Community misses landmark

June 8, 2006

Doerun - - People who live in Doerun are reacting to the aftermath of a landmark now destroyed.

At "A Taste of Home Restaurant", the fallen towers were the talk of the town today. Just about everyone who came in had something to say about them.

C.J. Oates was around when the WALB tower went up in the 50's. He says it brought name recognition to the small town.  

"We need to put them back up so we'll still be back on the map again. It means something. Means a lot to Doerun," he says.

"It was just a landmark, but not no more," says resident Gene Sellers.

A representative from the city hall office there says their phone has been ringing off the hook with people wanting to know how they can get the WALB signal.

Raycom Media, our parent company, is aware of the concerns and are trying to get things back to normal as soon as possible.
