Top news stories in your local area?

Here are the top news stories in our local area right now, from the Watauga Democrat:


Five stories, all bad.

Police chase/crime.
Assault and theft/crime.

So you can understand maybe why people are so mad right now, and so afraid, and so worried.

But there is good news here, too. And lots of people doing great things.

Yet, none of it is in the paper right now.

As explained in the book, the media focus mostly on bad news, crime making up a significant portion of that. Apparently that is what sells, so they keep reporting it.

But I'm not buying it. So at least I am not part of the problem.
