Hello! We have some exciting news to share. The Colorado Sun and The National Trust for Local News have bought @ColoradoNewsCCM and its 24 Front Range newspapers.

When we announced The Colorado Sun nearly three years ago, someone asked whether we’d consider producing print newspapers one day. Our reply: We’ll do whatever Colorado needs us to do.
All too often, hedge funds are the first ones in line to buy newspapers. So we pooled our resources with the National Trust to create the Colorado News Conservancy, which will own and operate the papers.

Some of these papers are more than 100 years old (the Golden Transcript alone is 153 years old), and they range from Castle Rock to Brighton, Evergreen to Arvada, Parker to Denver’s Washington Park and beyond. We’re excited to be working with all of them.
What does this all mean? We won’t be getting in the way of these papers’ day-to-day operations.

Instead, we’ll bring our experience and business know-how to help them thrive and provide the hyper-local coverage of school boards, cities and counties that only they produce.
These papers provide vital information for their communities. So if you don’t already, consider subscribing to support their work.

We want to thank @co_mediaproject and @colabnewsco for helping bring everyone together to make this all happen.
We also want to thank Sun readers and members. It's your support that allows us to produce quality journalism. If you are not a member already, consider becoming one today. coloradosun.com/join

That's why we write award-winning articles that help Coloradans better understand our state. coloradosun.com/2021/04/29/col…
And that's why we teamed up with the National Trust for Local News to buy Colorado Community Media and its 24 newspapers. coloradosun.com/2021/05/03/col…

Hey there, Colorado. You may have seen unverified reports of a 15-year-old dying after receiving a COVID vaccine.

Context is really important when looking at vaccine data — especially reports of deaths, so here’s how it works. 👇
The federal government collects data using the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (or VAERS). Anybody can make a report — doctors and nurses, but also the people who received the vaccine or their family members.
The purpose is to have one, big, catch-all system to collect reports about any possible side effect.

But that leaves one very big downside: VAERS can contain reports for things that have nothing to do with a vaccination.
