Nettleton School Paper Goes 100% Online

JONESBORO, AR - At Nettleton High School in east Jonesboro, the school newspaper isn't made out of paper anymore.

This year, students only get The Chieftan online.  Journalism teacher Dinah MCClurg says students liked reading the paper, but, like community newspapers nationwide, sales were declining.  She says it was logical to put the paper online because students use the Internet so much already.
