In Eureka, Juab County, City Weekly has become the only news publication available. Your recent coverage of the 2010 election follies is, for many in this town, the only opportunity they have to get an idea of a few of the issues and candidates [“We’ve Got Issues,” Oct. 28, City Weekly]. Of course there is the Internet, but not everyone is connected. We have had no broadcast TV since 2004, so those who don’t and/or can’t pay for cable or satellite service have no access to outside information.

The Salt Lake Tribune, in their devotion to bottom lines and shareholder happiness, stopped delivery here three to four years ago. Also, no one here ever subscribed to the Deseret News. A few months ago, the Provo Daily Herald also stopped delivery. We were no longer a “profitable market,” another result of this 30-year trend of serving profit rather than the public.

So, thanks, City Weekly.
