Keeping us informed as only Ogden papers can

Can’t have enough pictures of bridge work!

Looking for President Trump

If you get a chance, take a look at the front page of today's major American newspapers featured at Kiosko. You’ll notice that stories that deal with Trump and impeachment dominate those pages.

Newspapers on the cheap (the saga continues)

More examples of how Bob Nutting makes money in the newspaper business: a front-page non-story about an Ogden-favored candidate and two irrelevant editorials from Ogden’s Steubenville paper

(I most recently wrote about Nutting's "newspapers on the cheap" business model here.)

Breaking: Joanna Tabit continues to run for office

The front page of this morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer tells us that “Tabit to Try Again For Supreme Court.” In May of this year, Chief Kanawha Circuit Judge Joanna Tabit . . .

Obamacare’s positive effects on WV’s opioid crisis

(This is probably the last time you’ll read about this)

A number of sites that cover health care are featuring a just-released study of Obamacare’s effects on the West Virginia’s opioid crisis. For example, Vox reported earlier today:

Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion is helping fight West Virginia’s opioid epidemic

Hey, Ogden Newspapers: If you’re too cheap to pay for a plagiarism checker, there are free ones online

I know, I know. It doesn’t matter if the article is a “cut and paste” job – it takes up space

This morning, with a few minutes to kill, I looked at some sections of the paper that I usually don’t read. One article on page five (it’s also on page 5 of the evening paper) caught my attention:
