NewsView – Support Local News!

By Chris Murphy

As you know, ModestoView is 100% committed to 100% positive coverage of people, events and activities in our community. We are a magazine load with good stuff. We are not, and never tried to be a newspaper or news organization.

It is important for us to be up to date on the news and current events that impact our community and informed citizens make a positive difference. We need that community info, the oversight, coverage of local government so that we, the citizens can stay informed and take action when necessary.

We need our local newspaper and it is sad that many communities are losing their local paper. We need professional journalists keeping the citizens up to date and informed. A strong free press protects our democracy and our freedoms. Make a point to be up to date with news and current events about our area and subscribe where you can.
