Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

How can the folks at the Rocky Mountain News fill the pages of the paper with an overworked staff that's smaller than it's been in years? One approach can be found in today's edition. A three-column version of "Statewide DUI Effort Snags 569," a piece by April Washington, appears on page 16 of the physical edition -- and an abbreviated variation turns up on page 23. The story's so nice, they printed it twice.

That's not repetition. It's making the most of the available resources. -- Michael Roberts

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
