for keeping our local newspaper alive...
Extra Extra, Read All About It...
Mahalo Nui to Oahu Publications for rescuing The Garden Island newspaper from a possible bankruptcy and potential financial meltdown. It's sad that many TGI employees lost their jobs, but it's also a blessing that everyone didn't lose their jobs, which very easily could had been a reality if Oahu Publications had not come to the rescue.
The Publishing business has been struggling with the advent of the internet and all the free websites and blogs to chose from. Many papers have ceased printing altogether and are totally electronic with pay walls. The New Orleans only daily newspaper the Times-Picayune's new reality is an online-focused newsroom and only prints a hard-copied newspaper 3 days a week. Remarkably and in contrast The Garden island news still has six days of hard-copied news.
Kaua'i is blessed to have Oahu publications care enough to keep our cosmic daily paper alive. Please continue to support your local paper in whatever way you can, either purchasing an electronic or hard-copied subscription or by placing ads.
Aloha Kakou and Mahalo Nui Loa to Oahu Publications.
