This is National Newspaper Week

Did you read about the annual fall flea market at the Old Court House Museum this past weekend? Or did you read about the Vicksburg YMCA planning an expansion? Did you read about the St. Al soccer team claiming another state title? If you did, then you read about these stories and more in your local newspaper.

Reading local news in your local newspaper is the reason why The Vicksburg Post matters. This week we celebrate that uniqueness as part of National Newspaper Week with the theme “Journalism matters. NOW more than ever.”

For nearly 80 years, National Newspaper Week has been an opportunity to recognize the service of newspapers and their employees across the United States.

But no where else are you going to read about the latest Warren County Board of Supervisors meeting, Vicksburg Warren School District meeting, or the Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting to see how your tax dollars are being spent or children being educated.

The Vicksburg Post has been, and will continue to be, the watchdog that holds local public officials accountable.

We will continue to promote and strive for what we all want that’s best for our community — sound government, strong economic and educational opportunities and fairness for all who call Warren County home.

While the industry has evolved and changed over the years, the one thing that remains constant is local factual and accurate journalism from The Vicksburg Post that matters to you.

We will continue to do our job and we hope you will continue to support us.
