Alameda Sun

Each Thursday, the Alameda Sun distributes 23,500 copies of this newspaper throughout Alameda. The Sun prides itself in being a locally owned newspaper that covers nothing but Alameda. Each week readers turn to the Sun to learn about what is happening in the Island City — whether to the Police Blotter, Fire Wire or the weekly events calendar. The Sun offers topical stories on its front, sports, health and kids’ pages. 

 

We love our subscribers so much, we’ve decided to present a new feature (on page 10) on the Alameda Sun family of supporters. The feature will present a list of Gold Circle subscribers honoring those who’ve made donations. The Silver Circle will list long-time, multiple year and currently advertising subscribers. Our standard subscribers will also appear in their own list. 

 

I just can’t quite resist continuing to print thank yous to our treasured subscribers and supporters this week. The outpouring of renewals and new subscriptions along with generous contributions to the Alameda Sun has now topped $8,000. 

 

This may mark the last of these weekly thank you letters on this page as we convert this to a weekly standing feature somewhere else. It’s just we want to return the space on this page to the community, so we can print more of their letters. 

 

This week, myself and the Alameda Sun staff would like to thank the following subscribers who responded to an editorial calling for support (“Now is the Time to Support this Unique Source of Alameda News,” Feb. 23). Since the article appeared we have raised more than $4,000 for the paper, mostly in $25 increments.

 

 

The power of the printed word cannot be denied. Our editorial of two weeks ago, (“Now is the Time to Support this Unique Source of Alameda News,” Feb. 23) made a huge impact in bringing in new subscriptions for the Alameda Sun. The ongoing love and support for this newspaper is truly touching, generous and unexpected.

This page gives me the opportunity to share with Alameda “The State of the Sun” each year and it’s truly one of the more enjoyable things I write all year. Luckily, it tends to be a good news page. I am in the unique position to spin things that way.
