A small targeted audience is the strength of community newspapers. It’s also the biggest challenge.
How do we build a community newspaper that meets your needs and expectations without compromising the needs and expectations of another?
How do we ensure that the same information, services and features are accessible to all community members no matter their resources?
Fox in Focus aspires to present something about everything Fox Creek
The answer lays in tone and intent.
Fox in Focus aspires to present something about everything Fox Creek.
This paper will evolve; so will our readers and their needs.

Beyond the PEACE
The advent of community online news has facilitated our understanding of others and the world around us. The internet is a daily resource for 75% of Canadians. The age, access, and income barriers narrow every year. Aggregate news, feeds, variety, multi-media formats, ease, immediacy, interactivity and universality have contributed to online news’ growth.
Fox Creek has a voice; it has a perspective worth sharing …
We’ve met unique communities, discovered values, information, opinions and culture. We’ve sought internet resources to compare, to research, to laugh, grieve, and communicate. Online community news records our stories, efforts and achievements and shares them with an ever changing, shrinking world desperate for fellowship.
Fox Creek has a voice; it has a perspective worth sharing; our insights, culture and experience are pertinent well beyond geographical limits.
Let’s get started. We have so much to contribute.
