Thank you for subscribing to your local newspaper

While our newspaper has had many names and leaders over the years, our goal to keep Central Iowa informed has not wavered. A building fire in the 1900s and a tornado hitting our building a few months ago did not stop us from getting the news out.

The strength of a newspaper goes hand in hand with the strength of a community.

This week we celebrate National Newspaper Week. We are proud to be a part of the community and love the work we get to do. Most importantly, we are thankful to our loyal readers.

Without subscribers we wouldn’t be able to celebrate National Newspaper week. Your support helps us keep the community informed about local government, crime, new businesses, health care, local sports, features on residents and community events. Your support captures our communities biggest moments through photos. Your support creates a platform for public discourse in the opinion section.

Your support documents history which will be valuable long past our lifetimes. Your support creates an important medium for local businesses to drive customer interest via advertising.

Without subscribers, we would cease to exist. Thank you for your loyalty –we hope you enjoy our service. As always, please reach out with feedback and ideas you have for us. We would love to hear from you.

To help us celebrate National Newspaper Week, we encourage you to support local journalism and urge others to do the same.
