A "meet-and-greet" interview with the candidates running for the Ashe County Board of Education.

An update on the high profile murder of Diane Goss.

A story from our county attorney about the professional fate of our county manager.

Fake new? We beg to differ.

Indeed, these stories were some of the headlines of the Ashe Post & Times front page during the last week.

Giving you the real news you need to make decisions affecting the lives of you and your family every day is the focus of every journalist and every staff member of your hometown newspaper.

Yet, too often, your local media source gets lumped in with national players amid cries of fake news.

We at the Ashe Post & Times are not the enemy of the people. We are your neighbors, your relatives and the friends you see as we all travel about our community. What we write, report and advertise affects each member of our news organization as much as it does each reader.

We never lose sight of this, and we wanted to share this especially during this week, National Newspaper Week, because good, community journalism does matter — now more than ever.
