Hey Roseville, What Issues Do You Want to Talk About in 2013?

Tell us what you want us to cover in the comments below, and share this story with your friends and family in town.

Now that the holidays are behind us, we want to take a moment to look forward at 2013 to see what local issues we should be covering.

Us editors took a bit of time off during the holidays to relax with family and recharge our batteries, but now we’re back, and we really want you to guide our coverage going forward.

So Roseville, what should we be covering in 2013? Whether it’s a simple news tip or a broad issue or subject, please tell us what you want to discuss in the months that lie ahead.

The three of us (Justin, Cody and Josh) are here to converse with you in the comments below this article.

We don't have the ability to cover everything in town, so we want your help in allocating our energy toward things you want to read about. Feel free to tell us why your suggested issue is important.

Would like to see a survey of Roseville residents as to their biggest complaints for not patronizing the Historic Old Town Bars

Time to attempt some real journalism. Quite reprinting "ideological talking points" as fact. The current cant often comes from existing political sources at the county and city levels. They expect their output to be accepted as some sort of strange "truth". Just because they "said so"? Examine the sources. Question the authority and the reasons. Follow the money. Who benefits? Name names. Who actually voted that way and why? What projects are underway in the county without the involvement of the local communty "before" decisions are made. And, I don't mean the business community. I mean the local voters. Otherwise you cannot be taken seriously. Much of what happens in Placer County is ideologically driven by politically extreme and religious-oriented associations masking economic interests who receive little or no real press as to their level of involvement in government. Just because their spokesersons wrap themselves in the flag does not mean that they are activing in the public's interest. On the other hand, current press is far to often relegated to being "supermarket rag" fare. The quality of the writing has to go up. Articles are too often printed without much in-depth research or secondary sources. Too often we get the impression that the articles are "ghost-written" by PR firms to sell "soap" for their benefactors. This would be a good place to start.

p.s. check your spelling before printing your article.

I'd like to see a higher percentage of actual Roseville-related articles. Less general opinion pieces (or at least give me a tool to filter these out of the RSS feed). I started reading and enjoying Roseville Patch because it was nice to have one site I could check and see nothing but highly localized news. Now we get all kinds of generic posts that don't have anything to do with our city. Some recent examples: * How to use a pedometer to meet your fitness goals * Five ways to save energy * Baby name regrets * How to keep your new years resolution * How to keep your pets safe when you ring in the new years * 8 ways to beat stress in 2013 * 5 ways to start saving money in the new year * 20 ways to go green in 2013 * 12 top children's books of 2012 * Is Les Miserables the must-see movie of the holiday season? etc, etc, etc. Get back to what you do best. If it's a slow news day, so be it! Don't fill the stream with unrelated subjects that I can read about anywhere else.
