SMN invites our readers to subscribe to the newsletter by entering your email into the box below this story. The newsletter will include stories that didn't make the Wednesday paper, archived stories you might have missed and events you'll want to know about before you plan for the weekend.
"The Smoky Mountain News publishes every Wednesday, and we update our website (www.smokymountainnews.com) and our social media platforms throughout the week when important news breaks," said SMN Publisher/Editor Scott McLeod. "If you’re like me, though, sometimes you’re just too busy to stay caught up. So we figured a late-week update along with a weekend planner for some of the region’s best arts and outdoors happenings might be a useful find in your Friday morning inbox. We’re also including some stories you may have missed in the SMN weekly along with something interesting from our archives."
