What I would like to know is...WHY IN THE HELL DOES IT COST $100.00 TO PUT AN OBITURARY(however its spelled) IN THE CLAIBORNE PROGRESS?? My Aunt passed away last year and didn't have insurance. We couldn't even let friends and family know in the public because of this ridiculous fee! It's disgusting for them to profit from the lose of others. How much does LMU and all the sports crap pay for there 10 pages?? YOU MAKE ME SICK BECAUSE OF THIS VERY FACT!! Don't you all think families have lost enough in a death and you CLAIBORNE PROGRESS benifit $100.00 ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS to print it!!! PATHETIC AND DISGUSTING

I agree with you. $100 is outrageous for a small, once a week newspaper. When my mom passed away we had it put in the news sentinel and citizen tribune. Those come out daily. Why pay an extra $100 for people to find out the next week....ridiculous. It should be a common courtesy to list obituaries.

Have you checked the list of cemeteries. There
is just shy of 200 listed. I'm sure some have
been missed. Maybe this one is not listed. What
is the name of it? I'm sure the people that keep
these records would love to here about it.

Reply to "Listed",,no sir, I haven't checked the list of cemeteries there,,I went there to help my friend, Mr. Snuffer, clean this one up and it was extremely bad, but after 6 days and a couple of pieces of heavy equiptment, it looks like a cemetery again. I'm told this one is called the "Lee" cemetery and I'm pretty sure that it is indeed not listed, and there is another cemetery that is called the "Lee" cemetery and that one is probably listed. The one we cleaned up is mostly filled with people who lived in the 17 and 1800's. The most recent grave we could identify is a 4 month old baby who lived and died in 1892. Her marker is very legible. Says "E Pearl", Daughter of J.D and M.E Templin, July 26-Nov.27, 1892. At the bottom of the stone, it reads "In Heaven There is One Angel More". I told my friend that one little girl's grave made all the work I've done here very worthwhile. We still need help finishing the fence and help paying the landowner's caretakers a yearly fee to keep it cleaned and mowed. I'm sure these brave pioneers who are sleeping here have many kinfolk in the area, and they deserve to be remembered and to have their graves cared for. Any help would be appreciated. Physical and/or finantial. Thanks for your interest.

Yes it is a shame that we are now having to pay $1.00 for a newspaper that has very little news all it has now is sports the whole second part is sports and now the first half is putting sports in it sure some sports are fine but come on People buy the paper for the news not all sports
Wait till you see this week. 1/3 of the front page is sports.
But these little boys will cherish their front page coverage
forever! And their families will buy lots of papers for their
scrapbooks. All the sports is just good business. And the $1.00
for a paper? Double the price? Loose half your customers? Still
make the same money for 50% fewer paper? Just good business!!
good grief

Ever since they hired Cindy Sharp at the newspaper it has gone to the dogs...She is a convicted felon, eluding police/drug possession/ex-convict from Kentucky/ Felonies and probation from Virginia...Also probably W/O question the worse mother in the world....I have no ideal why a newspaper would hire someone of the caliber to work with the public..

It's the marissa anders show folks. If it isn't politically correct or watered down you won't see it.

Heartland publications did own it. Write letters

If you really want to make them uncomfortable look at all the ads every week. Those are the people who really support it. When you go in those businesses tell them how you feel. Get them to stop throwing that advertising money at the progress and watch how fast things change

Sorry to say most of you have no idea what you are talking about....

I've worked in the newspaper biz for over 15 years for 3 different papers in 3 different counties.. It's the same with every single paper.. NOBODY is ever happy or satisfied...
One day "people" want more sports.. the next they don't.... Same with wrecks, police records, etc...

The PROGRESS is NOT locally owned... It is owned by people that have no idea what this county wants or needs..... These people are the ones that make up the prices for EVERYTHING, NOT anyone that locally works at the paper.....

100 dollars for a obit.. Had to be a pretty long obit... Funeral Homes are the only place that can send obits to the paper.... They should straight up tell you it cost so much per column inch..

Pictures lost... you bet it happens alot... get a copy made before taking it to the paper.. Because the picture does NOT always stay at the Progress. They have to send them sometimes to a whole other state.. And yes pictures are NOT put in the paper unless paid for in full.. So stop sending in your pictures without payment and then expect to pick them up weeks and sometimes months later...

Dave Chesney paper. give me a BREAK.. not so long ago it was a Eddie Shoffener paper. a David Ray paper.... Well it's NOT. It's a owners up NORTH paper...

People call to complain and talk with such rudeness and filth I'm surprized they even still have a real person that answers the phone.

And then not to mention.. PEOPLE don't get it.. a newspaper is like a ten thousand piece puzzle to be put together in 2 days times... So go ahead try to do that. Don't forget to add all the rude phone calls about your paper, all the people not meeting the DEADLINES for bringing stuff in, etc..

Marissa Anders is a great person. and does her job the best that the "owners" will let her..

BLAH blah blah.. complain complain.. that is all us HUMANS ever do.... It's sad...

Does Marissa Anders hire convicted felons to work with the public? I think the people of Claiborne County need to know a persons public record......

I just want to second that Marissa Anders does the best she can within the guidelines she has to respect. She has always been very responsive and kind when we have dealt with her.

Well I can for sure say she DOESN'T hire convicted felons.... She does not do the hiring.... The GM in Middlesboro at the Daily News does that..I do know that when I worked there, NO convicted felons worked there....

What kills me about the progress is how only those children with the right last names get the most press when it comes to sports. Whatever happened to giving people credit for a job well done no matter what their last name is;just saying.
