Local journalism will always matter

Posted: Tuesday, October 9, 2018 8:59 am

On the front page today, you can read about cavers lost over the weekend, see pictures from Scottsboro’s homecoming parade, be reminded of the BBQ cook off this weekend and learn about Nicholas Hunter Lee, of North Jackson.

It’s National Newspaper Week this week. The motto this year is “Journalism Matters: Now More Than Ever.”

    Excellent short op-ed. Community newspapers are important to our community and nations knowledge base. James Madison in 1822 said: "A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."
