Letter: Reader dislikes story placement

How sad our “local” paper chose to headline on front page top fold the fall of a local man and his actions over the celebration of a man of great community service.

Mr. Jim Atchley (no relation) was such a large and committed member of Sevier County, helping anyone and everyone yet at a time when our community should be celebrating his faithful life and many years of giving, you chose to put him second and use a negative headline to sell papers (Feb. 18, page 1).

This is not the first and will not be the last time your profit margin is first and foremost.
