  1. Dera Early Bird,

    Is the Early Bird a POLICE BLOG or a community newsletter of events and opportunities to contribute to the community?

    For those of us who need all the dirt on the all the drunks and disorderly people in the area, I think we can research weekly police reports available to the public on our own.

    • Wendy,

      Pretty sure we have always been a news information and opinion blog. So yes we have always published police reports as local news. Thats what we do.

      If you want community events there are listservs, newspapers and organizations for you to peruse.

      Alas, as we frequently tell people, you dont have to read or subscribe to Early Bird. Police reports. Yes. That is what we do.

      WEB

      (An additional comment: We at Woodstock Early Bird have actually worked very, very hard to ensure that the public DOES have access to timely information from police about incidents in our small community — The point is, up until Woodstock Early Bird, the public here did NOT have any place to glean such information upon which to base their sense of community and/or safety. Without public information — ugly/unpleasant or not — there can be no conversation about important issues within the community. So, we post the actual text of police press releases relevant to this small area so that readers can have timely knowledge of what is really going on beneath what is often portrayed as a pristine -but often untruthfully so — veneer of Village life. This has NEVER been a community bulletin board. WEB)
