What are you talking about, old paper use to run our local obituaries for free. Now they want to charge outrageous fee to family to run them. And did you notice, they don't even put marriage license in paper anymore & I havent noticed property transfers either. Knoxville Sentinel runs births, divorces, & lots of other public records. All we get is sports, sports & more sports. Now that the fair is here we will get 3 to 4 weeks of fair pictures (gag) that is what happened last year!

It costs $100.00 to put an obiturary in the claiborne progress. I know this because i lost my mother last year and i had to pay it for it to be published. It was an ordinary obit. no pic. Same as everyone else. Explain that to me.....if you have a reasonable explanation. And when u do, please explain to me how much the schools have to pay for their 5-10 pages of pictures.

As for records on who got a speeding/seat belt ticket DUI ect. Glad they are gone. All of that was BS anyway. The cover story happening in Granger Co. Now that is crazy. It's called the "Claiborne" Progress for a reason. I agree, I couldn't care less about high school and LMU sports.

I for one liked all the BS. It's what a
local newspaper is all about. I don't
like all the sports either but i can live
with it because it is part of the community.
But where is the local news? We don't have
any? Heartland filed for chapter 11 in 09
and was controlled by it's creditors in 2010.
There has been 2 regional editors in the
last 6 months. Gould was appointed 6 months
ago and Debbie Caldwell in May of 2012. Ms
Caldwell is an award winning reporter and
editor of the Harlan paper. Now she is editor
for Claiborne,Middlesboro and Harlan. We know
why all the LMU news. Mrs Burchett-Anders old
school? All the Ky news? Mrs Caldwell?

A newspaper is a business. That is apparently news to some people. They have to make money to stay in business. Yes, if true,$100 seems a lot for an obit to be put in the paper, but if people don't want to have it in the paper, they don't have to. The choice is theirs. The local employees of the Progress do not set the fees that are charged. People at corporate headquarters in a state that is far, far away from here do that. Soooo, I don't think your complaining on here is going to have any effect at all on what is or is not put in the Progress and how much they charge for anything.

I hope that this woman has been terminated by this newspaper. She was arrested for theft identity over a month ago. Karma has a way of biting those who screw over innocent people.

. Miss Ander's or the publication,terminated Cindy Sharp a convicted felon from her employment at the Claiborne Progress and Cindy lost her lawsuit against the paper for her dismissal... This paper is about useless on reporting to the people about activities that happen in our judicial system. I wonder why?

Did you read about McDonalds resturant owner Lynn Jimison's daughter being arrested in tazewell for drugs and 23 stolen four wheelers and nothing about it in the paper. It may be a rich thing? You tell me and other citizens when is she going to trial All the poor people's names appear in the records but not 'certain' individuals is the paper and judicial system bias against our poorest citizens? Are there two different justice's, one for the wealthy and one for the poor. With the wealthy getting by with murder so to speak. And poor paying for their crime for the rest of their life no matter how petty their crime.. Crooked Judges, Lawyers And law enforcement are a abomination to our county and country

. It was in the paper. David Ray's dept was the one arresting her and her boyfriend and I bet she appeared or her lawyer before Mr. Estep and now no record of this happening. Cheeks was known for records vanishing .. Only in Claiborne County,where the wealthy can dominate our justice system. Keep seraching I guarantee there's a copy of her crime some where
