Now more than ever, we’ve got you covered


With the change in coverage from (Hemet/San Jacinto) Valley Chronicle and Easy Ads, we wanted to take the time to assure Hemet and San Jacinto readers that Valley News is committed to continuing the award-winning, fair and unbiased coverage of the Valley. Since including the Hemet San Jacinto Valley into our larger Southwest Riverside Valley coverage area three years ago, we have published over 3000 stories and photos of local events, people, city, school and chamber news etc. As I’m sure you are aware, most of the news we print is good news, because a majority of what happens locally is good news. We are thankful to bring those stories to you weekly.

And, we are continuing to expand coverage.
