The Brantley Enterprise has learned that Brantley Express publisher Mittie Vaughan has hired a Blackshear attorney to challenge the county’s selection of the Brantley Enterprise as the county’s legal organ.

We’d like to thank those who stood by us in the months leading up to this year’s decision. Now the focus must shift from the county officials to the Express.
