South Taranaki Star - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

When I read the story about the Christ­mas house tour that will take place on De­cem­ber 2, I was a bit taken aback.

I hadn’t re­alised Christ­mas was so close. That’s what hap­pens when you are hav­ing fun, you lose track of time. And putting our your pa­per ev­ery week is fun. Jane and the team work re­ally hard to make sure they get your sto­ries told and your ad­ver­tis­ing in­ter­est­ing and in the pa­per.

Com­mu­nity papers are be­com­ing more im­por­tant as the on­line world en­croaches on what was pre­vi­ously the role of news­pa­pers. More and more read­ers are go­ing on­line for their news. Un­for­tu­nately, those peo­ple who get all their news on­line will strug­gle to find out whom to be­lieve.

The trou­ble is opin­ions are ev­ery­where be­cause ev­ery­body has one. Many opin­ions are illinformed but some peo­ple will be­lieve any­thing.

Your pa­per is the one that has your sto­ries from small suc­cesses to tall tri­umphs. We are there for you.
