‘Why We Must Support Local Journalism,’ Congressman Writes

Congressman Adam B. Schiff

Last month, we were all deeply saddened when the Los Angeles Times announced the closing of three of our community newspapers: the Glendale News-Press, Burbank Leader and La Cañada Valley Sun. These papers have played an integral role in our community for years, from informing us about local events to highlighting important work by community members and much more.
These papers have helped knit together the fabric of our communities. They covered our local achievements and setbacks, our challenges and our victories, our community heroes and our heartaches. And over the years, I had the great privilege of working with many of their talented editors and journalists. I took issue with their stories from time to time – as it should be – but I never doubted their professionalism and commitment to our community.
That is why I am so heartened that these papers will be brought back into circulation by Outlook Newspapers.

The Glendale News-Press and the Burbank Leader have been invaluable to their communities, providing essential news, impactful storytelling and insightful commentary for readers over the years. I am thrilled the Outlook Newspapers will carry on both publications to maintain their remarkable legacy of quality local journalism.
Especially during this difficult season when Los Angeles County faces immeasurable challenges as a result of COVID-19, it’s a source of comfort and relief knowing local news is still accessible. It is critical for the Glendale News-Press and the Burbank Leader to carry on their commitment to the San Fernando Valley, commemorating meaningful events and ensuring readers stay up to date on issues that impact them most.

Seniors Give Tribute to Inspiring Teachers

When the group of strangers came barging in this week, cameras in tow, the classes they interrupted were in the midst of starting work on a math packet, passionately reciting Shakespeare, studying spelling words.
None of the teachers, who had to take a timeout mid-lesson, was expecting the visit.
“He had no idea we were coming,” La Cañada High School Principal Ian McFeat promised Andy DiConti’s students, “right?”
“Haven’t a clue,” agreed the LCHS 7/8 visual arts teacher, adding, in jest, “in general.” Continue reading “Seniors Give Tribute to Inspiring Teachers”

About

Outlook Newspapers is a set of weekly newspapers with a vision of not only informing the communities we serve, but strengthening the relationships among its members and organizations.

We provide a positive and uplifting emphasis on the important events concerning our city, our schools, our sports and our charities.

We believe in synergy among Outlook readers, its advertisers and philanthropic organizations.

As readers peruse our pages for pictures and stories of themselves, their children, their grandchildren, their neighbors, their former students, their fellow board members, they raise their awareness of what’s happening in their little slice of paradise. Our readers devour our paper, most often turning and looking at every single page to locate their student or someone they know. We make your world smaller.

The Pasadena Outlook has been covering Pasadena since the fall of 2008. We have nurtured relationships with the large, but homogeneous community of private elementary, middle and high school families, with Pasadena city officials and with the incredible array of philanthropic organizations that call the Rose City home.

The Pasadena Outlook is delivered by mail every Thursday to more than 17,400 homes and businesses in the Pasadena area. An additional 5,100 copies are delivered to locations throughout the Pasadena area, including various private schools, real estate offices and many of the local Starbucks stores.

The La Cañada Flintridge Outlook has been publishing since 1998. We have extensive, long-standing contacts with city government, with the La Cañada Unified School District, and with sports activities at all levels. We maintain active relationships with the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA, Verdugo Hills Hospital, Descanso Gardens Guild, Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station, the L.A. County Fire Department’s local stations, local artistic and performing groups and many other groups in the community.

The LCF Outlook is the recipient of both the prestigious Les Tupper Community Service award and the PTA’s Founder’s Day award. The Les Tupper award recognizes organizations for their exceptional support of charitable programs and community projects. The PTA Founder’s Day award recognizes an organization for its devotion to local schools. The LCF Outlook is also the recipient of numerous outstanding Business Achievement Awards, presented by the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce.

The LCF Outlook is delivered every Thursday to approximately 10,900 homes and businesses in the 91011 zip code. An additional 3,200 copies are delivered to more than 100 locations with high foot-traffic volume in LCF, Pasadena, Glendale, La Crescenta and Montrose.

The Outlook doesn’t ignore the big issues, but we make room for the small, but ultimately more meaningful issues that land right in our reader’s backyards: what is happening in my community and who is involved?

The Outlook answers important questions, such as:

  • Who is planning the next charity gala?
  • Which charity truly emphasizes aid for the homeless?
  • Where can I learn about parenting skills?
  • When is the next high school band concert?
  • Why did the local football coach take a job in another city?

Outlook Newspapers believes that strong community newspapers are essential to building strong communities. We strive to produce economically sound newspapers that foster pride in the communities they serve and to make a difference in the quality of life for residents and merchants.

Our Motto: Building strong communities, one smile at a time.
