From the publisher: Real news, reported your local newspaper
I want to take a moment of your time to talk about our commitment to you.
We are here to tell the truth. Our news is for and about our local community, and we stand by it.
Every day, our editors and reporters show up at events all across the community.
We attend city and town council meetings, school board meetings, store openings, police and fire department calls, sports events – you name it and we probably are there.
We do this because we believe it is important that everyone who lives here knows what is going on.
Knowledge about events in our community, and the actions of our governmental leaders and organizations, is truly important for the healthy functioning of our democracy, because it gives us a rational voice for our choices as voters, consumers, and citizens.
This is not Fake News. This is Real News. It is vital to our community. We hope you will agree and support us in this effort.
Patrick J. Wood
