Every Town Needs a Newspaper

Every town needs a newspaper.

Everyone has a story to tell.

A couple of entrepreneurs who grew up here return to their old stomping grounds of Barberton and Norton and they’re embarking on a project that’s unique for the 21st century: they’re opening a newspaper. Not only a website and social media accounts, but a true get-your-fingers-smudged-with-newsprint newspaper! Fans of the longtime Barberton Herald, they’re acknowledging the past while moving forward with a fresh take on the news. Want to be a part of this exciting project right from the beginning? Here’s what we’re looking for: people who love their town. We’re looking for storytellers, photographers, news gatherers, contributors, sports enthusiasts – any age, any background. We want voices of all ages, all backgrounds to truly tell the stories of our beloved communities. Come along for the ride! Email barbertongazette@gmail.com with any questions and to express your interest and to give us ideas, tips and more! Hang on – this is going to be fun!
