This week, Oct. 7-13, is the 78th annual celebration of National Newspaper Week, a recognition of the service provided by newspapers and their employees across North America. Sponsored by Newspaper Association Managers, this year’s theme is “Journalism matters. NOW more than ever.”

Newspapers cover community events, publish timely public notices and serve as the community’s civic and government watchdog. To mark National Newspaper Week, The Bryan Times this week will be offering editorial page content that offers thoughtful insights on the importance and continuing relevance of newspapers to our community.

And ‘Thank you’ for reading The Bryan Times.
