    Mike, you are so right. In the last several months, even if you did complain, the management's view on your complaint was pretty much, Who Cares, that is just one persons opinion. Hopefully, the new owners will see fit to restore COMMUNITY to "Community Newspapers"

    A good community newspaper can mean a lot to a community. But that newspaper needs to be fair and accurate. Ours in Williamston no longer fits that definition. The only way we can find out what is going on in the community is to read WITN;s blog.

    The Daily Rejector is the worst newspaper in circulation.

    Now when you buy your paper, the money will go to some fat cat in Key West, Florida. That helps NC's economy, doesn't it?

    The Enterprise has gone more than downhill...I think it is more like a landslide. Sad that we HAD a community newspaper for many, many years, but Cox took away the local "community ownership"

    I sure hope we see some changes in the rag. It has been all downhill lately. The newspaper has nothing new.

    Change in ownership, does that mean any real change at all? Since Cox took over the Enterprise in Martin County it has become been nothing but a mini Daily Reflector. They got rid of our local editor which was a major mistake. The Enterprise is no longer a community paper. Even if I did not agree with the past editor and her editorials all the time, atleast they dealt with Martin County issues. Even the Down East Magazine has gone downhill. If I wanted to read what was going on in Greenville or Rocky Mount I would buy the Daily Reflector because that is what our "local" (haha) paper is full of. The Washington Daily News has more Martin County news than the Enterprise. Maybe the change in ownership will bring back our local editor and she will help restore our community paper. If the Enterprise continues the way it is, I will not be renewing my subscription and from conversations with others in the community neither will they. New owners RESTORE OUR LOCAL IDENITY AND LOCAL EDITOR.
