OK, all my posts keep vanishing. I think there is a bad glitch today with Topix. First, " marshallnews.com " is a domain already in use. So is "marshallcountynews" .

Who made the announcement? Who are the investors? Where was it announced at, and through what medium?

Something about this doesn't seem right, and we need more information. Thank you.

4. DOES NOT SUPPORT THE DUCK RIVER YOUTH FOOTBALL LEAGUE, WHICH INCLUDES 1200+ KIDS AND 10 COMMUNITIES, NOT SMART. GRANDMA'S BUY PAPERS TOO!!
5. THE DAILY HERALD USUALLY COVERS MORE ABOUT MARSHALL COUNTY ANYWAY
6. TRIBUNE FOR SOME REASON THINKS FERN GREENBANK IS THEIR COMPETITION, MAYBE IT IS BECAUSE SHE ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT MARSHALL COUNTY

They do need to support the youth football.The pictures of the kids in sports or school events is the ONLY reason many people would buy this rag of a paper. As far as the reporting goes it should be and entire editorial newspaper cause thats what you get. Daily Herald has more news worth reading about Marshall County than the Tribune.

The Tribune must do proofreading the old manual way.
'Hey guys at the tribune, listen up! They have a new technolgy called COMPUTERS. Modern and even older wordprocessing programs have spellcheckers and grammer helpers!

I challange anyone to find a recent tribune without a few spelling or grammer mistakes.
The people who work for the tribune can't write muchless spell! BTH,
Since when did a WM employee start being the "REGULAR" "guest columist"? Ever heard of "Confilct Of Interest"? Oh, excuse me. You must have OKed this with the county commissioners first! My Bad!
Who is turning a profit for the basketball book the tribune is publishing? Who paid for the fullpage ads for the sale of these book?
I welcome someone from the tribune to comment on this post but I guess they will have to learn to read first!

I guess we just will have to get used to cost of business going up and quality going down. The only real way to insure quality is to support family run businesses. They are the only people who will pour their heart and soul into the effort of doing things right for little reward. The Tribune is not the only business suffering from the times. People who feel proud of their community will do a better job for peanuts than someone just trying to make rent like most of the world. I just hope they read this with the thought of making things better.

Look Marshall County Comm.

THE OLD MONSANTO COMPANY
PROPERTY
4-30-08 Daily Herald Columbia Read the paper

Reported in the Daily Herald
Last week

A Tennessee developer now owns an amount of land roughly equivalent to the size of 23 Maury County Parks

Ardavan Afrakhteh president of Land South TN LLC purchased 5,270 acres for $5.85 million from Solutia Inc according to deeds

Just my opinion now

Would be a good out of the way place far from lots of people if we must have a dump
THINK

How much did SS and MC get for how many acres
Land cheaper in Maury County seams to me

Now look what waste management could have bought
And maybe put the dump in the middle of that
Where chemicals already are may be
But just goes to show
The price of a big piece of land
In a kind of out of way waste land
Better plan
Rather than to pay off
And destroy more good farmland
There is no place for a dump around here
Like that
Thatís what you call looking a head and using you head
Marshall County could have even bought the land
And gave it to them
We been better off
There are deals out there and they don't have to be made under the table
Just my opinion

Is the Steeple Chase in Brentwood really worthy of front page coverage in a so called hometown newspaper? The paper will barely print school
activity pictures but will put a convict getting his GED on the front page. Get real.

I totally agree about the Steeple Chase issue. I thought the same thing. However, I was glad to read about the convict getting his GED. We all make mistakes, some just worse than others. I'm always happy to read about somebody trying to better themselves.

The headline "I Did It" was attention getting but very misleading. At first I thought when I saw the man in the orange jumpsuit it was an article about the shooting in Lewisburg . It's great the man is trying to better himself with an education but the headline was in bad taste.

What is the story with this "new newspaper". I can't seem to find out any credible information on it.

The tribune does not really go out and research, it is really all hear-say that they publish. This person tells their story of something and that's it.... they publish the story and that's it 10 mins of someone telling them something and it'd done for them for the day.

As far as "Jamie Elaine Drenkhahn" is concerned....a full autopsy was performed. Her death was 1st by drowning with blunt force trauma to the head which she received when spinning out of control into a tree due to the lack of guardrails present. No drugs of any kind were found in her system.

--The Mama

PS Due to lots of friends and loved ones, there are now guard rails in place.
