Who We Are

Defining our purpose

The Community Information Services provider

We believe it is our function to provide the communities we serve with news of governmental, civic and educational institutions; coverage of the social doings and in-depth looks at individuals and events; notification of meetings and happenings; opinions of our staff and space for opinions of others on the important issues and problems facing the community. We also should be the informative marketplace for the products and services available within the community. We will use all appropriate and available means to disseminate information.As one of the few institutions that can reach all members of the community, we are obligated to perform our functions honestly, diligently and professionally, especially when one of our newspapers investigates or editorializes on controversial issues. Often the newspapers follow events and trends in the community; sometimes they should lead. We constantly strive for excellence and thoroughness.
