We need your submissions

As a community newspaper, the Yorktown Independent thrives on input from its community.

The Yorktown Independent does not cover national or international news. We do not subscribe to wire services so that we can run news from faraway places. We recognize that many of our readers care about what is happening in our country and around the world, but we also realize you are turning to many other news sources to hear about those things.

But what you cannot find elsewhere is what’s going on right here in your community. And that’s what we specialize in.

It’s right here in the Yorktown Independent that you will read about your local government, your schools, your high school sports teams, the latest road construction project, the exciting events taking place, the latest great catch by your local fisherman and more.

To that end, we need your help. If you know of a story that needs to be covered, have a calendar event or an obituary you would like us to run, have a press release for us to print, want us to run a photo you took or would like to be a contributor on the Opinion page, we hope you will send us an email at news@suffolknewsherald.com.

Sending us those items will help make this your newspaper — a newspaper that is truly for the community. We look forward to hearing from you!
