All we need to know right there.

To be fair, the Citizen-Times is covering the proposed sale of National Forest Lands Yet, you'll notice, I suppose due to obvious local opposition, on this one, they managed to neuter their pro-administration slant just barely:

Land sale plan brings hope of protection, opportunity

The U.S. Forest Service has more than 200,000 comments to sort through, and Western North Carolina rangers have calls to take — some from landowners and some from developers.

The Forest Service is finding people have plenty to say about a proposal to sell public land to help cover costs of a rural schools program. Up to 300,000 acres of land could be at stake.

And also, to be fair, I've heard Asheville paper covered the Charles Taylor (NC-11)/Jack Abramoff bribery/donation scandal on the print edition. No idea about Hendersonville.

Do you think either of them would cover the event if Taylor murdered someone in broad daylight in Pack Square with a hundred policeman as witnesses. Maybe we can speculate what crime he could NOT get away with on Saturday morning funnies.

Now, I'm going to click to find out what happened to the $2,000 dog.
