A view from Piedmont

PIEDMONT-- A first for me today as I had a chance to drive north of Jacksonville, Ala. to the small community of Piedmont, Ala. The occasion for this trip was a class visit for the Knight Fellows in Community Journalism.

Not only was it a wonderful opportunity to see a community UP CLOSE, it was a chance to see the fall colors along Highway 21.

Consolidated Publishing recently purchased The Piedmont Journal and added it to the list week publications it prints at its Anniston facility. It also has a top-notch staff that is based in Jacksonville while they keep a strong presence IN the community.

Today we met some of the Piedmont Journal staff. I hope to visit again.
