I always say the same thing — the strongest communities have a local newspaper within their borders. And it’s the people of those communities who make it all work. We write the news and features about you, and for you. You support the businesses advertising within our pages, and it all goes ‘round and ‘round for the benefit of all.
It’s a blueprint for community success that had been working well for a long, long time before the internet entered the picture. Then of course, the promises of “the new way” turned everyone toward the internet, which, to this day, still doesn’t work for local, community newspapers. Newspapers are still continuing to close down across the country.
But there is some hope on the horizon.
