The Importance of a Local Newpaper


The media surrounds us, but does not inform us of the issues in our local communities. That is the job of a local newspaper, one that is owned and operated by citizens of the community in which they write about. Journalists who live locally have a stake in finding out the truth and understanding community issues, since it is where they live and raise their family. They will be more dedicated to the well being of the community than a writer that lives an hour away in the big city.
