You have an interesting view of "cost efficient". What you describe is simply taking more money from taxpayers....how is that "efficient" at all? The Mayor clearly showed that the real cost of contracting it out was less than keeping it with the city. The problem with privatizing is in the long-term if there isn't adequate competition. We may be just big enough to split the city in half and…

Edina Sentinel reporter kept out of courtroom during murder trial

Last week, the defense subpoenaed Sentinel reporter Echo Menges as a witness

From From nemonews.net:

Last week, the defense subpoenaed Sentinel reporter Echo Menges as a witness. By invoking “the rule”, witnesses are kept out of the courtroom until they are called to testify. Exactly what Echo is supposed to testify to is not clear, since she didn’t witness the crime, and has already reported everything else she has found out.

It’s our opinion that the subpoena was simply to keep Echo from reporting on the story. We hired the law firm of Ahern and Bach to argue the issue on a variety of First Amendment and other legal grounds, but our motion to quash was overruled by Judge Gary Dial.

The legal costs alone will likely cost us the Sentinel several hundred dollars. Not to mention travel expenses.

Starting Tuesday, I will be going to Moberly to cover the trial, so that we can finish what we’ve started-bringing our readers complete news coverage of this important issue.

For those of you that think we might do things just to “sell papers”, consider this: IF we were to sell an extra 100 papers, that would be huge. IF those papers were all sold in our office, so we weren’t splitting the money with our dealers, we’d make an extra 55 bucks. So obviously, it’s not about the money.

We do it because we care about our communities, and because it’s the right thing to do.
