Some kind words from our subscribers...

“As a community newspaper, we rely on the News Service of Florida to give us more insight on state news that might not be available elsewhere. It also gives our reporters access to stories and information that we can localize or as ideas for a possible story angle affecting Putnam County, even if it's just something included in a News Service briefs package. The photos that are included with stories are also valuable to us.”

“We find the News Service of Florida the best bargain in the State for keeping up with the Legislature and State News. The Clerk’s Office is heavily impacted by State Government actions. We also get other news from around the State which we find is an important heads up for our office.”
