Editor,

Without elaborating on the systematic genocide, the vicious cycle of homelessness and alcoholism and the undue suffering of our native people and the loss of our land since 1492, the countless termination of Indigenous Peoples lives, the rape of our women and the enslavement of everyone else still alive and the...

Madame G guide to the stars WEEK OF OCTOBER 6

E-mail Print PDF
The Full Moon lead to some interesting changes. Now, what will you do? You may discover it’s time to change and transform. You may even say: chance it. You’ll never know what will happen until it’s over and you’ll never know what stuff you’re made of until you try. Madame G recommends you get out there and just do it! It’s better to try and fail than not at all.

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re heading out on a new adventure. Instead of a burden, imagine you’re a pirate looking for treasure. You didn’t commit to a 30-year mortgage—you set off in uncharted territories. You may have years of payments ahead of you, but that’s life. You have to live somewhere. It...

Real newspapers, real news

E-mail Print PDF
“Real Newspapers, Real News” is the theme of this year’s National Newspaper Week (Oct. 1-7.) Indeed, there’s always been lots of “real”  at newspapers. Real stories, real journalism, real work, real deadlines, real honesty, real facts, real changes and, now, real threats.

Of course we hear lots these days about what’s not real— so-called fake news and alternative facts and the non-stop stream of internet-based noise, disruptions and...

Your local newspaper: The real deal

E-mail Print PDF
While no one should ever say “I know it’s real because I saw it on the internet,” everyone should be able to say, “I know it’s real. I read it in the newspaper.”

Real newspapers reporting real news have never been more important or more valuable to readers and communities.

This week, newspapers across the nation recognize National Newspaper Week and the theme — Real Newspapers…Real News — points to the importance of accurate reporting, watchdog journalism, strong editorials, comprehensive public notices and a free, open public forum that can be easily accessed by readers in more ways than ever before.

In print, on digital sites, via laptop, desktop and mobile...

Power of the press is in being the ‘Way to Know’ for news consumers

E-mail Print PDF
WASHINGTON – The power of the press rests in the ability of journalists to hold government accountable, to mobilize public opinion on matters that are important to individuals, communities or the nation, and to provide necessary information of value.

Notice in those words not a mention of celebrity content, mobile devices nor “aspirational” reportage that feels good without doing any good.

But also notice in those words the key to the future for newsrooms across the nation:  A visible role in the daily life of the nation rooted in real benefit and sustained credibility.

Newsprint may not be the medium-of-choice today for many readers, and perhaps certainly not the one for the...
