The 1st Amendment needs a few more friends

By: 
NLJ Staff

We are serious about fulfilling our 1st Amendment obligation to provide the people of Newcastle and Weston County with a free and independent press, and proud to offer

comprehensive coverage of our area through a variety of online platforms that greatly expand access to the valuable content found in the pages of each week’s News Letter Journal.

In addition to our award-winning website newslj.com, we also offer free subscriptions to our weekly email newsletter NEWC Now, and invite readers to follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram). We have recently launched our own Youtube channel, and have begun publishing videos of important meetings and other
community events.

The vast majority of our online content — which includes polls, contests, podcasts, statewide news and links to other valuable
information — is available at no cost because we believe it is
important to make the benefits of local journalism available to all, including those who may not be able to afford a $50 per year subscription.

The changes in our industry that allow us to expand our coverage and make it available to more people than ever are certainly exciting, but they do come at a cost. They also come at a time when newspapers are receiving a fraction of the advertising and legal notice revenues that used to be the primary source of support for our mission.

We value our advertisers more than ever, and thank you for what you have done to support local
journalism. If you believe you can afford to help us more, please contact us at editor@newslj.com to ask about monthly sponsorship opportunities (in print and online) for you or your business.

Our subscribers are incredibly important too, and if you’re already a subscriber, we ask that you
consider increasing your support for your community newspaper by
purchasing an additional
subscription for a friend or
family member. 

The holidays are right around the corner, and a gift subscription to the News Letter Journal provides a weekly reminder to a loved that you were thinking of them. They get reminded every day if you upgrade to a print/digital combination for full access to newslj.com!

If you aren’t a subscriber or
advertiser, there is no better time to join those who have chosen to make that small $50 investment to help support strong local journalism in Weston County. The cost of your subscription — less than $5 per month ($3 for students/seniors) — supports our ability to provide you with a wealth of information about your community, and it also allows us to provide the majority of that information for FREE to community members who truly can’t afford
to help.

Regardless of your level of support, we are truly blessed by the relationship we enjoy with all of you — advertiser, subscriber, free reader — and grateful for the trust you’ve placed in us.
