Maybe we should start a newspaper since the local paper will only tell part of the story.

The Progress is a waste of time and money. Unless ou are house training a puppy or are only interested in local social events and maybe if were lucky who had a bad wreck. Whoever is in charge out there should be ashamed to show there face in public.
My advise (not that you asked) get a backbone and print some news and quit trying to fill with fluff.

Best local newspaper "Union News Leader". There not afraid tonprint the truth.

Our Progress is a sorry excuse for a paper! I don't believe dave chesney has a thing to do with what is printed. I do believe that the ccsd, especially david ray, has a lot to say what is printed and what isn't. There's a girl that works there that just married a cop and I know for a fact she is not to be trusted. She is now a staff writer but I know she can make things disappear and get away with it! In the "In Memories" part, don't give her a picture!!

What I don't get is if you don't like it here and it sucks so bad why be here??? I admit there is alot wrong with this town.. But it's that way in every town... As for the paper... You want the in memories in right give the picture to the person it goes to instead of the person it doesn't.. It says in the paper where and who everything goes too... DC has nothing to do with what goes in the paper nor does DR.. Something everyone needs to understand... The Claiborne Progress is NOT run by local people nor people from the whole state of Tennessee and they do not care one bit about the DC's or the DR's of this county..

Wrong we only have a couple people who write for the claiborne progess. Most stories are written by Ashley Hurley. She spends most of her time playing at the jail with her husband Eddie Hurley who works for the sheriff. Thats where she gets her material the rest is in form of a press releases given to her by none other than Sheriff Ray.

You just don't like for it to be said out loud, fearing your reign might come to an end. The town is full of corruption..from our sheriff and all of his goons(the entire force), to our school board and to every other level of government in this town. If you have the nuts to stick up for this town you have got to be one of the elite around here because all of us normal people that can't afford to pay off our way through life in this town know the truth..Tazewell sucks!! Everything about this town sucks, especially people like you who have their noses straight up in the air and never take it down long enough to take a look around and see how far gone this town is! Plainly said or do I need to keep going?
I agree with this person, they tell the truth. I think we need term limits in the county.

This is what's wrong with claiborne county...you people on here talkin shit about other people...I bet none of you have contributed not one red cent or a minute of your time, for this town! As for the people who work at The Progress, they do their job, and they get their information from those of us who care about our town...not from people like you who have nothing better to do than sit and gossip on here.
If this county is SO bad....do us all a big favor...MOVE!

i may be a fool on some things, i know there is trouble everywhere.not just here.i been making it ok with the help of my neighbors and friends and family ,i am not rich and all that ,so u dont know, yes i live on faith something you sure can't take away .i am tooo polite to cuss and curse on here i have morals. if you don't like tazewell and aren't willing to stick around and help your town get better so that is you , just take care of yourself lock your doors keep yourself safe .because maybe noone will be there to save you in your time of need,maybe they will be saving someone else, i am saying it aloud i like my town ,so there ,and the newspaper,and one can read it for free at the library. i have no clue about what anyone does,it is none of my affair. i love the place i live i strugle and i survive .you have no clue about people like me ,cause i am one of a kind. me.im sure my shit stinks just like yours,

There is a famous baseball scout that writes articles for the Progress. He is very articulate and seems to be quite the literary genius. His column is full of true statements. We the citizens of Claiborne County should all strive to be more like him. He is under contract with the Atlanta Braves and is very successful. I believe everything he writes.
