They shut down my hometown paper.
Please don’t sigh and blame it on technology because it wasn’t Facebook that killed my paper. The local owners sold the business to a corporation in a big city miles and miles away from here. I still believe there would be enough interest and support if Carthage had its own publication.

But I want a voice.
The Press meant so much more to me than just a job. It was a skillset I admired in my peers. It was a form of community service – my way of giving back to the town that gave so much to me. It represented the heart of the town – the oldest business in Jasper County.
