Why do our papers not publish any "real" news? I just think they could be far better. For example, the last few "Voices" I've bought were MAYBE 4 pages long.

Now, if their reporters weren't so lazy to work, maybe we could actually have a paper with actual news in it instead of an announcement of some kid turning 4.

At least throw in a couple of Associated Press articles that have news concerning Tennessee or pressing national issues. Geez.

The only purpose "The Voice" seems to play is as a big cheerleader for Craig Fitzhugh and that's it.

Get off your chairs and report something meaningful! I don't care about little Johnny turning 5 or Maggie Sue killing a 4 point deer! And I sure as heck don't care about Craig Fitzhugh because he is a terrible State Rep!
u r so full of crap

WELL IF YOU DONT LIKE WHAT IS IN THE NEWSPAPER DONT BUY IT!!! I FIND IT INTERESTING WHAT KIDS DO IN THE PAPER NO MATTER IF THEY ARE MINE OR ANYONE ELSE'S. I THINK THEY DO A GREAT JOB BOTH THE ENTERPRISE AND THE VOICE! SO SHUT YOUR PIEHOLE AND GO BUY THE COMMERCIAL APPEAL OR SOME OTHER KIND OF NEWSPAPER IF YOU DONT FIND WHAT THEY PUT IN THE PAPER HERE.

They could at least report on the various board meetings and what not. A lot of news happens here and goes unreported.

Maybe they should charge more to cover these extra expenses, pages, and reports. Don't you think?
nope

Nope. Maybe they should work to do their job in the first place.

Would you pay for the AP news? The paper in Brownsville is $1.00 and is full of regurgitated "news" from UT and other sources. The locals complain there isn't enough human interests news. At least Ripley's papers are concerned with local people. If you want an AP paper, buy the Commercial Appeal.
Local papers are just that, local people that want to see their kids and grandkids ball pictures, school news, marriages, etc. Good news, not even the "bad news" that everyone already knows about.

I have always been a dedicated consumer of both newspapers. For some time now there is just not enough pictures and news about the goings on in the county. We used to have reporters actually on the scenes. I know there are a lot of car accidents, house burnings, drug busts, etc. going on. No, I do not find it amusing to see bits of information at times, but there have been instances where I knew the person involved and it did not make the news until it was old. Or nothing was mentioned at all. I live in an area where I hear the ambulance, sheriff dept., city police, State troopers, go by often with sirens, and horns blasting. No news in the paper about it. I would like to go back to the community locals in the Enterprise. Those were always interesting.

If you think the Enterprise and Voice are bad, you ought to see our paper, the States-Graphic.

I don't live in Ripley anymore, but I continued my Enterprise subscription which recently did go up. I agree there is not enough real news. It is entertaining, just not insightful.
