Glad to see someone likes the Howell County News. It's more like the Mountain View News.

Howell County News is an excellent local paper that has made it in our area, a real accomplishment. Kim provides a variety of articles from local news and events to the police report to interesting articles on history by Mr. Wehmer. She is always willing to include information from organizations and fun-raisers and does not charge for obituaries like some papers do. Well done, Kim.

I enjoy the paper as well.
It's a county newspaper that happens to house the office in Willow Springs. The paper would print rather thin if it was filled with only information pertaining to Willow Springs.
It's nice to keep up with what's happening in surrounding towns as well.
I will continue renewing my subscription.

Glad you are enjoying the paper. Good thing we had a meth bust in Willow Springs so we could get on the front page. Otherwise, everything on the front was from elsewhere.

That's why the paper is called "The Howell County News." It covers news in the county, not just in WS. Perhaps we should be glad that the bad news often happens elsewhere.

I'm a big fan of Howell County News... My problem is that I now live out of state & wish I could get the paper online. Last year I subscribed & at the end when I went to renew I couldn't..:( I even called the office several times & nobody has returned my calls. Would happily pay just to be able to keep up with what's going on in a little town that is home to me.

I get real tired of all of the bad stuff that happens in the community on the front page. I wish Kim would put good things on the front and the bad stuff in the middle or back.
I do read the paper and appreciate that it covers the whole county.

The Howell County News paper in Willow springs is the only paper in Howell County
I will purchase. The other two I know the owners and the Standard in Mtn. View is best when I place it in the bird cage.

Agreed, but in many of our communities it is hard to find good news. How many times can you read abut the Star Theater, Ferguson Building, the Bailey's, or Wizard of Oz?

Yeah, but wouldn't it be worse if there was nothing happening in the Star Theater or the Ferguson? I like the paper and I'll continue to read it......

Ha- you're damn lucky to have a paper at all in a town the size of Willow Springs. How many times did you ever see a Willow story in the Mtn View News? If anything was in the Quill it was always all botched up- like anybody in West Plains cares about WS anyway. The advertisers in the other towns and John Bailey pay for you to still have a paper, and you might do well to remember that. As for bad news- hell yes run the child molestors and meth busts on page one- that' what a newspaper is for. You'll still find all the butter and pie stuff on the inside. Good Job Kim!
