Q: HOW IMPORTANT IS A LOCAL DAILY PAPER TO YOU AND THE COMMUNITY?
Follow-up: What outlet would you turn to for news if there were no local daily newspapers?
WAYNE HARVEY | Retired Sheriff’s Deputy | Seaside
A: Very. A daily newspaper is a good, quick read; it’s informative. Also, reading the news provides you with more than one opinion, as opposed to when you watch it.
Totally Tubular: Television. I don’t listen to the radio much and I don’t like computers.
TONYA WILLIAMS | Server | Seaside
A: Really important. Customers need their papers—people want to know what’s going on around them, especially in their hometown.
Take Tube: Local TV news. A lot of news on the Internet is too opinionated; radio news takes too long to listen to.
BILL GRAHAM | Retired Business Owner | Seaside
A: It is important, but I wouldn’t miss it. I read the paper everyday, but I’d rather watch the news than read it. I listen better than I can read, and remember more that way.
Cyberphobic: Television and radio. I don’t mess with the Internet.
