The Joplin Globe released a bulletin moments ago about the sale of Loma Linda Country Club to Bobby and Amy Landis of Joplin, scoring a beat on the new Joplin Daily in the breaking news competition.
The scoop was a follow-up to a regional bulletin that ran earlier today about the resignation of the entire Galena, Kan. Police Department. Of course, the Daily is not competing against the Globe for regional readers, but the new approach to the website is certain to draw more visitors.
The Daily meanwhile may have something up its sleeve, but it has not been showing on the website. Some material has been updated, particularly sports, but the new publication has not followed its initial success on Sunday with a string of scoops.
