Joplin R-8, Carthage R-9 lawsuits top Turner Report/Inside Joplin posts

Two lawsuits against Jasper County school districts were the most visited posts this week on the Turner Report, but the most surprising one to make the list was one that made the top 10 in March and for some reason drew a lot of traffic earlier this week.

Coming in at number seven, former Carthage resident Paul Wilson writes about the damage GateHouse Media has done to the Carthage Press. His post was written shortly after it was revealed that the Press would be trimmed to one edition per week and long time reporter Rebecca Haines was losing her job.

The top posts of the week and links to them are featured below:
