‘There’s blood everywhere’: Ohio teen accused of premeditated murder of 11-year-old brother

From the publisher: We’re committed to 7-day delivery


Dear readers:

Newspapers across Ohio are cutting back. Just Thursday, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer announced it would cut home delivery to only three days a week. In Cincinnati, the Enquirer has shrunk to the size of a tabloid.

Some may ask, “What’s happening at the Dayton Daily News?” The answer: We’re getting better.

Seven days a week we’ll keep delivering our award-winning newspaper to our customers’ homes – and we’ll keep improving our news coverage. We believe if we can meet our customers’ needs, we will not only survive – we will thrive.

Here’s a look at the kind of coverage I’m talking about. For Sunday, our reporters and editors are working on stories that go beyond the headlines: a local school in financial trouble, an in-depth look at the stalemate between the Ohio Racing Commission and the company that wants to build a new Dayton racino.

And our I-Team has another blockbuster. This hard-working investigative team spent more than a month examining 1.2 million loans made by the Small Business Administration over several decades. Many loans have gone into default, even to franchises with well-known names. In fact, Quiznos and Cold Stone Creamery were at the top of the list of defaulters. Read the entire investigation Sunday in the Dayton Daily News.

We bring you stories you cannot find anywhere else. And our work doesn’t stop there. We know many customers want better digital products. They want to read local investigations and news on their tablet or phone. In the next two weeks, we will roll out new digital options to give our subscribers more ways to read our valuable content.

You’ve told us loud and clear you still want a newspaper delivered to your door seven days a week. We’re going to do that as we work to improve our journalism and increase our digital products. We believe the newspaper plays a critical role in the community, and we are committed to living up to your expectations. As always, I welcome your comments at julia.mypromise@daytondailynews.com.

Thank you,

Julia
