The Bristol paper had this report ("'Coon Dog' furor continues," 6/37/04) this morning with more information on Operation Big Coon Dog, the federal bribery case out of Buchanan County.
Also, this from the Hotmail account, this interesting note:
"Thanks for your efforts in posting articles and opinions re: Operation Big Coon Dog. This is a service to many in the county since local papers are printed once a week and regional papers such as Bristol Herald Courier are hard to find as this scandal was revealed. There was much talk and gossip regarding these alleged crimes. Many of these stories may surface as truth (or not). Thanks for your efforts."
