A picture is worth a thousand words.

How often have you heard this phrase? It is true, a powerful image or graphic can be the way to grab your readers attention. It sends an instant message, which is more important than ever in our world of instant news, weather and sports. 

This is one of the reasons why we need to keep using freelance artists and photographers to support our media. It keeps the message real. It keeps the message honest.  Whether it is a political cartoon or a recent photo of your community, they both matter to the reader.

Authentic and original works needs to be persevered. Support local media.
