In the sacred tradition of American daily newspapers, passionately strives to report the news objectively, accurately, proportionately and aggressively. If any of these values is absent, we have failed a critical responsibility. Our central mission is to offer readers a provocatively stimulating menu of significant political and cultural community news and views five days a week. Every day we produce enterprising stories that seek to dig below and beyond the surface to more keenly place the daily stories – news and op-eds – in coherent context. In clearly labeled opinion pieces, we present strongly held views from across the political spectrum. The leadership of our newspaper – Ari L. Noonan and Frederik Sisa — represents muscular opinions from the right and the left. Dissenting views eagerly are invited, the better to refresh and to replenish a widely informed community via an open, fair-minded community newspaper.
