While I am very thankful to the FCJ for the majority of their coverage, I have often been left many questions after perusing an article. In journalism, as you know, rules of thumb include asking a question and answering it or making a statement and then supporting it.
For example: 'Todd Lechtenberg gave an update on finances and the budget. Approximately 70% of the budget has been completed.' This is a matter of budget, fund, a big deal to the tax payers. Much more was said in the update. Details, details, details. Many times the FJC is missing in depth reporting and too much is left out. On the other hand, there are times within the same article that a topic that is nonessential is broadened.
I am sorry to point out the negative, the FCJ certainly does many good things as well. I am offering a suggestion to a few of your reporters, broaden your writing skills or perhaps the editor can start giving more responsibilities to better or more experienced writers. At the very least, spread the story wealth so your publication is not as mundane.

EnglishTeacher, i find it ironic that you are commenting about the FCJ's lack of details on certain aspects when you can't even spell "English" correctly. If you think you can do a better job of reporting, why don't you contact the FCJ about offering your services?
