After seeing last weeks Knox Focus, I was reminded that when Publisher Steve Hunley created the Focus he was motivated to be the opposite of Sandra Clark of the Halls Shopper. Clark has become an entity of the mega conglomerate E.W. Scripps Company. Clark is still the Publisher of the Halls Shopper.
When Hunley created the Focus he voiced frustration with Clark's constant promotion of her friend and former newspaper business partner County Commissioner Mary Lou Horner. Hunley continually voiced his intent to be "the positive news" and said that "if they say potato we will say potato. If they say tomato, we will say tomato".
Last week several weeks post March 6 election he featured School Board Member Mike McMillan. It seems that what Hunley first disliked in the Shopper News his publication has since become.
