Every day in this space, we troll local web sites for stuff we think might be worth your time.

Face the State: Brad Jones and his crew of Young Republican-types are not for the dogmatic leftist; they're staunchly conservative, and have a tendency to have opinions that are incredibly strong (and, if you ask me, incredibly wrong). But they're prolific, they dig up some interesting stuff, and are great for opposition research.
