Twin Reporters, Aug. 19, 1937
From The Courier, Aug 19, 1937
Cliffside, Aug.16. — Hello, friends. This writing business seems to be lagging behind just a little. Just writing news is a job in itself without having three or four more to keep up. But we are hoping the Cliffside News is kept up for the news that is sent from the surrounding towns is news to everybody.
Forest City attracts hundreds of people every Saturday night. We wonder why this is. Many reasons will answer that question, though. Extra attention is given to the traffic by the officers of Forest City as there seems to be quite a lot of confusion in getting through. Forest City is a favorite town of the Twin Reporters.
Fair time, and it is drawing nearer. We hope Rutherford Fair does credit to the county.
