To the editor:

No song and dance, or soft lights and background music, let's have the straight and honest truth!

Is it the Eagle's plan to soon dissolve and merge the local operation of the Eagle into a conglomerate of other scattered similar — but different — "local" news outlets, and the printed page be eliminated and replaced by "online area news only"?

In other words, is this "local" paper about to be swallowed up, digested, and regurgitated as what amounts to a general Eastern Oregon news publication — one that adds lots of subscriber out-of-area (and unwanted?) bits and pieces, but precious little actual local news coverage, other than miscellaneous volunteer senior correspondent columns and such?

Will we be enticed by the lure that our classified ads will now be read by a larger — but scattered — readership as a replacement to the focused and real, local coverage and subscriber access we have had so far?

Yeah, we've seen it steadily happening all around the nation — and our state. Tell us the truth: Is it about to happen here in Grant County as well?
