August 2018 reader survey

The Chronicle staff is checking in with readers to see how we're doing and what we should consider doing differently. 

The Chronicle is a local, independent newspaper that publishes on the online daily and in print monthly. Our slogan is "News you can't get anywhere else," and that's because nobody pays attention to our community like our community newspaper does. Are we paying attention to the right things? We look forward to hearing what you think.


We plan to continue offering news and features at no charge on our website and in our monthly advertiser-supported print edition, but we are also looking at ways to make the Chronicle a stable business that can serve the community for many years. A number of readers have expressed interest in pitching in, but because the Chronicle is not a nonprofit organization, we cannot accept donations. Instead, we wonder if readers would be interested in a subscription service that provides additional value (ideas include a weekly e-edition, Chronicle-sponsored events for subscribers, and online discussion forums for subscribers).
If you would be willing to consider a new subscription service in addition to current products, what do you think would be a reasonable monthly fee?
Could we have permission to use your comments in Chronicle promotions?
Would you be willing to be quoted by name? If so, please tell us who you are (and THANK YOU!).

About Us

A great community deserves a great newspaper. The HF Chronicle was created in June 2014 as an online publication. In December 2015 we began monthly print publication, too. Our mission is to chronicle the life of our community — news by, for, and about the people of Homewood and Flossmoor, Illinois.
