The reason my entire family has stopped subscribing is because of SDN's policy of printing every traffic ticket and fart in the paper. I do not care who got a traffic ticket, why waste paper on that?

They print all kinds of useless gossipy bullshit and ignore important things. They share some of the responsibility on why Sidney is so screwed up right now.

Oh, and as for the discount for subscribers, ads are how newspapers make money. Your subsription probablty barely pays for the paper and ink in the paper you purchase.

They have to fill the pages somehow but I do agree with you on the point of responsibility on situations in Sidney right now.

Sidney Daily went down in content quality when Brown bought it.
when the Amos family owned/operated it was a good paper.

I like the sports section, a little too much Lehman comverage for me though. But that's where he is from so it's understandable
