FINALLY!! Your request to have the LCO Newsprint edition mailed out will be fulfilled.
I’ve received many requests over the years to have the newspaper mailed out as we have so many Tribal Members living abroad, spread out all over the United States. We have loved ones who moved away in search of a better life, a promising job opportunity, a great place to raise their children. We’ve had our family members sent away to prison to suffer consequences. They all want to stay connected to their home, to stay informed and now finally, they can. And here’s how…
But first, let me tell you a story about two tribal members who graduated together from LCO and lived very similar lives. They married, had three children each, both were personable and well-liked all the way from their school years and through growing up. They both went on to work for the Tribe in similar office jobs, making very similar salaries. But there was a difference. Twenty-five years later, one still worked in that same office while the other became Tribal Chairman.
What made the difference. Some will say it’s who you know, but that couldn’t be further from the truth… It’s what you know! It’s having the knowledge of our Tribe. The Lac Courte Oreilles News provides the knowledge of our Reservation from how our government works, their weekly legislative actions, how they assist our people on a daily basis to how our social programs operate to better the lives of our citizenry. If it’s breaking news from our tribal government, our educational systems, our public safety institutions or the happenings of our membership, the Lac Courte Oreilles News is there. The purpose of this publication: To give its readers knowledge, the everyday knowledge about the who, what, where, when and how of the Lac Courte Oreilles Tribe.
You see, the Lac Courte Oreilles News is a unique publication in Indian Country. We are one of the very few remaining printed Tribal newspapers and one of only a couple that print on a weekly basis. Our digital footprint now has nearly 10,000 subscribers and as we expand our print format from its current 2,000 circulation, we’ll be adding more features that you won’t find in the digital. Currently, only obituaries are in the print, but soon we’ll be adding more news from our neighboring Tribes and more state level governmental news that affects our Tribe.
I’m sharing here images of a few of our recent front pages, so that you as a digital reader can see what our print edition has to offer. It combines the latest breaking news headlines with images of our social happenings of our youth. From tribal government issuing assistance checks, or a tribal youth saving another youth’s life, or LCO School Royalty representing in Washington DC. And there’s so much more to read in our weekly news.
