If you haven't been inside Penn Market at Penn and Market, Hometown History provides this opportunity! 7 p.m., June 20.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/retroyork/posts/6279531048799687/
I'm a strong supporter of journalists, both at the national and local levels. And with the changing landscape for newspapers, my concerns are certainly not aimed at them.

The loss of local newspapers hurts our communities, with the lack of coverage of our local leaders' decisions uncovered, eventually leading to a lack of any input or direction from our citizens.

While I appreciate the efforts of some involved, the reality is that The Evening Sun has long been a masthead without any content.

Decisions by our elected leaders about support, or lack of, our longtime local institutions remain unknown by most of the community. Safety issues or other incidents, like yesterday's fire on Carlisle Street — a major road and state highway — are uncovered.

I don't have a solution, but its impact shouldn't be underplayed.
