Readership very strong
The recent Mississippi Press Association Mid-Winter Conference was uplifting and reassuring for this “old-timer.”
The biggest thing I took from the annual event was that community newspapers, who are serving their towns and counties as they should be, remain the primary source of news and advertising in those communities.
Close to Nowhere
“It was 20 years ago...
...today, Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play.”
Oh wait, that’s not what happened 20 years ago.
Twenty years ago, Feb. 11, 1994, the lights went out in Georgia.
Oh, wrong song again. The lights actually went out all over the Mid-South.
Oh winter weather, where art thou?
I just want to know one thing. When are we going to have honest-to-god winter? The forecasters keep giving us dire warnings of maybe sleet, snow, freezing rain, with a holocaust thrown in just to keep us on our toes.
They keep bringing up the fiasco in Atlanta, which I think is unfair. Having lived in the Atlanta area some years ago, I know how unpredictable their weather can be. The big dogs did the best they could.
