The panelists discuss the changes coming to the two largest newspapers in Lee County.
Mississippi Valley Media says the Daily Gate City and the Daily Democrat will publish four days per week. A shopper-style paper with news mixed in will be published the fifth day. The changes go into effect May 6.
Nearly two months after receiving a hoax 911 call, Macomb police released a recording of the call. Police made the audio available in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed last week by Tri States Public Radio.
The recording lasts less than two minutes. In it, the caller asks the 911 dispatcher to send a squad car to 509 Murray. “This guy has a gun on us. He says we can’t leave.”
