Dear Readers: Blount Today to close
It's a sad day for everyone in Blount County. Now we have to wake up to the phooey that the *?ily tim&%'s prints everyday. Its horrible to think that a newspaper with only interest in the community around them gets cut before big brother, who only has political interest in mind, and manages to publish 50% AP & Wire stories that nobody really cares about.I suppose this is what our country is coming to. Kill the smaller local businesses so the big ones can thrive.
I think that all the staff at the Blount Today did a wonderful job at showing a different perspective of the world at which we live in. This community WILL NOT be the same with out them and it goes to show that there needs to be some restructuring of our local newspapers for any of them to survive.
