    1. But way too few to be meaningful. We just re-upped to the Sacramento Bee for $43 for 7-day-a-week delivery through year-end. That’s a Pulitzer Prize-winning newspaper. We like that they promote our magazine’s website ( on their website too.

  1. Local? The Union is printed in Sacramento and its owners are in Nevada. As for local news, we get our fill from YubaNet (which is free) and the Bee. To each his/her own!

    1. BTW, the link on “touchdownproductions” on your comments, goes to a dead link when you click it. You might want to refresh that.
