Top Stories of 2019 from online Tyler Paper readers
The following story (in part) appeared in the January 1st copy of the Tyler Morning Telegraph:
“There were stories that warmed your heart, that told the story of fantastic finishes and honored long-time residents who retired or passed away. There were well-read stories of death, crime, destruction and intense life-or-death and death sentence trials. These were among the most-read stories by 12.3 million visitors to tylerpaper.com during 2019.
Then there was Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service writer Greg Grant who penned “Crape myrtles do not need pruning.” In just 11 paragraphs, Grant, the Smith County horticulturist, earned the No. 1 story of the year according to our analytics.
And it wasn’t even close. The rose is the national flower, Tyler is the Rose Capital of the World, so there is no shame in our newsroom having a contributing writer take the top spot with a horticulture article.”
And the story goes on with more information about other stories, but this is the important part for the gardeners among us and for Greg …..congratulations Greg!
