Yes, I've been getting the South Bend Tribune for 30 years or so. Pay $32.50 for 6 months and use all the coupons I can. In the long run it makes the paper free. I recycle all of them. I also use them to clean windows. So it's worth it. I read the sports mostly (Notre Dame, NASCAR and high schools). Keep the Sunday ads for a week. Keep up on local news as I don't always catch it on TV. I've also contributed to the Voice of the People a few times and had articles published in the Viewpoint column. All in all it's worth it. Someday it'll be a thing of the past.

I feel guilty about this. My father and uncle both were big in newspapers in Long Beach and L.A. I majored in journalism at Woodbury College in Los Angeles I've advised newspapers in high schools for almost 40 years. Saying that I haven't read a real newspaper since I retired. Oh well. . . .
