Burglar alarm causes twenty minutes of customer service hell

Want what with that?

If anyone is wondering why I keep posting stories from this paper, it’s because of articles like this. Imagine one of the top stories in your local newspaper involves an alarm going off for 20 minutes.

This is the other reason. If you call the number at the bottom you have thirty seconds to say your piece and the paper will print it. They will print anything too; it doesn’t even have to make sense. My wife grew up in this town. When she was a little kid she called up and said it wasn’t fair that she had to eat her vegetables, and they actually printed it. The phone # is (330) 364-1939, and you can call 24 hours a day. Talk about freedom of the press.
