Each year, during the first full week in October, newspapers across North America celebrate National Newspaper Week (NNW) to celebrate and emphasize the impact of newspapers to communities large and small. This year marks the 76th anniversary of the initative and will take place between October 2-8. In addition, Carrier Appreciation Day will be celebrated on Saturday, October 8 to recognize the hard workof newspaper carriers who make a vital contribution to the industry.
Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) have reached a tentative short-term agreement, averting a work disruption.
The agreements are for a period of two years, rather than the usual four-year agreements negotiated in the past. Canada Post indicates that the decision would avoid a work disruption and allow more time to examine issues facing the Crown Corporation, including declining mail volumes and rising pension costs.

The Thamesville Herald was founded in 1886 and most recently was owned and operated by Allison Humphrey. Heather Wright purchased the community newspaper with a circulation of about 900 in late June. The sale was finalized on July 28.
Wright plans to expand the coverage area of the Herald to include the communities of Dresden and Bothwell, which have been without their own community weekly for several years.
