17 Years and Counting

Seventeen years ago, a vision to create a way for Londonderry residents to
obtain local information they needed (soccer registration dates, for
example) led to the creation of the first issue of the Londonderry Times.
What began as a humble monthly town journal, printed in the basement of the
Londonderry home of Deb and Chris Paul, has blossomed through the past
decade and a half into three weekly newspapers full of news, sports,
features, photos, and advertising for three newspapers serving five New
Hampshire towns. All brought to you by a staff of seven in an historic
Londonderry building with an unwavering commitment to focus on everything
Under the auspices of their company, Nutfield Publishing, the Pauls and
their staff (all southern New Hampshire residents) put out three newspapers
every week, each one dedicated to the communities they were created for.
The Londonderry Times was started in January of 2000 as a monthly
publication. The weekly Nutfield News in Derry started in 2004, and the
weekly Tri-Town Times for Hampstead, Chester and Sandown began in 2005.
During a time when print newspapers are expected to go the way of the
dinosaur, and people claim that they have no more readers, the Londonderry
Times and its two sister publications are still going strong, even as other
newspapers cut the number of days a week they publish, slash the number of
pages in each edition, or move to a completely electronic platform.
We report on town and school district activities, official and otherwise.
Happy stories are given emphasis to ease the uneasiness brought on by less
pleasant news. Local high school sports teams get detailed coverage, much to
the delight of parents and family members. Most importantly, we make sure
that all of our readers are informed of all of the decisions being made and
discussions that are taking place in each of their hometowns.
It¹s not unusual for news stories to appear first in one of the Nutfield
Publishing papers, well before other news media can produce a report. How is
that? Everyone at the paper is dedicated to producing a quality product, and
put great care into what it looks like and what it says, recognizing that
timeliness and accuracy are the hallmarks of what a newspaper offers its
The mission, of course, is the same as it was 17 years ago: to provide a
place for local residents to obtain information they need about their
community, whether it¹s a school play or an update on how tax dollars are
being spent, is our number one priority. What¹s going on in Concord or in
Washington, D.C., or abroad is available elsewhere, mostly online, and does
not concern us. But if it happens in one of our towns, you should expect to
read about it in our newspapers.
And we always like getting news tips. Stop by our office at 2 Litchfield
Road in Londonderry to say ³Hello,² as we mark our 17th Anniversary.
We¹re here for you, 17 years and counting.
