To the editor,
With the closing of the Warroad Pioneer newspaper within the past year, I thought it would be a good opportunity to speak to the issue of our local hometown newspapers experiencing financial duress and survival. The staff of this paper are doing a commendable job week in and week out. Many people like myself place a high value on a printed version of the weekly news. I urge my fellow readers to make a semi-annual or annual donation in the envelope that comes attached to the newspaper or compose your own envelope and send a check. If we all do our part, we can ensure the lasting legacy of the valued hometown paper.
