6. I subscribe to my local paper, the Cincinnati Enquirer, and their weekly neighborhood offshoot.

I pay for both online and hard copy with the Enquirer.

At one time the Cincinnati Enquirer had a strong national reputation. Like most local newspapers these days, they have cut their staff enormously, and it is no longer printer locally, but in Columbus, Ohio. While there are still some good local stories, one section is USA Today, another is sports, which I am no longer interested in. I'm a big obituary reader. Although I can and do get both local and national news online, I like having the hard copy in my hands at breakfast & lunch. I'll likely stay with it until either I or the Enquirer goes.

I get the weekly neighborhood paper to support the boy who delivers it. My own children delivered it decades ago, and I believe in supporting young people working regularly - wonderful training in responsibility.
