PAXTON, IL. (ECWd) –
The nearly year-long investigations of the Ford-Iroquois Public Health Department by the Edgar County Watchdogs and others, including the Paxton Record’s Will Brumleve, placed this controversy on top of the list in the Paxton-Record for their top story of 2013. This story alone brought them more than 40 front page articles on this subject.
The Edgar County Watchdogs are proud to be a part of restoring transparency and accountability to the FIPHD. There were many, many people involved and we thank them also.
We also wish to say to the Paxton-Record, “Thank You”, for showing your readers what newspapers are supposed to be doing, but have long pushed aside. “The Fourth Estate” is truely alive and well in Ford and Iroquois Counties, and will stay that way if you keep reporting truth by rooting out the details and reporting on them, however they may turn up. Thank You again!
