Tarboro NC: Daily Southerner Newspaper Shut Down On Friday May 30, 2014 No More Papers

The Daily Southerner Newspaper last day was yesterday Friday May 30, 2014. This is going to be interesting because there will be a lot of meetings in the Tarboro area, school board, county commissioners and other will now have to be covered by the Rocky Mount Telegram alone. I believe the Southerner did a more thorough reporting on the news in the Tarboro area.

TARBORO — A Sept. 12, 2013, story published on the website and on the front page of The Daily Southerner about the review and analysis of travel and expense records from July 2006 to June 2011 of former Town Manager Sam Noble incorrectly characterized the conclusion of a report produced by Jackson Investigations and provided to the Tarboro Town Council. The headline should have read, “Report questions purchases by Noble”. The report did not conclude that Noble misappropriated funds. We apologize for the error. (More)
