Please post links to your local online newspapers with a brief statement of what that entity sees as the important news of the day.
The Austin American-Statesman has a story about investing in land, etc. around the new racetrack. None of the main news stories cover the crisis in the Middle East. click here.
This nation is finished. No one in leadership or media, both of which have a responsibility to the people, have any interest in the welfare of the people to inform them as to what is actually happening. Both have been subverted by evil forces which intend to enslave the people and are aiding and abetting that process.
Major volcanic eruption in Guatemala.
My local paper has local news as the top story. National and international news are covered in their respective sections.
Apparently we’re the drunkest county in the state.
The Kansas City Star phone ap has covered it thoroughly, in some ways better than my Fox News ap.

My local rag, the Salisbury Post, has a story about volunteers building an outside classroom for one of the over-crowded public middle schools. They have NOT put a single article up about Libya.
Globe & Mail: China's naval show of strength raises stakes in island dispute with Japan The Globe and Post are national papers while the Sun is focused on local issues.
Former Navy SEAL killed in Libya
In world news:
- A historic movie theater about to make a dramatic comeback.
- Longtime DFW radio and news personality dies (I have never heard of him.)
- Private developer interested in building communis— I mean, commuter rail line.
Blah, blah, blah, hollywood actor, blah, blah, blah, kitten in tree, blah, blah.....
Heavily armed militants used a protest of an anti-Islam film as a cover and may have had help from inside Libyan security in their deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate, a senior Libyan official said Thursday.
The violence across the heartland of the Arab Spring reaches far beyond the cries of anger against America and deep into one of the region's most high-stakes showdowns: ultraconservative Islamists seeking to challenge the new leadership struggling in Egypt and Libya.
A Pentagon agency that oversees surplus military goods has ordered the Pinal County Sheriff's Office to retrieve hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise it requisitioned and "loaned" to non-police organizations in violation of the program's rules.

Don’t read the local but I checked their website and found all their national news was linked to CNN.
Beside it is a picture of Vol fans and an article about ESPN Game Day's appearance in Knox Vegas.
My local paper headline says “Shortage of hay causes ranchers to sell off cattle.”

I don’t think that means while standing with a truck on each side...but it might knowing the folks there.

I attempted to post a thread to discuss the third story listed above, however, FR does not permit Poughkeepsie Journal stories due to complaints from the paper.
FWIW, the title in the third story was shortened from the original when I was preparing to post that thread at FR . . .
Local Muslims condemn force, killings in Libya'Protesters broke our commandments,' Islamic Association members say
PJ's 'journalist' du jour, Nina Schutzman quoted two local Muslim men who claimed there are Islamic commandments which were broken . It appears Nina couldn't be bothered to ask for specifics about which commandments they were referring to, leaving her readers to accept such nonsense as fact. So much for journalistic integrity.
Here's the only comment posted online in response to that article, thus far:
This is the kind of response from Muslims that we need to hear, that the Koran does not condone this and neither do they. As citizens residing here enjoying the freedoms and benefits the US offers (I assume they are citizens) thier loyalty is to the United States now, not the country of thier origin."
The Pok Journal's perpetuation of an intentionally ignorant narrative perpetuates-if-not-accelerates the alarming degree of danger this country and it's non-Muslim citizens are forced to endure here and abroad.

Embassies under siege as Arab violence spreads
The story was picked up from the New York Times.
The online edition promotes the #2 headline in the print edition to the lead story:
Corporate cash paid DNC's arena fee
The story is by Tim Funk of the Observer, and notes Obama's evidently broken pledge not to use corporate funds for the actual convention here in Charlotte.
The Observer leans left, and is often prone to headlines like "Banks hike fees; women and minorities suffer most." On this particular morning, however, I have no complaints about the lead headlines. Not to worry; I'm sure I'll find something to raise my blood pressure on their editorial page.

If you notice eight of the eighteen headlines are about the First Wookie and nothing about the Middle East.
The "Star" used to be somewhat right wing but now they are almost worthless.
