Thanks for reporting on tough issues

Written by 

To The Editor:

I want to commend The Smoky Mountain News for reporting on issues that are not popular. The Haywood Emergency Physician’s case took courage to write about a few years back and the paper risked hard-to-earn cash dollars from advertisements. The paper did lose those dollars and it persevered. I hope the new leaders at Haywood Regional Medical Center will take note and continue to advertise in The Smoky Mountain News.

In a small town where all enjoy the warmth and kindness of a community there is also the bad entangled with good. We all live with that in our lives. As we seek to be better citizens in our community, it is important to know we have a newspaper willing to shine the light on some of the dark or confusing places. Thank you Smoky Mountain News.

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
