Welcome to the Northwest Connection.

Our Mission at The Northwest Connection is to provide an educational, informative community newspaper that promotes free market principles. We support and honor the Constitution and our founding fathers. Our goal is to stimulate the local economy by promoting area businesses and to encourage citizen involvement, which, in turn, will build stronger communities.

The Northwest Connection is a monthly published community newspaper. We welcome letters to the editor and public opinion articles. All submissions must be typed and signed with a full name, address and phone number. Articles will be published on a space available basis. We do not necessarily endorse any advertiser, public opinions and or columnists.
