What stories do you want to hear about?

The best DarkeJournal stories so far have come from reader tips. So what else is going on out there that the local press is not covering? What are the best kept secrets in Darke County? What person - current or former resident - is doing amazing things that nobody knows about?

Leave your tips in the comments? [the best ones may be read but not posted]


  1. I'd like to see more in the Senior journal and perhaps a journal for those that are middle aged and disabled on SSI & SSDI.

  2. I think there should be a weekly "drain on Darke County society" profile. Perhaps a "worst person in the county" this week award.

    Keith Olbermann can't hand out his awards very well, so someone should pick up his slack locally! :-)

  3. Oh, I hope your first two commentators haven't set a precedence for this subject of sincerely asking your readers about what else they might want to read about in Darke Journal.

    The Advocate already does the Senior Journal segment and the Teen Advocate segment and as far as a " worst person in the county" goes, I don't want to feel like I am reading Letterman's Top Ten list every time I log on.

    Please just stick to local events, local politics and local issues, all of which the Advocate sorely lacks.

    The Darke Journal is a welcome addition to this area.

  4. I totally agree with Alex B! We really don't need a worst person award. Stick to the basics of local issues & local politics as you are currently doing.

  5. What about featuring a local artist every wk? Darke county has its fair share of them and the only time we see some of them and their work is at the fair. I wish we had a store where only local items could be featured and bought. Artists have a hard time getting "known". The feature in DJ could be on woodworkers, painters, ceramics etc. Artists are featured at Bears Mill but usually they are out of towners. If one thinks a local artist's work isn't worth an investment try buying an Anna Bier painting now-good luck finding one for sale!

  6. When it comes to local news this is the place. Just the other day there was an article in the the Celina Daily Standard front page, was about something (a local contractor)in Darke County and it was not in the Early Bird or the Advocate. Check out-

    we like this one too!

  7. Last year, the administrator of the county home was fired for alledged misconduct. We never heard the outcome, does anyone know what the outcome was or is this another county coverup?

  8. I'd like to see more info about local projects funded by tax dollars
    for example - the lagoon projects at the park.
    Estimated / projected costs - Bids rec'd - Accepted Bid amount and info on company(ies) completing work
    I'd like the facts regarding these type of projects rather than town gossip.
