Harnett County http://wunc.org en Honoring Hoover Adams http://wunc.org/post/honoring-hoover-adams <p>In 1950, World War II veteran Hoover Adams scored a $15,000 loan from his father-in-law to start a newspaper in Dunn, North Carolina.&nbsp; He called it <a href="http://www.mydailyrecord.com/ee/dunndailyrecord/index.php">The Daily Record</a> and from the start, the paper’s mission was to feature hyperlocal coverage of Harnett County. Church meetings, civic club activities and hog killings took precedence over political elections, plane crashes and national events that happened hundred of miles away from the paper’s home base. Adams’ news model was a success. Thu, 16 Aug 2012 15:11:00 +0000 Frank Stasio & Lindsay Foster Thomas 4048 at http://wunc.org
