Reviving Local News: A Personal Journey

People engrossed in the pages of a newspaper, in a world increasingly dominated by the glare of screens, the allure of printed words offers a comforting weight, a tangible connection to the world. It’s a small observation that speaks volumes about the enduring value of reading and staying informed.

My own passion for local news has led me down a path filled with challenges and triumphs. There’s something about the local news that connects us, that makes us feel part of a larger community narrative. Yet, in recent times, I’ve noticed a gap—an absence of the stories that matter most to those around me. The “Daily” and “Herald” have been met with criticism for their lack of local content, and I’ve often been on the receiving end of such complaints. But let me be clear, this isn’t my doing. Instead, it’s a clarion call I cannot ignore.

The outcry for local news has not fallen on deaf ears. I’ve seen firsthand that not everyone is plugged into the relentless stream of social media. There’s a whole demographic yearning for the tactile experience of flipping through a newspaper, absorbing the events and tales of their immediate world. It’s this need I’ve set out to fill with the launch of a weekly “special edition.”

The response has been nothing short of inspiring. Each week, as I unveiled the latest issue, I am greeted with eager eyes and genuine appreciation. The feedback has been invaluable, shaping the publication into something that truly resonates. It’s a testament to the power of community and a reaffirmation of my belief in the importance of accessible local journalism.

Now, as I stand on the precipice of making this venture even more official, I am filled with a sense of purpose and determination. Paperwork has been meticulously prepared, and my next stride takes me to the courthouse. There, I will petition for a new decree under the auspices of the March 3rd, 1887 Newspaper Act—an act that underscores the significance of newspapers in our society.

This journey is more than just about starting a newspaper; it’s about rekindling a sense of community through shared stories and experiences. It’s about ensuring that everyone has access to news that hits close to home—news that informs, entertains, and above all, connects us.

As I move forward with this endeavor, I invite you to join me—not just as readers, but as active participants in a narrative that belongs to all of us. Let’s create a space where every voice is heard, and every story is given its due spotlight. Together, we can ensure that the value of reading local news remains an experience worth its weight in gold.

Your support is not just welcomed; it’s essential.

Thank you for being an integral part of this story.

I am stubborn enough to think we can do this,
when the corporate giants are failing.

Lastly, i can only do so much, if you know of or are involved in an organization that needs an event posted, this calendar is very helpful. https://www.siskiyou.news/post-an-event/
