Congratulations on your 35th Anniversary! How fortunate we are to live in one of the few remaining free societies, with a wealth of information sources available. Sadly, most American cities, suburbs and small towns are down to one local daily or weekly newspaper.
Newspapers and magazines have to deal with increasing costs for newsprint, delivery and distribution along with reduced advertising revenues and declining readership due to competition from the internet and other new information sources.
Queens residents have a number of daily newspapers to select from including the Daily News, Post, Times, Newsday, USA Today and Wall Street Journal, along with freebies such as AM New York and Metro New York. Decades ago we had our own daily Long Island Star Journal and Long Island Press.
Daily newspapers concentrate on international, Washington, Albany, City Hall, business and sports stories. They have few reporters assigned to cover local neighborhood news. As a result, daily newspapers miss significant news and political stories from local Queens neighborhoods.
Weekly newspapers such as our own Queens Chronicle and others fill the void for coverage of local community news. We are blessed with many weekly papers to select from besides our own Queens Chronicle. These competitors include the Queens Courier, Queens Gazette, Queens Tribune, Queens Examiner, Times, Times Ledger chain, TimesNewsweekly, Ridgewood Times, Forum and The Wave.
I’ve been grateful all this time that the Queens Chronicle has afforded me the opportunity to express my views via letters to the editor, along with others who may have different opinions on the issues. Thanks to you, an ordinary citizen like me has the freedom to comment on the actions and legislation of various elected officials. Public officials use taxpayers dollars on a regular basis to promote their views via mass mailings of newsletters, news releases, letters to the editor and guest columns. In many cases, they are ghost written by campaign or office staffers paid for by taxpayers on public time. Ordinary citizens like me only have the limited ability to write when we can to find the time.
We need to continue supporting all our weekly community newspapers. Patronize their advertisers; they provide the necessary revenues to help keep them in business. Let them know you saw their ad. This helps keep our neighbors employed and the local economy growing. In the marketplace of ideas, let us hope there continues to be room for everyone, including the Queens Chronicle and many others.
