Try a couple papers on us; and then tell us what you think
We are all in this together.
Without your support, there would be no local newspaper. And without this paper, a vital link that helps bonds our community would be missing.
While some daily newspapers across the nation are shrinking or going out of business, we are happy to report that this newspaper is alive and well. We aren’t going anywhere.
But we don’t take our good fortune for granted. Loyal readers and advertisers are essential to our success.
The Feather Publishing team strives to improve the quality of your local paper every week. We are pretty proud of what we have accomplished. And we are excited about the direction we are heading.
We want everyone in the county to see what their newspaper has to offer — what they might be missing.
That’s why Feather Publishing is reaching out to all Plumas County residents in the coming weeks with a special promotion. Soon, everyone will have a chance to sample this paper for free. You don’t need to sign up for anything to get your complimentary paper — it will arrive in the mail.
Here are the respective mailing dates you can expect to receive a copy of our paper that serves that area:
Indian Valley Record: today, March 19
Feather River Bulletin: March 26, April 2
Portola Reporter: April 16, 23
Chester Progressive: May 7, 14
If you like what you see — and we think you will — we are offering you a chance to subscribe to the paper for half the regular price. To show our appreciation for those who become subscribers, everyone who takes advantage of the offer will also get a free classified ad. The combination of the half-price subscription and the ad essentially makes the paper free. Our regular subscribers are also welcome to take advantage of this special offer — and this special price is good for a one- or two-year subscription.
The deal is even more attractive when you consider just how much you can save weekly by taking advantage of all the advertised specials from your local merchants, not to mention the terrific bargains in our classified section. Your newspaper is a shoppers’ paradise!
We also want you to know we are rededicating our effort to bring you a better product.
We plan to feature more in-depth stories about people and events in our community. In addition to reporting the “who, what, when and where,” we want to tell you “why” a story matters. Why you should care.
You can expect to see more important information presented in an easy-to-read format. More photos, more graphics, more key pieces of information highlighted apart from the story itself.
Expect to read more names of people you might know, see more pictures of people you might recognize. Perhaps even a story about … you. Do you have a story to tell? We want to help you tell it.
We are constantly evolving, trying to come up with new and better ways to deliver the news you care about. We have ideas, but we are always looking for more.
That’s where you come in.
Take a long, hard look at the paper in your mailbox. Call or email and tell us what you think. We sincerely encourage your feedback. Sure, we like to hear what we are doing right. But, more importantly, what are we missing? What about your community would you like to know?
We have said this before, and we still believe it: This is your newspaper. We are merely the caretakers.
