Your appeal for "Reader Supported News" was well timed. We remembered seeing this message in a previous edition and discussing that we should pay for our copy of the Frontenac News (The News). But we did not proceed to do so.
In a world of diminishing locally owned and operated newspapers, the News has been an invaluable resource for our family for years. Whether it was local entertainment/community events, information on sports/art/music programs, legal/ business/ health/fitness resources, reports from local township councils, political commentaries (including Jeff's op eds), or the many thoughtful and educational articles on issues that affect our populace, there is something for everyone in this paper. We also look for local business ads in the News when we require services, as it is important to support local businesses.
The News also helps connect all our smaller communities while maintaining village identities, especially with the village reporting format.
We are especially appreciative of the News' commitment to sending papers to everyone free of charge, so that there is equal accessibility of information for all, but this incurs a significant cost.
The News is part of the glue that keeps us informed of and involved in our communities, and our family will be committing to supporting the News financially from now on. We encourage anyone who values this newspaper and can afford to pay for their copy to do so.
