First Day Back

When it comes to major local events, we at The Denmark News recognized how important covering “back to school” would be for our paper.

The morning of Thursday, September 1st was a beautiful, clear and warm day.

By: Chris Nelson

Local news is an important part of any community. Local television news brings another form of intimacy to each story. For the viewer, it’s a connection to a personality and a face.

Newspapers won't die, large conglomerates will

By: Chris Nelson, Publisher

Newspapers are not dying. Despite what you’ve heard. Despite what you’ve seen. Despite what you’ve read.
