We consider this publication to be part of life in Arcadia. We strive to contribute to the fabric of this community, and we are proud of the people and the area we have served for 28 years. This “good news newspaper” really belongs to you, since we wouldn’t exist without the stories and the advertising. Readers help us discover positive stories about our neighbors, businesses, schools, sports and children, and they patronize our advertisers, who support the paper in multiple ways.
The Arcadia News is not part of a newspaper chain or a media conglomerate. My wife Jennifer and I own the paper, and we live in Arcadia, where we are raising our two sons (plus a dog and a few chickens). We have local employees who have their own families, and we like to hire local freelance writers and photographers. We support area businesses by calling on the advertisers in our paper, and we appreciate our readers doing the same.
This crisis has been rough on businesses and people all over the world, but it’s really hard to watch this impact our neighbors and their businesses. We have worked with many of them for more than 20 years. With cash flows unpredictable, some of our customers have had to reduce their ad budgets. We work with them however we can, because now is not the time to cut an expense that might bring in new customers and generate income.
Like most free newspapers, we make money by selling advertising. These dollars support the paper and fund all of our efforts to providing you with award-winning community news. We appreciate our advertisers and our readers – and we are grateful for your continued support as we all get back to regular life in Arcadia.
