Locally-owned newspapers are disappearing in America. It is such a blessing the Citizen is locally-owned and the writers all live in Windom. It is more rare when you have news reporters who live in the town where they report news. When you look at the Citizen staff I see local folks who have invested their lives into the Windom community. That is such a blessing! Not every community is blessed like this! I have covered news, on and off, since 1978, when I started at the Minnesota State News Network. No longer in the business, I know the difference between good news reporting and bad reporting. I have managed radio news departments in my years. The Citizen brings excellence to us each week, quality journalism. I still do news reporting everyday on our ministry website. Why do I bring this up? To remind us how blessed we are and for the appreciation of such a great newspaper that is committed to serving its community. I have been gone from Windom since 1977. I still subscribe to the Citizen. I love Windom, it is where my Christian foundation was built. When I show people the Citizen, they are so very impressed by the quality.
