Before newspapers, information was disseminated via breathless shouting from town criers or Nikola Tesla's mind-control machine. Learn what matters most without mad science with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a 13-week, Thursday–Sunday subscription to The Telegraph, plus three-month access to the E-Telegraph and an extra Sunday–issue delivery (a $74.60 value based on newsstand prices and online specials).
The Telegraph, currently celebrating its 185th anniversary, hits stoops and mailboxes with hard-hitting local, national, and world headlines. Give newspaper-fetching dogs a sense of pride with a midweek compilation of the latest stories in business, education, political, and sports, plus annual football previews and recaps for the in-depth knowledge needed to succeed in office pools and impromptu playground debates. The Telegraph deciphers daily happenings in Middle Georgia for more than 161,000 readers, covering local events such as the Cherry Blossom Festival and the Georgia National Fair. Article perusers can also take The Telegraph on the go with a three-month subscription to the paper's e-telegraph service, which lets subscribers keep up with current news trends while stranded on a WiFi–enabled desert island.
Weekend subscribers can read columnists including Ed Grisamore, who received a Will Rogers Humanitarian Award in 2010 for his coverage of Middle Georgia and his efforts to help the needy during the holiday season. Flip open the Friday and Sunday editions to get Grisamore’s unique perspective and manipulation of a 26-character alphabet.
As a daily repository of news and sports in the micro and macro for more than 185 years, The Telegraph keeps its finger on the pulse of local happenings to provide its readership with the widest scope of news possible. Divided into sections of news, sports, entertainment, opinion, and local happenings, the pages are anchored down by the words of inquisitive columnists, including Mercer University law professor Dave Oedel and Mark Ballard, a true Renaissance man with southern flair. Aside from the 30,000-strong list of paper subscribers, The Telegraph also attracts online news seekers, who can find new stories and archives via an e-telegraph subscription.
