Our correspond00;,ots thuts, june 9 From time to time we in the newspaper business like to toot our own horn. We have some people who contribute to the news columns of our paper that deserve special recognition once in a while. Our rural correspondents are volunteers who work for nothing but the satisfaction of keeping their neighbors informed, whether it be about who was visiting last week or details of a hard news event we in Glenville sometimes miss. In this week's issue we have two examples of our correspondents being on top of breaking news in their community. Tanner News Correspondent Irene Hogue brought us details of a wreck on Trace Fork involving Rev. Ronzel Roberts and Normantown News Correspondent Nedra Alltop recounted the facts of a robbery at the home of Audy Turner. Some city readers or out-of-towners may laugh at some of the "gossip" our correspondents report, but such news is as important to a country weekly as national press wires are to the big city daily newspapers. These columns help set a "down-home" tone for our newspaper and it's the home town news that gives weekly newspapers their appeal. If you have an item of interest to the community remember to call the correspondent in your area. They are: Irene Hogue-Tanner; Mary Burton-Conings, Troy; Thelma Shackleford-Cox's Mill, Nedra Alltop-Normantown; Hazel Flint-Rocky Fork, Orlando; Audrey Conrad-Sand Fork and Marcella Luzader-Dusk Camp.
