Crossville told the story about what happened to one of White Counties citizens Nathan Chandler
(Q-ball)

News Channel 2 don't the story of the Tevebaughs dog that was shot while at a "doggie hotel" buy the owners son because he was mad at his mom.

NEITHER of these stories were reported in our, "news"paper.

How pathetic is it that you get more news on Topix than the Sparta Expositor.

I know a lot of people love to talk shit and bash people on here.. take a minute and go to www.spartaexpositor.com or spartnews or whatever and email them. Let them know that we are tired of their laziness. Bad reporting and ignoring news. They are partly responsible for a lot of the gossip that is spread on here.(I'm not talking about the, "what do you think about.. insert name here" issues) but actual news.

LET them know. If you don't get a response back. Stop subscribing. Tell friends and families to do the same. Subscribe to the Herald Citizen if you want Sparta news.. or the Crossville paper.

I'm hear to hate on them. Maybe they don't know that we expect more and just keeping things simple at the Expositor. But at least take to the time to demand an excuse of why they fail to not report

Thanks

They probably don't report the news because their reporters have the same grasp of English and grammar as you have.

We'd never be able to understand the story.

The Expositor has a bigger problem than English and grammar !

12 days until the biggest, most important mid-term election in our lifetime, and they have yet to publish a sample ballot !

GUESS WHAT ???

If the Sparta Expositor fails to publish a sample ballot in their next edition...

THE TEA PARTY WILL DO IT FOR THEM !!!

This is great info! All they know how to do is put the same pictures and stories of about 5 people in there. It would be great if we could get a new newspaper company to come in and report the NEWS!!!!

We had a couple of small good reporting news papers that were free. The Expositor ran them out of business with threats.

Those who advertised in those small papers were threatened by the expositor. So the small news papers had to quit publishing.
awful

David Smith needs to get in here and read the news. That's sorry as rat manure to threaten people who actually want to report news. If he can't do it, he needs to step aside and let someone who can do the job, do the job.

I haven`t bought the Sparta paper in years. The only thing they are concerned about printing is who died and who went to jail.

How do you get in contact with David Smith if he's the owner? Why would he hire some of the people there to begin with???? I don't think it's all the workers, just very bad reporters. It's amazing every election we have you can read the paper and tell who they are rooting for also and it's very sad to know you have to pay for obituaries! Hopefully someone can get us some more information.

I was glad when Suzanne Dickerson was fired. But this new guy is just as bad as her, when she ran the paper. I think it's time he's fired as well.

They only want to put in there what they want to. It would be nice if we had a paper in this county with honest reporters and knew what they were doing. The picture of the Christmas tree in the paper was a joke! I guess they had nothing better to do, the tree looks like it's going to fall over any day! I guess they think the city square is next to the Rockefeller Center!
