So what does everyone think about the new changes that will be made? Do you like it? Not like it? How do you feel about it being delayed?
I'm a student doing a project on the paper. I do not work at the paper.

I haven't done any research on the format, but size-wise it looks like they are copying USA today.

Pulp newspapers are dinosaurs. Why should I settle for news that's hours, days or even weeks old when up-to-the-second news is just a click away on the internet? I used to think a newspaper's one saving grace was the fact you can read it while sitting on the toilet but nowadays you can just as easily do the same with any wireless device.

The other problem with the virtual world is that it is easy to scrub history. This has some not so appealing political implications in my opinion. Not so easy to scrub history when something has been committed to paper.

I personally like the paper format, such as what you see with the enquirer link above. I have no problem with a computer device, but like the idea of something laid out like a piece of paper.

Channel 10 isn't the only online source for local news. Besides, they're still quicker than waiting until the next day to read the Columbus Buttscratch.

all that paper used to print newspapers on is not wasted.

I buy all that trash and utilize it for something useful at 25 cents to the dollar the dispatch spent.

every single newspaper is almost broke; and it won't be long they all are out of business

look at ma bell as an example

recycling trash to manufacture something everybody uses for pennies on the dollar is working just fine for the moment.

the owners of newspapers ego has them losing family fortunes at an alarming rate.

I feel it my civic duty to earn 50% margins turning their trash into my checkbook growth.

Channel 6 at 12:30pm shows news that Channel 10 at noon never said anything about.

I do the SUDOKU every day. During the week is is
VERY LARGE-- bigger than it needs to be. But today
(Sunday) when there are the High Fives (FIVE
PUZZLES ) is is VERY SMALL-- hard to read. Maybe
this can be corrected. Otherwise I like the new,
smaller paper.
