Have you ever heard of Parkour? It is a French sport that is actually played right here in Macon County. On March 4, Reporter Diedre Wilson wrote about the story, which was illustrated by Photographer Steve Morris. A fascinating story about a foreign sport/activity played right here in our parks.
Wilson also wrote a touching story - one that generated tremendous response - on the 68th anniversary of Earl and Myrtle Ford.
There was more in March. We reported on many things, including, but not limited to:
My recently completed evaluation of March's print editions (our next edition is April 1) reveal some stats. In March, we published:
There's more of course. We provided you with tons of local advertising, including 30 inserts or circulars from great local businesses like Hometown Foods, DT McCall's & Sons, Gross Appliance, and Gene Carman Real Estate and Auctions as well as companies like Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid and Freds, among others. Included among this was over $600 in coupons that not only save you money, but help you help local businesses.
We also gave you four issues of the very popular magazine American Profile.
As I mentioned when talking about February, you get all this and more for only $2 - the cost of four issues. The cost is even less with your $20 subscription.
Not a bad value. Not a bad value at all!
We published far more on our website, www.maconcountytimes.com, and we'll provide some statistics on that when March is complete.
