what organizations were doing. As he is normally doing human interest pieces. It simply stated, She could direct you, (meaning John). If it was meant for the general public I would have said otherwise and I apologize if this was not more forthright.

    So if Christina is getting a ton of calls, my bad. I know she is hot though. Yum

  • "You won't read it as it happens in the Shelbyville Times Gazette."

    I'm not sure if you meant that as criticism or not, but our first priority is reporting local news. We do include AP coverage of things like Japan as space permits, but our belief is that people want us to concentrate on what we can do best. We're never going to compete with CNN, and it would be ridiculous for us to try.

    My original purpose, if you remember, was to try to find a local angle on the story. I found one, and it will be in Sunday's paper.
