I just saw this little article: http://www.timesdaily.com/opin...46-10604b9f6eda.html
It states the TD has just dramatically improved its format. I can count at least three "upgrades" since April 2012, and I'm not sure any were improvements. In fact, some older stories in the archives are gone forever.
I'm with RP about online sites. JMHO, with which we know Best and Semi disagree, but here's a rundown:
Shoals Insider--Very little new content and then only Fed. press releases. Not worth it.
Quad-Cities Daily--Births, deaths, and more local, esp. Colbert County. All the arrest reports you could want plus original pics of almost any event, free to download.
Pen N Sword--Covers five local counties and has background stories on almost any local crimes or criminals. Also has detailed "Most Wanted" section and one on "Missing Persons."
