  • Column: For small papers, newsprint tariffs might be the end

    It isn’t that easy to drop everything in the middle of the week and fly to Washington.
    If you’re a community newspaper publisher, going anywhere in the middle of the week is a challenge. That is when the newspaper has to be edited, printed and distributed to readers.
    People in Mayville, Wisc., where I publish the Dodge County Pionier, count on my paper. It is how they find out what is happening in town. We don’t have a local TV station. Facebook and Google are here, but the internet has no journalists in my town.
