Yet another debate

Geoff Dean and Dennis Carpenter seem a lot more interested in debating each other than some of this season's other candidates. Last night they faced off for the 5th time already, and there are three more debates scheduled that will be open to the general public (plus a few more for smaller groups that might not be open to everyone).

Our coverage is here. As you can see, there weren't a lot of fireworks. Dean and Carpenter don't seem to disagree on their basic approaches to police work. There was one awkward moment for Carpenter: one of the panelists asked the candidates which new programs or community policing initiatives they would put into place as sheriff, and Carpenter drew a blank. He paused for a moment and then passed on the question. Dean seized the opportunity to talk about how he thinks the department needs a greater emphasis on community policing, better use of crime stats, and better use of technology in general.

We've had some requests to broadcast one of these debates live on our website, and we do plan to do that. That does take some resources on our part, so we can really only do it once for this race. We've decided to webcast one of the League of Women Voters debates next month. Keep your eyes on the paper and this blog for more information.

The Star is often asked to participate in those debates, by supplying some of the questions. What do you think we should ask the candidates for sheriff? Comment away and we'll pass your suggestions along to whoever ends up moderating.

Reading this article Yet another debate - Vote reminds me of my old roommate! He always kept speaking about this. I'll forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a great read. Thanks for the knowledge you post.

I don’t be familiar with you, but I’ve been looking forward to this day for almost eighteen months. There is a lot of good news out at this time there: AFSCME and the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee getting loans to fuel their attack ads; Barney Frank financing himself $200, 000. despite their own money they will don’t know when to quit spending, why should we expect they'll do any better together with ours?

I love the expression. Everyone needs to express there own opinion and feel free to hear others. Keep it up :)

Way to focus and straight to your point, i love it. Keep up the work people. Dont let anyone stop us bloggers.

Amazing freakin blog here. I almost cried while reading it!

Finally a blog that didnt contradict it self, amazing writing. :)

Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

I accept as true with the author that we'd like to share the data we tend to gain!

This is actually important cram thanks!
