Tri-Town Times in Trouble

The editor of the Tri-Town Times was laid off on Oct. 28.  Matt Rittenhouse, the Tri-Town Times reporter who covers Sandown and Timberlane issues, quit shortly after.

It is with great sadness that I see the ills of the newspaper industry in general strike such an important and excellent publication as our own Tri-Town Times.  It is the little paper that could, though one wonders how it can now without its excellent editor, Leslie O’Donnell, and its hardworking local reporter.

We have no one to blame but ourselves.  According to the publisher, Deb Paul, who called me today, Sandown had just 25 paid subscribers. I’m proud to say I was among them.

A free society rests on the integrity and robustness of a free press. “You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.”

    I hope Tri Town News survives. It is a good local paper that actually delivers news.

    The format used for the current on line edition is not very good. The archived editions have the look and feel of the print edition and is very readable. I find myself reading the archived but not current news.
