Importance of a local newspaper

The recent letters to the Recorder condemning Greenfield government’ racism and lack of transparency in the Lunt property cleanup demonstrate the value of local newspapers. You would have never learned of these without a local newspaper, as well as student demonstrations, local school committee issues, and environment protection laws and regulations.  I value the businesses that continue to place ads to support the paper. 

I know that delivery has been a problem. Why not switch to an evening newspaper?  The e-edition can still be out in the morning however delivery could be later in the day, just a suggestion.
