seeks your help selecting top stories

Discussion set for Dec. 22

Staff report

The Pee Dee Post, still less than eight months old after being launched on April 28, seeks contributors to the conversation that will result in the Post‘s Stories of the Year.

This will be an informal discussion about the stories that meant the most to readers and the impact on the Richmond County area that took place in 2014.

To be considered for the five-person advisory committee, please send an email to and tell us why you’re one of the Post’s most loyal fans — and why the committee can’t meet without you. Send those letters of interest by 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 20, and include your name, town of residence and the best phone number at which you can be contacted. No phone calls, please.

The committee will meet just once — at 5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 22 at The Pee Dee Post office at 301 E. Washington St. in downtown Rockingham. Light refereshments will be served.

“This should be a lot of fun,” Spradlin said. “I’m looking forward to stimulating, passionate arguments about what should be the top stories.”
