Since we began publishing in the fall of 2008, many positives have come about as a result of the Barrow Journal being on the scene.
We are the only paper that tells you what is really going on behind the scenes with our elected officials. For too long, certain aspects of local government were swept under the rug. Even when the former district attorney for this county was sent to jail, the only local paper here at the time basically ignored the story. Stepping on toes was not their game.
While we will always look out for your tax dollars and report when they are not being used wisely or legally, a newspaper has many additional components. We have a large sports section because to some people that is the most important part of the page.
