Stay connected — support your local newspaper

(Above) Carol Casey enjoys reading her Mirror-Reporter right here in Clear Lake.  We invite you to make the Mirror-Reporter part of your weekly routine and keep connected with your community.

Carol Casey had no idea that the Mirror-Reporter was kicking off its annual subscription campaign when she sent a photo and note to the newspaper this week.   The truth is, Carol sent the perfect message.

Mirror-Reporter readers, like Carol, take real ownership in the newspaper.  They tell us what they like.  They tell us what they don’t like.  They make suggestions.  They submit not only story ideas,  but stories.  They help us share all that is good about Clear Lake, and sometimes take us to task when we miss something.  That’s OK.  It’s their newspaper.

The Clear Lake Mirror-Reporter belongs to all of us.  It’s a true community newspaper.

Our subscription campaign will run for the next month, offering readers a chance to renew their investment in the newspaper (and receive an additional four weeks free), or give the paper a try for the first time (and receive an additional eight weeks free and three-month e-edition).

“I’m sending you the photo I posted to Facebook today as my encouragement to invest in and belief in the importance of the American media, especially in supporting local news organizations.  Since you post pictures of your readers in far away places, I thought it appropriate to share where I read the Mirror Reporter— right here!  Thank you for your effort to provide professional journalism close to home.” - Carol Casey, Clear Lake/Iowa City.

Thank YOU, Carol!  We do our best to be your hometown newspaper and cover all aspects of the community.  School district and city business, church and club news, weekend happenings, the ever-popular Remember When, deaths, births, legal notices, garage sales, new businesses and those marking milestones are all a part of what we love to share with you, our readers.

Please consider renewing or beginning a subscription to the Mirror-Reporter at this time.  Connect with the community and keep our local news strong.

More information about our subscription campaign can be found on page 8A in this edition.
