We live in a generous town.
The Charlotte News would like to thank everyone listed.
Two weeks ago, Anna Cyr, our managing editor, and I sent a request to several Charlotte residents asking the question, “What sort of paper should The Charlotte News be?” We’re publishing the responses that we received.
At The Charlotte News, we believe that the most important news stories leave a lasting impact and can also elevate local issues to a regional platform.
As you’ve probably heard, we launched our fall fund drive in early November with a challenge:
Well, there has been some written debate recently about journalism’s role in digging out data, putting it in a context to help the reader interpret what the data means,
The Charlotte News was saddened to hear the passing of our longtime contributor and artist, Charlie Lotz.
In the course of our lives, we’re members of many communities. I hope you will consider either joining or renewing your membership in The Charlotte News community. Your invitation will arrive in your mailbox in 10 days; it’s our year-end fundraising appeal.
Over the past two months at The News, we have listened to many voices from our community and beyond. These are people who care passionately about local news, and are strong and thoughtful supporters of our 63 year-old paper.
The Charlotte News is all digital this week, and we want to know what you think and to learn as much as possible from the experiment.

Do you get excited over a municipal government meeting? Are you nosy about what’s going on with your neighbors?…

The News is delighted to welcome intern, Champlain College student, Violet Bell.

I want to thank Peter Trombley for his excellent article, “CVU students travel to Washington to join March for Our Lives.” He captured the tone, the message, the scope and the importance of this very stirring gathering. In addition to the 38 students and five chaperones on the CVU bus, there were hundreds of other Vermonters there, including more than a few Charlotters.

An integral part of the Ph.D. in English Literature program, teaching the basics of writing and research to students majoring in economics, agriculture and biochemistry can be an exercise in dues-paying, the kind of academic scrub work meant to inspire us to become scholars qualified to teach literature courses.
Fundraising. Thank you to everyone who responded to our 2017 fundraising appeals. We finished the year having met our fundraising goal, and because of the support of both our donors and our loyal advertisers we enter 2018 in good shape financially. We look forward to your continued support in the new year.
