Although I don't live in Arvada, I used to work there and when I did, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Arvada Sentinel. Their editorials I find are always insightful nd thought-provoking and they bring a real in-depth scope to the local news.
More importantly, if you have to deal with their staff on anything form subscriptions to classifieds to advertising, you consistently get a friendly voice and helpful advice. The staff there are an absolute pleasure to work with. With advertising rates climbing through the roof at the bigger Colorado newspapers, it's nice to know you can still reach a wide audience with a hometown feel at a price that is more affordable.
