Why is local news important?
This matters because it digs deep into what’s going on in your community, for example this story that examined the mystery of the hiring murder covered by New Jersey politics.
This is important because it lets you know how your tax dollars are spent, like this story about the Rutgers sports program.
And we have fun too, as this story showsfor what a life without whims.
