  1. Orange, Mass

    I'm not sure if this where I should be posting, but maybe someone can tell me what to do, and how.
    I'm disabled, and I was on wait lists to get into a handicap community if you know about it the lists are long. I finally got into a nice community in Orange, Mass. I have one problem with the area, a huge one. The only cable company in this area is Time Warner Cable! If anyone reading this is disabled (walking just one of many)you know what T.V. can mean to me. To make this short I moved in…

  2. Philadelphia, PA

    The Calm Act. Should be applied to internet providers, I am tired of commercials jumping up several decibels when I am watching a show that is so low I have to crank up the volume to as high as it can be just to hear it.

  3. Havana, Illinois

    There is nothing new about broadband in rural America. FCC should recognize most of America is rural. I think if a company can provide 100T to Paris and London it should also be able to adequately serve the rural areas it pretends to serve. I know of two small communities outside of the last mile that have no landline, no cable, and no cell tower in range.

    Companies say this a business decision. I say it a travesty to not be able to call 911 from home.

  4. Mozelle, KY

    I have Dish Satellite tv. I live in Kentucky, but my 'local' stations are from Tennessee. Now, Tennessee news is interesting up to a point, but not what I want to see or hear. The satellite reception is good, but I don't receive local news or weather. The Tennessee stations do not give weather for my location and do not follow severe weather warnings and watches. This can be critical in some incidents when high water or ice storms are imminent. If it is the law that I receive these stations, then why are they not required to give me…

  5. Morganton, North Carolina

    Morganton, NC, has a Mayor who after 28 years in office, continues to show his AUTHORITY by not only getting Morganton City Council to "change" the Public Comment policy and ONLY allow citizen comments during a SPECIAL 30-minute time frame just before the start of the monthly City Council Meeting, but twice now, one local citizen, a doctor and taxpayer who signed up to speak experienced a DEAD MICROPHONE during his allotted 3-minutes at Morganton City Council Monday Night. The doctor has worked hard and obtained more than 1600 signatures on a "recall petition" to REMOVE Mayor Mel Cohen who…

  6. Gray, Georgia

    The local newspaper in Gray, Georgia which is a town with less than 5,000 residents, refuses to remove public arrest records from its online version even after notifying residents that the paper's policy is for removal after 6 weeks.

    This newspaper's outright refusal to comply with its own policies is an abuse of Freedom of the Press and Reporter's Privilege. The owner's sole purpose for keeping these records online for longer than 6 weeks is to embarrass and defame, and this should be against the law.

    SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR HUMAN RIGHTS
    The Technology is an increasing part of today’s culture, especially for children and youth, it is educated people and family members responsibility to control and set limit to use of machines in order to live healthy and safe lives. FCC and Department of food and drug administration should force for health warning from internet service providers to issue addiction for health and safety reasons. Internet service providers should not support fake chat rooms and social networking users to keep innocent public busy for numbers of user policy.

  12. Newcastle NSW Australia

    Why does the media glorify and reward the convicted drug dealer Shapelle Corby. The media doesn't realise the damage Shapelle was doing smuggling drugs, damages that drugs do to our children and yet the MEDIA would reward her.

    I TRULY BELIEVE THIS IS COMPLETELY WRONG AND SHOULD BE DISCOURAGE. THE MEDIA IS GIVING THE MESSAGE TO THE SOCIETY THAT IF YOU DO WRONG WE WILL REWARD YOU.

  14. North Bonneville, Washington

    4-2-10

    North Bonneville, Washington, is a small city of around 500 residents.

    County: Skamania
    Nearest city: Stevenson, WA
    Nearest large near Cities: Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR

    Local newspaper is Skamania County Pioneer, no web presence, no state or national news unless told to print it by officials. A so-so newspaper. Likes to print gossip and often is inaccurate.

    Local TV: KGW, NBC affil; KOIN - CBS affil; KATU - ABC affiliate; KPTV - Fox affiliate; KOPB - PBS - best news but not local. Even so, each station is biased toward the right. Perhaps KGW/NBC is the fairest but…

  16. Frederick County, MD - 930 WFMD (Aloha Station Trust, LLC) Public News Radio

    Something isn't right in Frederick County, Maryland. 930WMD and Aloha Stations Trust, LLC have gone too far with their political practices on Public Interest Radio. We need the FCC to look into it.
    Frederick County, Maryland is a small but growing rural community situated 50 miles from our nation's capitol, Washington, DC. It is a community with a strong dedication to its people, farming and conservative values. By virtue of location Frederick County is also a growing community, welcoming cultural diversity, art, science and business both large and small. We have a local paper that folks have depended upon for…

  18. Havana, Illinois

    I live in a rural county dominated by crop and cattle. Our Internet is a duopoly of phone companies. One sells cable and VOIP the other sells DSL and landline.. Both are expensive. If service was superior the cost would be tolerable. it isn't but we have no choice as there is no competition.

    I live in a location that cannot receive the local radio. My solution was to purchase the NPR Livio Radio. It gives me all the access I need to news. The balance i can read in a local and regional papers.
