LETTER: The Citizen Telegram is the best 50-cent investment out there

I just finished reading the Dec. 5 edition of The Citizen Telegram cover to cover, and I have to let you know how much this publication means to me. I’m aware that newspapers are going away, but I hope that The Voice of the Rifle Area will be spared.

Without it, my husband and I would have missed the Rifle Bears basketball game on the 7th, as it was not included in the schedule I pulled off the Colorado High School Activities Association website, but it was listed on the Sports page. And we would have missed the Holiday Choral Festival on the 6th at Rifle High School, which I thankfully found out about on the calendar page. And the community page reminded me to pick an Angel Tree card, so we can share Christmas with a child in our area.

The articles and notices about government meetings keep citizens informed, the business ads encourage us to shop locally, and the Citizen Spotlight helps us know our neighbors. We live in a very unique town, and it deserves a unique publication like The Citizen Telegram. Best 50-cent investment out there.
