  1. Shut down because someone in power hates pot.

  2. Scottie Meyers here from the, meh, now defunct Two Rivers Tribune. The paper’s email account has been shut down. Anyone wanting to leave an email for the editor can do so at this address:

    We are asking everyone to please join the Facebook group ‘I Support the Two Rivers Tribune.’ There you can find more information about the situation as it unfolds. Much appreciated & take care.

    Should have paid more attention to the party line. They would have found the fund to keep you open.

    Although I’m all for free speach, it was in poor taste to publish an interview with a wanted murderer. Jason Hunsucker should be brought to justice, and if the paper had a face-to-face with him, then someone there should be arrested for aiding and abetting a criminal.
