For and By the Community

Among many of the community's attractions, restaurants, and business's you're sure to find a free newspaper, centered around Liberty and it's surrounding towns. Simply named, The Liberty Leader offers an array of information; there are ads of local businesses littered throughout, with few articles in between.

Cluttered with basic grammatical and spelling errors, the first headline of this month's issue celebrates the 50th anniversary of Kidd's Drive In (although the restaurant itself has been around for 66 years). While I'm a fan of the restaurant, the article is hardly legible; it seems to be written by someone's grandmother, who just so happens to be suffering from dementia.

The beginning of the article - more than four errors in the first sentence.

Despite the first article being the worst written, you won't find anything more substantial, or better written. Still, I recommend you to take a look at the paper, here. I love the idea of there being a newspaper for Liberty, particularly if it's free. It's just so poorly executed. Embracing the personalistic nature of the paper is fine, writing the same three poorly written stories every month is not.

More importantly, the newspaper is a reflection of the town itself;  the newspaper itself states, "...By The Community And For The Community." Accordingly, the material resonates living in the past, refusing to move forward, and refusing to be open-minded. This is the underlying philosophy plaguing the town.

Albert Einstein once said, "If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got."
