One wonders how much longer this classic example of Americana--the family-owned newspaper--can last. Of all things Butler, this blog and the Butler Eagle remain the last two connections to my hometown.

Newspapers and schools will both disappear in time and will be taken over by the internet.

If I am not mistaken the Eagle Printing part of the Butler Eagle is where they make their money now. I think the paper is just something they don't let go of because of tradition. You can go online now and get the same information for free. I don't know if schools will disappear.

Not to be picky, but the online version of the Butler Eagle requires a paid subscription. Obituaries, which are my main interest as a former Butlerite living far away, remain free.

Too bad insidebutlercounty.com looks like it was written by a 2 year old so much of the time. If they could get there s*** together, they could give the Eagle a serious run for their money.

I agree, insidebc.com usually is so far behind the news it is irrelavent and the butler eagle is not a good neighbor to the island the trucks tear up the street they make all kind of noises in the middle of the night, wish they would have moved to e butler

So many comments on this blog remind me of the Three Bears story.
Baby bear comes out in the morning and say, "Somebody ate my porridge." Paba bear comes out and says, "Somebody ate my porridge." Mama bear says, "Bi***, bi***, b****, I haven't even made it yet!"

I wish the Butler Eagle was a good as some other small town papers. Some of them you can read the entire article for free. I always look at the Eagle on the computer but so much is impossible because I don't have an internet subscription. Awful. And funny how they slowly remove things from the site . There are things I used to look at and now I can't now because it is gone.
