At your service
We've all heard the words, "we will get through this together," a million times in recent weeks.
Understandably, people want to know what happens in the meantime. When it comes to our newspaper, there is no easy answer.
Most people are aware the COVID-19 outbreak has severely hurt small businesses. Newspapers are no exception. Here at the Cottonwood County Citizen, we've seen a major drop in advertising and other business.
Although we offer fewer pages these days, readers of the Citizen and Citizen eEdition are seeing significant news, community, family, opinion and sports coverage. By the way, readers can still order our Citizen eEdition (see notices on pages 3, 4 and 11).
Our goal throughout these difficult times is to provide solid coverage in all of our publications. For some time, we have been providing daily updates on our website, www.windomnews.com, at 8 a.m., noon and 5 p.m., plus breaking stories as they occur.
While social distancing has stifled our event coverage, it has put a greater premium on things like feature stories and updates of news and government stories. Given the difficulties created by the COVID-19 outbreak, we will strive to provide some upbeat stories each week.
The Citizen may look different, but readers are seeing our very best efforts.
We will get through this, together
