You are losing readers

I picked up your June 27 issue, looked at the table of contents and saw there was no “News of the Weird” or “Free Will Astrology.” I just put it right back on the rack and walked away.

I don't get it. Everyone has been complaining about these being gone and you don't bring them back. Selling advertisements is not the most important thing; selling the paper is. If people don't read it then people won't place adds. That is the basics of business. Whoever is making these decisions is a fool and should be discarded.

Editor’s reply: Unfortunately, we’ve had to make many tough decisions this year concerning what we can fit each week in the print edition. We’re working on a solution to include “News of the Weird” and “Freewill Astrology” more consistently.

    Hi David,

    Yeah NOTW is fun, however as costs go up and ads go down something has to give. If you can’t find usefulness in the coverage of the city and county and the other educational pieces in the paper perhaps you would be best served elsewhere. Whose loss is that? -Tycer
