From 2008 to 2019, the percentage of people who said they got their news from local papers every day fell by more than half . In the same time period, the number of newsroom jobs plummeted .

One of the members that voted against the resolution was Alderperson Steve Hass. In a statement to News 9, he says, "My reason for my vote was the fear of state and federal funding being cut for non compliance." Johnson tells News 9 outright, there's nothing that says cities would face penalties.  "There are some people that think the state has a mandate and there is no mandate because the Wisconsin legislature has not adopted an OSHA standard for this, and until they do, it cannot be mandated under OSHA," Johnson said. As for what's next, Johnson says what's done is done. "I think that what the council was wanting to do was to make a statement on their feelings on this. I don't believe that there will be a whole lot of additional talk in the community about it. It's just something that's out there," he said. During the meeting, the council did leave the possibility of further discussion, should the circumstances allow.

Nola Buck She couldn’t handle the thought that it was going to be a lifelong job. I sometimes wonder if one of the reasons she left was the local chatter as to what she did that led to me catching polio. I was the only case at that time. “Small town” talk in those days was very much in place. My father raised me. We actually just got on with life. He had the attitude that this is a cruel world, it isn’t going to change for you – you have to learn to live in it. I contacted my mother again when I was about 19. She was still very embarrassed about it and for a number of years kept introducing me as her niece.

Bill Belichick later claimed Newton's vaccination status didn't factor into the decision to release the quarterback. After being released, Newton said in early September that the Patriots released him because he was "going to be a distraction." In Sunday's video, Newton emphasized he wants to join a team in 2021. "Hell yeah I still want to play football," Newton said, per ESPN . "I still get that urge to go out and perform and do something that I've been doing since I was 7 years old." To that end, Newton got vaccinated, which allows him to more easily sign with a club without having to isolate before joining a new team. Given the NFL's COVID-19 protocols, unvaccinated free agents are essentially sidelined at this stage. Newton noting his vaccination status is a signal to clubs that it won't be an impediment. The question is which team might benefit from bringing in the veteran quarterback. Newton noted in Sunday's video the situation "has to be right," adding he's getting offers. At this stage of the season, there are few QB jobs open.
