Letter: Newspapers are critical for the community

To the Editor-

The Fourth Estate seems to be under stress these days with tariffs on newsprint which limits them to print the news.

We need to be educated citizens and we believe are inundated with news from media but having the written word allows us to ponder and make our own decisions.

If some of our key legislators believe the news is not good today, we need to take the time to study the issues and not eliminate the printed word.
