There’s nothing like the gentle rustling sound of the pages of a newspaper, and there’s nothing like staying informed with local, regional and national news — with the confidence of knowing that the content is factual and not contaminated with opinion (except for the opinion pages, of course). I encourage you all to move forward into 2024 and rediscover the timeless pleasure of newsprint — an enduring tradition that marries the past, the present and the unfolding stories of tomorrow.
