It's not about cost - it's about control

It's not about cost - it's about control

  Make no mistake about - County Councilman George Leventhal claims to be the driving force behind two bills under consideration in the legislature that could destroy the last few remaining independent newspapers in this state - including The Montgomery County Sentinel. The bills are being sold as cost saving measures and needed because public notices, at least in the eyes of Leventhal are a “vestige of last century and big cost to taxpayers as fewer newspapers are published,” Leventhal said in a tweet Tuesday. He also said "The Sentinel has tiny readership and the Post is prohibitively expensive." He has never inquired as to the size of our readership, so one must ask him how he decided our circulation size.

The mentally ill hypocrisy

04-02-2016 Hits:200 Editor's Notebook Mark Robinson - avatar Mark Robinson

I walked into District court Tuesday to testify in a burglary case. Back in October someone broke into my car and took cash and some private items – but thankfully left behind my credit card and driver’s license. A Rockville police officer found my personal property and some of the cash when he was investigating another burglary. The plain clothes officer and his partner rousted a homeless man found asleep under an overpass on Gude drive near Rockville Pike and during the course of questioning the young man they got consent to search and found my property. According to the defense attorney assigned to the case and according to police officers, the young man has an arrest record and has mental health problems.

Friday afternoon as the snow began to fall a few of us gathered at a nearby pub in Rockville and toasted the oncoming “Snowmaggedon,” or “Snowpocalypse” or “Snowzilla” or “Snow-Nino” or whatever funny little catch phrase, jingoistic name my peers in the hallowed halls of television journalism had decided to come with to describe our oncoming doom. We stayed through happy hour and then my partner-in-crime (my wife for those who don’t understand my own jingoistic jargon) took off in the big Ford F-150 to find pubs that would stay open during the storm. We started at The Outta the Way Café because Chip and Brian never close. We weren’t disappointed.
