Mission Statement

Our paper strives to achieve several things as part of its mission:

* To produce quality products of unquestioned credibility and integrity.

* To promote a unique identity and culture for Oskaloosa and surrounding counties,

differentiation this area from the remainder of South East Iowa.

* To advance the business community in this area, understanding that it it those businesses, and

the profits and tax dollars they generate, which support fire, police, roads, public safety and everything from youth sports to the arts in the communities we cover.

* To treat everyone with a sense of respect and fairness.

* To be centrist, in our political viewpoints, a friend to neither the right nor the left, but to strive to support

what's best, no matter the political ideology.

* To retain our role as the last "mass medium" in our communities, leaving our forums with the

widest sense of openness.
