100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Scientology Column Was a Bad Joke

Opinion of the Scientology column.

It’s the Ann Romano article. Is that a joke? Is there any documentation of Scientology? Would she/you do the same thing to Baptists/Catholics/ etc.? I am overwhelmed with the content; there is nothing about The Week in Review. It’s not a week in review. It’s without resource-fullness, which makes it just trash.

Is there a mature person writing the article? Is there a 27 year old or a 44 year old. Her immaturity is all over the article and perhaps that’s the intent. If so, then it’s just trash and if the Source prints articles like that, what’s a reader of the Source to do? Just look at the ads? It does get me riled up.


Which is a good thing. Travolta and Cruise are two separate people. They don’t become one just because you use the word Scientology. What would Ms. Romano do if/when she were to read about Scientology and find she is on the wrong track, and there is certainly a wrong track in her article. Now pass this on to the editor, the assistant editor, the editorial board.

Did I research this reply before sending it? Yes, actually I did and I go the results from my common sense file.
