Such as the Auburn Journal (front-page headline one day last week: “Highway 49 set for upgrade: two new stoplights, bike lanes on horizon”) of Auburn, Calif. (population 13,963). Or the Dothan Eagle (“Hopes high for 2017 local peanut harvest”) of Dothan, Ala. (pop. 65,496). Or the Herald & Review (“Schools fret over funding”) of Decatur, Ill. (pop. 76,122). Or The Telegraph (“Col. Drew takes command of 78th airbase wing at Robins”) of Macon, Ga. (pop. 92,582). Or the Bozeman Daily Chronicle (“State approves exploratory drilling near Yellowstone”) of Bozeman, Mont. (pop. 45,250). Or the Arizona Daily Star (“Football field at Tucson High is off-limits after flooding”).
