'Rutherford' will begin Wednesday
'Tennessean' supplement will focus on local news

A new local news supplement of The Tennessean called ''Rutherford'' will make its debut Wednesday.

Rutherford County news, entertainment and sports will be the focus of the supplement, which will be similar to existing local news supplements Davidson A.M. and Williamson A.M.

Every Wednesday about 13,300 subscribers will receive the supplement with their regular Tennessean, and about 64,000 nonsubscribers will receive it by mail. On Sundays the supplement will be distributed to subscribers only.

The new supplement also will be available every Wednesday and Sunday with newspapers sold on newsstands throughout Rutherford County.

Rutherford will feature local news stories on education, entertainment, recreation and sports, community activities, growth issues in the region's fast-growing county and good things happening in the community.

All of the stories will have an ''intensely local'' news angle and will be designed to help Rutherford County residents connect with their community, said Leslie Giallombardo, publisher and president of The Tennessean.

''The No. 1 thing people want from their newspaper is more local news. They want to see themselves, and they want to see the people they know,'' Giallombardo said. ''We're really looking forward to being able to provide that.''
