Congratulations on producing your first issue of the Kingsbury Journal. It is a fine-looking newspaper, and everyone who contributed to its production should be proud of the final product.
We were particularly impressed with how well you balanced the familiar elements found in the old publications with the new design and approach.
It is important for those in our communities to realize the power of their vote and voice is local. And that voice is weakened without a newspaper bringing the information they need.
We wish you continued success in this grand experiment in community journalism you have undertaken. Keep up the good work.
