Today’s edition of the Archbold Buckeye
is eight pages, the first time we published so few pages in many decades.
It’s a sign of the times.
Today, it’s very difficult for businesses to survive in small communities when big box stores saturate a 20-mile radius.
As businesses close and others cut back advertising budgets, news organizations suffer.
It is business and industry that support news organizations through consistent advertising.
Advertising is the life-blood of all news organizations. The amount of advertising determines the number of pages each week; less advertising means fewer pages, which means less space to fit the news.
The staff of the Buckeye
strives to make the best newspaper possible. Our readership is extremely high.
We will continue to support the community we love, and we hope you will, too.
