"How do you get news items published in the newspaper?" asked one of the ladies attending the meeting. The question startled us because we keep asking ourselves the same question in reverse. "How can we get more news about local people in the newspaper?" The obvious answer is that if more people would bring us more news there would he more in the newspaper. Local news is the life blood of the small town newspaper. It is our reason for existing. The weekly newspaper is the last intimate llnk between a citizen and his immediate neighbor and the local government which has the closest and most meaningful effect on his life. An editor has the responsi- bility to keep readers informed about decisions made on local governmental their the health - and ed of their families, and the quality of their immediate environment and life styles. If he or she is conscien- tious- and our editor is gathering just the informa- tion is a full time job. The economics of a small town newspaper are such that we cannot afford to hire a large staff of reporters to scour the county in search of news. We must rely mostly on our readers bringing us news about births, anniversaries, marriages, deaths, church activities, picnics, social events, and meetings. We want your news and we value it highly. We place no arbitrary judgements on news items because we think I Miscellaneous Close Out Sale Surplus Equipment Fumiture& Mlsc, 1971 - 12' Travel Trailer Shopmade 20' Float 12' Tilt Trailer w/wind 1973 AMC Gremlin G.E.

If you read about the same people frequently in our pages, there's a very good reason for the publicity we give them. Either they are active in the community and are doing newsworthy things or they are taking the time to bring us their news. You can do the same and we hope you will. At the same time if you bring us a news item and we don't print it, don't think we're discriminating against you or that we are not interested in your contribu- tion. Sometimes we don't have enough room to print all the news we receive. In order for a newspaper to continue publishing it must have advertisers. The ads you see in this pape? pay for our printing costs, the salaries of our staff, and our operating expenses. The more advertising we have the more pages we can print and the more news we can publish. Bring us your news and patronize the local merchants and business people whose advertising makes it possible to keep you informed about what is going on in your community. And. incidental- ly, tell the advertisers occasionally that you saw their ads in this newspaper and you appreciate the service they are rendering to the community. Help us to help them to help you! Also, friends, we welcome suggestions and helpful criticism about what we can do to make this a better newspaper, Dropus a note, call us on the phone, or stop by and have a cup of coffee and let's talk about it. We hope that you will work with us to ensure that this newspaper is your newspaper and contains the information you need and the news you want to read. to the editor To the Editor: Dear Mr. Herline, I am writing this letter to let you know 'that if no else reads and enjoys your article "From This Corner," I do, and especially the one in last week's paper about your daughter. I believe you expressed the sentiments of other fathers who have daughters. There is something special between fathers and daughters. I know for we have one daughter who is now married and has given us two precious grand- children, but there are times when she is still Daddy's little girl, which is as should be. Again, I say I enjoyed your article and will be looking forward to the next one.

(Answer: Admiral Byrd) HARRIS INSURANCE AGENCY 489.1858 701 N.TERRY m It saved TPI., customers more than $81 mtIlion last year. HERE'S HOW For many years, natural gas was the only fuel used to produce electricity at Texas Power & Light Company generating plants. It was plentiful and cheap But in recent years uncertain supplies and drastically rising costs of gas have focused attenhon on readily available, lower-cost lignite coal. tn the late 1960's. TP&L and two affiliated Texas electric companies began a massive program to reduce their dependency on gas by constructing otants to use lignite. The first plant was placed in operation in 1971 and another in 1974. Others are. under construction and 13etng planned. During 1976. nearly one-third of the electric power which TP&L supplied to ts customers was produced at lignite-fueled plants and resulted in customer sawngs of more than $81 million. The price of electricity must continue to go up. however, because of the high cost of building new plants and other effects of inflation. But as TP&L generates more and more electricity with lignite coat. the increase in price will be many millions of dollars tess than if that electricity were generated with natural gas, _L II II'XAS I)WER & IJ(;HI (]()MPANY A tax-paying, investor-owned electric utility [ FARMERS & SUPPLY FEED.SEED.FERTILIZER Call 'Collect 214-396-2881 or CUSTOM FERTILIZER SPREADING Kenneth Lewis West Owner Kerens, I everybody's buzzin about gE THE WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM ON SOUND PRINCIPLES OF AND PROPER EATING . . . .
