Dear Tracy Press readers,
If you’ve been in Tracy for a few years or more, you’re used to changes in your hometown. Tracy has seen some mighty big changes, and so has this 109-year-old newspaper. What hasn’t changed - since the 1940s, at least - is the family that owns and runs the Tracy Press, our location downtown, our commitment to local news and you, our loyal readers.
Today we announce changes in our publication. Starting Sept. 5, we will deliver three papers a week, on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays - with seven days of news online at www.tracypress.com.
We don’t take this change lightly. We know some of you would prefer to have the paper delivered to your home every day. But it’s a new world in the newspaper business, and we’re embracing it as quickly as we can, with the resources we have. Economic necessity is driving this decision as much as the changing realities and challenges of the business we’re in. If we could deliver the printed newspaper every day, we would. But it no longer makes economic sense for us to do so.
You can be assured that we will always try to make the Tracy Press the best it can be, with three generations of our family working every day. As always, your comments, good and bad, are welcome, and we look forward to hearing from you.
Bob & Cheri Matthews
