The Filipino Star News is now six years old. This issue is the 148th issue.
The maiden issue of Filipino Star News (then known as Michigan Filipino Star) was published on Dec. 10, 2009, and since then it has been continuously published twice in a month or every 15 days.
In a six-year period ending Nov. 30, 2015, a total of 148 issues were published.
This issue (Volume 7, No. 2) represents the second issue in the seventh year of continuous publication.
The management hopes to continue publishing this community, tabloid-sized, free newspaper for many more years.
We have plans to increase the number of pages to enable us to print more news reports and articles for our readers.
We thank God for giving us the energy, wisdom and patience that enable us to keep publishing this newspaper.
We also profusely thank our advertisers for continuously supporting us. Without their support, the Filipino Star would not have gone this far.
Likewise, we express our gratitude to our readers for their words of encouragement and moral support.
As a business, like most community newspapers, the Filipino Star does not glitter like gold.
Ad revenues are just enough to cover the cost of printing and coffee for the staff.
The staff’s passion for writing and sense of public service are what keep us continue publishing this newspaper.
