A special message to our subscribers

March 11, 2011 by Randy Keck

I am writing this message to let our subscribers know that you will probably not receive your paper in the mail this week until Saturday.

The United States Post Office in Aledo has implemented a new system that caught us off guard this week. I was informed two weeks ago that under the new system, we would not be able to mail our papers after 4 p.m. on Thursday. When our papers arrived at the post office at about 3:30 yesterday, the post office refused to accept the mailing because it was after 3 p.m.

This is yet another in a growing list of new procedures over the last year that make one thing entirely clear: the post office does not want our business.

A special message to our readers in Willow Park

November 13, 2010 by Randy Keck

An item is on the agenda for the Willow Park City Council's Monday, Nov. 15 agenda regarding the city's official newspaper of record. We anticipate that at that time, the city council will vote to change the city's newspaper of record from The Community News to the Weatherford Democrat. We will attempt to have the following statement read into the record during the discussion of this issue. However, it is unclear whether the statement will be allowed, so we put it here for the historical record.

-----

For more than 15 years The Community News has proudly served the residents of Willow Park, working harder and longer than any other news source to bring news and information about the city to its residents.

Special Commentary on Willow Park Council Meetings

September 10, 2010 by Randy Keck

Special Commentary from publisher Randy Keck:

This commentary is a highly unusual event for The Community News, but under the circumstances I felt that this information needed to be sent out before the next issue of our newspaper goes to press.

If you talk to Willow Park City Administrator Candy Scott, you may see bus tire treads running up and down her back. Another newspaper has been reporting stories that place the blame for Willow Park’s current budget problems squarely on her shoulders.

It is not the purpose of this commentary to critique the way our competitors handle their reporting; nor is it to delve into the reasons for Willow Park’s financial mess. But there is information you, as readers of either or both newspapers, should know.
