    Trevor Weeding • Disclaimer: I’m stealing one of my boss’s oft-used pieces of wisdom here; although I wish I’d been the one to originally express this though. :) “Community newspapers are a community having a conversation with itself.”

    They are not just ‘important’ – they are a vital part of the communities they serve. Community newspapers, I believe, have often unwittingly tried to define the community for themselves, generally using their distribution footprint as the definition of the local community. In reality, most community newspapers will serve multiple communities, defined by a range of factors (Municipal boundaries, suburban boundaries, ethnic backgrounds, etc).

    Community newspapers matter because they give each of these communities an opportunity to talk amongst themselves and to each other. They inform, entertain and educate their readers and, in doing so, provide communities with their voice.
