DI News: It’s for you, about you

We’ve been publishing news and features about the Daniel Island and Cainhoy communities for 20 years. It is a responsibility we do not take lightly. We plan, research, write, design, photograph, verify and edit. 
Did you know that every item published in the paper is edited four times by three different editors? We take similar care in publishing information on our website, via our e-newsletters, and on our social media platforms. If we make a mistake, we correct it.
Our aim is to provide reliable information that is about you and is helpful to you. 
We do this by covering the good, the tragic, and the fun. Our coverage includes the six K-12 schools that serve the DI and Cainhoy area, local government, commercial/retail/residential developments, elections, sports, business, traffic, crime. We tell stories about helpers, your neighbors, nonprofits, clubs and organizations. 
We know what the research shows: communities with strong newspapers are healthier communities than those without local news. More engaged. Better informed. Connected.
Not every community has a thriving paper. Ten community papers have closed in our state in recent years. Others are barely surviving, ghost papers that cannot afford to provide the news their communities need.
Our community is fortunate. We have talented and experienced writers and editors who go above and beyond the call. We have committed advertisers who value our readership, our product, our customer service, and the importance of community journalism.
But we also face challenges. Reporting the news is time consuming, labor intensive, and costly. Reporter and editor burnout is real. More and more local marketing dollars are leaving the community and being spent with giant social media corporations.
These are challenges, and we continue to seek solutions, to find innovative ways to continue to serve the community. 
We remain ever thankful to our readers and advertisers. As we celebrate National Newspaper Week, please remember to support the advertisers in the paper. They make our reporting possible. Because of them, our community is well-informed, engaged and connected.
I encourage you: Thank an advertiser today; thank a reporter today.
