Welcome Message and Mission Statement

Welcome to the NEW Atkinson Reporter! Under new management, with new resolve.

The purpose of this Blog is to pick up where the Atkinson Reporter has left off. "The King is dead, Long live the King!" This Blog is a forum for the discussion of predominantly Atkinson; Officials, People, Ideas, and Events. You may give opinion, fact, or evaluation, but ad hominem personal attacks will not be tolerated, or published. The conversation begun on the Atkinson Reporter MUST be continued!

This Blog will not fall to outside hacks from anyone, especially insecure public officials afraid of their constituents criticism.

Monday, May 11, 2009


The Atkinson Reporter would like to apologize for the lack of content over the last two weeks. The Blog Administrator was on vacation in the Carribean, and did not have access to the internet. We will seek to rectify this situation for the future. Again we humbly apologize to our regular readers.

So what happened to the deleted posts?

Anonymous said...

I would like to know too. I think there is more going on here than meets the eye.

Anonymous said...

Aside from the two blogs above why didn't you tell the readers of your going away or have some one you trust to carry on while you were gone?

Atkinson Reporter said...

To answer your questions;

1.) I don't know who deleted the posts, only that all passwords and firewalls have been changed since.

2.) In light of the extraordinary effort of police chief Consentino, and his merry band of jackbooted intimidation practitioners, I trust NO ONE! We have lost two moderators to political pressure, and are awaiting acceptance from their replacements. Again, I am sorry, but did not realize that I would be out of communication.

Is hacking into your website and deleting posts a crime? If so, I'd follow up on it with the authorities.

Anonymous said...

No apology is needed when we are dealing with a group that is hell bent on shutting the public down.

Be very careful and I agree trust no one.

Maybe we could find out what happened to all the post's that were deleted. It would be of interest to all the bloggers.If there is more to this, we want to know the story behind the story.

Freedom of speech is at stake here and the powers that be don't like it.

Atkinson Reporter said...

To Anon @ 12:55;

You are right! I should notify the police chief immediately!

I am sure he would love to know who runs this, so he can stop wasting valuable taxpayer funded time reading this site.

That way he can just go straight to suing the bloggers, and crowing about it at selectmen's meetings, remaining strangely quiet when he loses. Isn't that his past track record?

Anonymous said...

Don't let that concern you Mr Brownfield. Most people already know that you've taken over the blog from Mr Acciard.

ROFL, Nice Try Frank! Keep Guessing!

Anonymous said...

Ha,HA, HA the hacks try to attack the reputations of people who are suing them.

But, I can't figure out their pea brains. Cause, IT IS A BIG TIME HONOR TO BE NAMED BLOG ADMINISTER.
They don't get that!

Whoever runs the blog is a LEADER that created a forum for freedom of speech and opinion. Many thanks.

That is very different from what entrenched hacks want. What do they love to do? Look real close. They seek to suppress freedoms and expression of opinion as that gets in their way. No wonder they try to hack and disrupt a free speech blog.

A bully is like shit on your shoe. If shit is on your shoe what do you do?

ROFLMAO!!! A regular Thomas Frickin Paine this blog administrator who's suing the town is! Yup, that's Browfield for ya. Thomas Frickin Paine! LOL! You people kill me. Hey Brownfield, did you know you're just a home Patriot??? LOL!!! The things some of you conspiracy theorists come up with. You should really write comedies! LOL!!! Thanks for the laugh.

Anonymous said...

ROFL and you offer what as proof that Brownfield is running this?

A couple of months ago you said it was Acciard.

Before that it was Artus.

Before that it was Carol Grant

Before that it was Jane Cole

But you keep guessing, it must really piss you off that you cant find out!

Anonymous said...

Carol Grant running a blog!!! HA HA HA! The hits just keep coming!!! Acciard doesn't run this one, he ran the first one. And why should I be pissed? These "articles" and posts make for great entertainment! Keep up the great work because I'm thoroughly enjoying myself! Carol Grant running a blog. Hee hee hee...

It is just a thought but .... if the moderator and the many others blogging were to stay anonymous and the well known principles were to defend themselves as would be expected ... then why not have lawyers get together and act as go betweens on the site? I ask this only out of the fears of retribution from those who are and not anonymous. That way both sides would be able to defend themselves before the town and its critics. If this isn't to be done then wait until the courts and all truth takes place. I can not understand how a person of some thirty years or more in officialdom hasn't been removed from that position after so many law suits have come to be due to their actions. May be the BOS, past and present, should be taken to the "stocks" to be displayed for an agreeable and yet a long determined time for not having responded as would be and are/is required to represent its electorate these past thirty or more years.

My, my, conspiracies abound! You all must be busy--finding one behind every tree.

If you really wanted to help the town, you would run for vacant town government positions, and show the majority that you are sane enough to get elected (apparently too tough a test!).

It is easy to bitch about something--it takes real guts to do something constructive about it.

But then, it appears most, or maybe all of you, don't know that, and are only willing to speak--not act...

Anonymous said...

To May 17th @ 6:54 , You could be right about the conspiracy thinking you have -- but and however -- I do not think it is from behind trees that we the so called conspirators are. I do believe it is from another source of tree product called a desk and counter top. But thats me and the many others who you say is makeing the conspiracies from behind every tree . For you to say to be constructive is some what laughable because if you really think that you can say to the readers here that they should run for office then why haven't you? If you can make that statement to us conspirators then you should run for office. I'm thinking now ,in my conspiracy mode, that you are one who is sitting behind a town owned desk and/or counter top. That could be why you wont or cant run. As for being sane I know I am but I do wonder if ,again in my conspiracy mode, that I am right about you in the foregoing statement if you are any where sane. I wonder that only because you jumped out to protect yourself and made the blog statement as you have out of fear of your own well being in this town governing mess. As for being willing to speak and act - what!! you should talk !! Why not let us know who you are because we conspirators are to afraid to say who we are due to fears of retribution. Show us your not afraid by doing so and be the or a future leader of the towns officialdom or is it dum! Ahh! but then.... !

Anonymous said...

To Anonymous (May 17, 1:20p), directly above: I am a multiple-term elected member of the town government. I have also served our I know I am willing to act. I have protected your rights, and mine, and continue to do so.

And because you chose to remain Anonymous, so will I. A right I have earned, protected, and will exercise.

Anonymous said...

Then I respect you for having said you protected us all and your courage to say your now involved in town governing politics. It still doesn't answer why you wont be as brave to expose your name as your statement has said about your back round. Why would you ,, with this back round you claim to have not want to expose yourself rather than have to ask or tell we conspirators we should run for office . What fear do you have of doing these things? Could it be the same fear we have of retribution?

MAcciard said...

To anon @ 1:52,

I am not anonymous. I post under my own name. I do not hide my observations or opinions, so in that vein I am asking why do you post anonymously?

The common reason for doing this is fear of retribution, but that obviously does not apply to you, so why?

BTW, Just the fact that residents feel they have to post anonymously because of their police chief, is a huge problem, don't you think?

Anonymous said...

To Anon. @1:52 , Mr. Macciard has brought up the same question as I had. Both he and I are asking why you post anonymously ? As he suggests it could be the fear of retribution as is all the others who post here. If Mr. Macciard can post as he has in the past and now and given the things that have happened to him personally then with your back round I see no reason why you cant do the same as he. If what you claim is your record and service to our country local government then it cant be a problem to figure out who you claim to be. Either your a big bluff or ,yes, you are afraid of retribution. This one thing Macciard isn't afraid of and he has shown it. Why dont you do the same?

Anonymous said...

I am not afraid of retribution--I have faced far worse. As long as you and the other whiners post anonymously I will too. What's fair's fair...

As for my background, it is everything I claim it to be, and more. More hints, I have done more financially and leadership-wise for the current and future youth of our community than you would ever consider doing. I have walked the walk...and can therefore talk the talk...Can you say the same?

Anonymous said...

ROFLMAO!!! A regular Mahatma Ghandi we have here! Did you do a walk to the sea to make salt too? LOL!

Anonymous said...

To May 17th @5:27 , Gee, if you keep on giving hints as to who you are in town government "we the conspirators" wont be called conspirators any longer. Why not stop the suspense and say who you are instead of being chicken drek . After all you do claim to be the "hero type" that can lead every one out of the mess called town government. You did say your qualified with your back round did you not? Again, come out of the closet and as others have said else where PUT UP OR SHUT UP . In your next answer ,if any at all, you don't say who you are then we conspirators can only say your back round is as phoney as you are.

Anonymous said...

I don't have answer to you...and won't. You have chosen to remain anonymous and so will I. And yes, I will shut up and no longer waste my time, or others, by responding to you. Bye

Anonymous said...

I guess what I said had more truth in it about being phoney than any thing you said. Glad to see that you are saying "bye" because it has proven your a blow heart of some self importance -- only to yourself and not the community.

Anonymous said...

And being a blow heart of self importance yourself, you can clearly recognize one! Boy aren't you prancing like a peacock now. You done did run that other blow heart off the blog!

To Anonymous, May 15, 5:08,

The biggest, most stupid mistake you ever made was in under-estimating Carol Grant. When she speaks out on an issue, people always listen and back her up.

She unflinchingly successfully took on Consentino, Sapia and Childs when they tried to block the Vietnam Honor Roll. Not only did she get landslide town meeting votes backing her against those bozo selectmen, but she singlehandedly ran a successful fund drive and raised over $9000 to fund the Honor Roll.

She successfully sued Frank Polito and those same bozo selectmen for the bullies they were and got a settlement.

So many times-- whenever there's been an environmental issue on town meeting ballot, she has passed out hand-outs urging the voters to support the environment against special interests, including on the Planning board, and the voters have always overwhelmingly backed her.

People trust her -- her committment to honoring veterans, standing up to corrupt town officials, and to protecting the environment. She's always put the town's best interests first -- never herself.

While she's never been actively involved with the blog except for rare postings (which she always courageously signs her name to), if
she ever did choose to get involved with the blog, it would be to the benefit of the blog, and to the town.

So take your Ha, Ha's and Hee hee and you know what you can do with them. Surprising that you would even use the topic as an excuse to make an attack on Mrs. Grant who has been out of the public eye for quite some time. You must be one of the long-time, perennial resentful haters in town.

BTW, on the day you posted your low-brow attack on Mrs. Grant, she was in the hospital for additional heart surgery. Did your posting make you feel like a big man? -- attacking a woman who was then on the operating table?

Re. Carol Grant comment by 5/19 @ 11:15 AM , I wonder if the same person who wrote the comments is the self important blow heart that said they were so much a leader because of their [phoney ,I think] credentials of service to ones country and community. If it is that person they have to definitely say their "bye" or apologize for their foolish comments attacking her and her rep. for good works done w/i the community.
