At The Orange Street News, story ideas, writing, reporting, and photography are taken care by Hilde herself, while her journalist father looks after typing, layout, and printing. Two hundred copies of each issue are distributed around town every month, and more than 40 people pay $1 to $2 a year for its subscription.paper13n-2-web
