Viewpoint: Reject the Recession

The National News is filled with stories on the down economy and jobless rates on a daily basis.

Local businesses provide many jobs and are the backbone of our economy. That's why WDAM and 26 of those local merchants are taking steps to help the Pine Belt come together and reject the recession during this holiday season.

Each participating merchant has special discounts to help area shoppers save. Shoppers can also register for a chance to win a gift certificate from one of sponsors in the daily prize drawings beginning December 7th on News Seven Today.

You can also look for News Seven's Reject the Recession special reports that will give viewers some money saving tips for this shipping season. Remember, by shopping with local merchants, we keep the much needed sales tax dollars here to support our local government services.

Be sure to go to for a complete list of sponsor's discounts, giveaways and contest details.

We all can reject the recession…and help our entire community.
