There is a brand new newspaper here in Wyoming. Liberty's Torch
The website is not the greatest, but we'll be working on improving it. The main effort now is putting out and distributing the dead tree paper. Started in Cheyenne 6 months ago, and already trying to expand from a monthly to a bi-weekly, hopefully before the end of the year. Then they'll look at weekly, and finally shoot for daily.
I got involved when the link was posted to a forum I frequent. I emailed the publisher with a comment and the rest is history.
Right now I'm traveling around the area talking to people, passing out samples of the paper and establishing distribution points in businesses. They'll be recruiting reporters and writers from the various regions soon, to begin covering local news and issues. I'll be writing some of that too, naturally.
The response so far has been incredible, so we'll move this along as quickly as we can.
I'd say that the reports of the demise of newspapers is greatly exaggerated.
