Proud of our local paper

I’m so proud of the strides the Inquirer has made over the last year. Continuing their great reporting on important local issues is obviously essential but finally having a more streamlined app to read the news on the go is almost better. Keep up the good work!

Like the articles

I love the articles for the most part. It’s great to me to read and feel connected. Sometimes there’s a liberal spin especially with regards to the pro-life movement versus the pro-abortive debate. But otherwise it’s good to read especially the sports: pro teams, nova, high school,etc
