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.
