Oops, Hammond Loses An Old Friend

In this weekly community newspaper the publisher attacks Commission Chairman Mike Hammond over his vote on the Midway Business Park. Using the words "dismal failure". The publisher has always stated that he and Hammond go back to the early days of WIVK and it's parent company, Dick Broadcasting. Obviously one vote can turn one old friend into a name calling enemy to the other friend. It is sad that one issue has to do this to someone that publishes a weekly newspaper. We should all use the advice of Alex Haley and Senator Lamar Alexander, "Find the Good and Praise it". It is equally sad that publications become such purveyors of name calling and negativity.
