Hello, world! Say ‘hi’ to The Chronicle

By Noel Nash

It’s been nearly 110 years in the making: Today marks the debut of The Chronicle of Creswell, Cottage Grove, and now Springfield. And we couldn’t be happier as new “parents.”
With plenty of help and input from people throughout the community, and a growing and dedicated staff, we embark today on a longer-term journey, super-serving readers with hyperlocal content from the southern Willamette Valley.
We’ve been adding new features over the past few months, and there are more to come.
Most immediately, we are now printing and distributing more than three times our previous numbers. And we’re designing front pages specific to zip code “zones”: Creswell and Cottage Grove, and the Springfield area.
Every person is entitled to a newspaper that provides utility, information, truth, entertainment, context and perspective. Along with Creswell and Cottage Grove, Springfield residents are now receiving all of that after a two-year absence of a newspaper.
We look forward to serving our entire audience, and growing with this paradise we call home.
