    Core Beliefs

    Community Newspapers should:

    • Provide complete, factual and accurate information to the public it serves.
    • Aid the profitability of area businesses and the community at large by providing advertising in a form that ensures it will be seen by interested consumers.
    • Engage the community in public debate over serious issues that affect the community.
    • Promote the bedrock principle that government "of the people" needs involvement "by the people" to help leaders judiciously make decisions that will positively impact the populace they serve.
    • Have an opinion.

    The Sun is a member of the Illinois Press Association, Southern Illinois Editorial Association, New Baden Chamber of Commerce and International Society of Weekly Newspaper Editors.
