Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

UP: To Parkersburg Police Chief Joe Martin for his appointment to the FBI's National Academy for training. Martin will leave next month for a 10-week course in Quantico, Va. This is a wonderful opportunity not only for Martin but for the city. The criticism from some - including current Parkersburg City Council member and mayoral candidate Sharyn Tallman - that there is some underhanded political reason for this move is ridiculous. Unfortunately, this is the kind of noise that occurs every election. The fact is the FBI only holds these classes four times a year, and the agency chooses the candidates who will attend - not the other way around. If Martin wanted to attend this training, he has to go when the FBI has an opening.
