Jack Mitchell, editor and publisher of The Norris Bulletin, will discuss publishing a community newspaper at the Monday, October 22, meeting of the Anderson County Democratic Women’s Club. The club will meet at 6 p.m. at The Other One, a deli at 178 Randolph Road in Grove Center in Oak Ridge.
Mitchell publishes the weekly Norris Bulletin, which is produced in both an e-mail version and printed version. The Bulletin, founded in 1948, celebrates its 70th birthday this year, a press release said.
A resident of Norris since 2004, Mitchell has been the editor and publisher of The Norris Bulletin since 2013. Initially, it was his intent to assume control of the community newspaper on an interim basis, when the previous owner was moving out of the country and had been unable to find anyone interested in purchasing the publication.
A native of West Tennessee, Mitchell is a graduate of Georgetown University School of Foreign Service. He also has a law degree from Vanderbilt University. In addition to practicing law for several years in Nashville, he served as general counsel for real estate development firms in North Carolina and South Carolina and has been involved in various real estate developments in Tennessee. He and his wife Loy Johnson own Loy Johnson Real Estate in Norris.
No reservations for the meeting are necessary. Those attending may order from the menu, the press release said. For more information, send an email to Ann Mostoller at [email protected] or call Mary Matheny at (865) 483-8937.
