Readers of the print version of the newspaper may notice something different today.
The height of the paper has been reduced one and a quarter inches, and the columns have been adjusted to accommodate up to six of them on a page.
Other than that, the format remains the same -- an easy-to-read tabloid that is convenient to hold and enjoy. The type face and size remain the same. The delivery remains the same.
The change makes all column widths in every Dix Communications newspaper published in Northeast Ohio the same. That is good news for advertisers who want to publish their messages in multiple publications because the costs of reprinting their advertisements is going down. This should keep advertising rates from rising as quickly as they might otherwise.
The change also lowers production costs, enabling us to keep funding news, advertising and delivery operations better.
But what hasn't changed is our mission: We continue to strive to publish the best weekly newspaper possible for your enjoyment and to better inform you about what is happening in your community.
We appreciate our readers and our advertisers and will continue to do our very best to bring you the finest community newspaper possible.
