Daily Independent

I was just sitting here reading today's Branson Daily Independent when I was reminded of one of my very first posts on this site about nine months ago. I had posted how glad I was that Branson had this little rag that was free in more ways than one. In a time when printed publications are dropping like Arkansas blackbirds, I was wondering if anyone else appreciated what these folks were doing? I can't imagine it's easy to sell enough advertising to make a staff rich doing what they do.

I love The Independent...I just wish I could find it somewhere besides my occasional visits to Mickey D's.

I enjoy reading the Independent when I am in Branson but I find it difficult to find a copy. When I find one of their paper boxes, it is usually empty. The last time I spent the night in Branson I was able to get one at the motel.

Books-A-Million did have them on their newspaper stand, in the cafe...don't know if they still do. They didn't seem to disappear as fast, there. Casey's has them but you'd better get them the first day they come out. They go, fast!

I am assuming their Classifieds are more reasonable than the outrageous rates the real newspaper charges.

The Daily Independent is the REAL newspaper to me.
