I just came in from checking for yellow perch on Gray's Run off the Bush River in Harford County, one of my early-in-the-year fishing spots, and lots of other people, too.
And guess what? A 1,428-gallon sewage spill caused by an industrial grease clog has the area posted off-limits until further notice.
I'm going to note that in my column.
Next I'm heading to Timonium to the show.
That's what I'm doing.
I notice you use but don't subscribe to Tidal Fish. Hello!!!!! Free rides like that keep businesses from growing. Duh.
Candy, I was in no way responding to your post. I'm thinking this response may have been directed at me? If so, I was posting to everyone reading this thread. In fact I hadn't read your post when I replied. Was saying what we are all doing on this site is why newspapers aren't surviving in the same format. We are using the internet for our information. That's all I was saying, so please don't take offense-it was in no way directed at you as it appears you took it. I have read many of your articles, but on the net, not in print, and I certainly appreciate what you are doing. It's just a different media and it's how "newspapers" will be in the future. There will be a lot less employees of the "papers" but they will exist in cyberspace in a different media.

I am not a subscriber, I have been. I was and I used to post reports with my limited knowledge. I rarely do now for a number of reasons which would be a whole different thread.

is that within two years, most newspapers will shift operations to the Web and the print edition will be reduced to a Sunday paper and a specialized, small circulation daily.
Hearst just announced that it's shutting down the Seattle Post-Intelligencer if a buyer isn't found in 60 days. It's not likely that a buyer will be found in 60 days ...

How ironic we're all here on the internet and not reading newspapers talking about no one reading the newspaper due to the internet.:D

Yeah, just talked to five of my friends at the Seattle paper. One guy is three months from retirement, another just put his mom into an assisted-care facility after burying his dad late last year.
Anytime someone speak gleefully about the death of the Sun, I think of the majority of the 2,000 or so employees--the women who take classifieds, the guys who work at Sun Park--they're the ones who will be really hurting.

Don't forget the thousands of young businessmen who got their first taste of working by delivering the paper.Might not have paid much but it sure taught a lot of young guys job responsibility :yes:.

The internet is OK for some news but far too often a rumor is reported as fact.The papers have more time to check things out.Most of the real news on the internet comes from the papers.

"The internet is OK for some news but far too often a rumor is reported as fact.The papers have more time to check things out.Most of the real news on the internet comes from the papers."

Try reading the sunpaper a little closer. (or doing some research to check the facts) They live on twisting the truth to whatever pushes their agenda or sells some papers in a desperate attempt to avoid the in-evadible. Those who work there know this is true. They do more harm then good. Again - Good riddance.

The kids collected a couple of bushels of pine cones today so we are good to go in our new paper free home.
