  1. Brock, you should see if you can buy that "daily southerner" domain name.

    1. I talked to the manager as he was leaving for the last time and he said it was copyrighted. I mentioned that the town ought to buy it and continue and he said he thought someone would. You could use just Daily Southerner if it's not taken also.
