A while back the Maryville Daily Times updated their website with some nice cosmetic improvements.

Now I wish they would add RSS feeds, at least for local news articles.

What we have now over there in the News-O-Rama column is a hack based on a Google News search turned into a dynamic RSS feed. It's ugly at best, and incomplete with incorrect headlines at worst.

It's not rocket science, or at least it shouldn't be if they have the right back end software.

If they need help, I recommend they get in touch with the guy who setup this website for a smaller local community newspaper. It's got all the latest bells and whistles, it's slick, and it's based on the latest state-of-the-art open source (and free) content management system.
