From the Publisher: Moving Ahead
As you are aware, the Covid-19 pandemic and shutdown of the economy have taken an enormous toll on businesses across the State. Newspapers also are a business, and we have seen a huge decline in the advertising revenues that support this newspaper.
Many publications in other communities have shut their doors or have been bought out by money oriented and unstable hedge funds and media conglomerates. Fortunately we are still paddling our own boat. But we certainly do face some financial challenges.
Like other businesses, we have to balance our books— money going out for expenses can’t be greater than money coming in from sales. So, we need to reduce our expenses, and in some ways change the way we do business.
Starting this week we will be refocusing our editorial content on key articles and columns, press releases, and other content contributed by local governments, school leaders such as coaches, and you, our readers. Please mail or email your submission to Senior Editor Kris Leonhardt at [email protected] for consideration in our online and/or print publications.
We ask that you continue to support our small yet essential newspaper. We will continue to try to give you as much timely and relevant information as possible within our available resources.
Stay safe and healthy.
