I don’t know about you, but I miss my Monday paper. In order to have one, do I have to drive into town — because I live outside the city limits — to buy a paper from our competitor and pay $1? That is $4 per month. So I would be glad to pay say $1.50 more per month to have my News-Sentinel six days a week, but in order to make it a reality, does it take all subscribers to chip in?
You know the News-Sentinel has been a local icon for so many years, and the Weybret family has done so much for this community, sponsoring many local events, including the yearly performance of the Air Force Band, which my family has attended and enjoyed, and of which I have seen many of you in attendance. So the time has come for you and I to do our share. Sure, it is costing us a little more each month, but it is well worth it.
Think also of all the paper delivery persons who deliver your paper each day — no matter the weather — who count on the extra money. And all the employees who put their heart and soul into this paper to give us all the latest news deserve to make a decent living. This also goes for the Weybret family. They have given us so much and deserve more.
You may call Marty at 209-369-2761 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please give him your thoughts and input. Let us make it happen. Thank you.
