The Northside News is compiled by volunteers writers, photographers and contributors. In each issue, nearly 40 community members provide news stories, features, columns, announcements and photos to provide Northside residents with a newspaper written for and by the community. We often examine issues not covered by other media outlets. We present a balance of news and feature stories in each issue to provide a slice of Northside life so there is something for everyone.
The Northside News is a perfect way to get involved in your own community!
