Mountain View News Saturday, July 4, 2020 

Please help us save your weekly newspaper! The National 
Emergency has had an immediate adverse impact on the future 
of the Mountain Views News. ( )

Since 2006, I have been publishing a weekly newspaper in 
the San Gabriel Valley specifically covering the cities of Sierra 
Madre, Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Pasadena, and also 
South Pasadena, Altadena and San Marino. This effort has 
been financially challenging primarily due to the nature of 
publishing and because of a 40% tariff on newsprint that was 
imposed in 2018 and is still in affect. 

 We have survived primarily on the paper's ability to publish 
legal notices and the support of our advertisers many of 
whom are also impacted by the COVID19 virus. However, 
that has all changed. We were informed mid-March that the 
County of Los Angeles closed all public access to buildings 
that process legal notices. Such action, while absolutely necessary 
means that the income generated from the publication 
of the notices has come to an abrupt halt. Without the 
ability to publish legal notices, continued publication of the 
Mountain Views News is not possible.

With your help, however, we can sustain the only paper 
where your community news comes first until such time as 
an alternative to the current legal notice processing is found 
or LA County Buildings allow public access again.

 Remember, print media is the only source of information 
that CANNOT BE HACKED! What you read in the Mountain 
Views News is accurate and as publisher, I stand behind 
every word. Our sources are reliable and dependable. Our 
Opinions share both sides of the argument. Community 
events and local organization activities are also an integral 
part of what we provide each week. And, while we do have 
an online presence, each week thousands of print copies are 

 Below are 4 ways that you can help sustain your local paper. 
All support is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
