Sad news for the area....or is it?

Another local newspaper has closed. News Local has ceased to publish the Mt Druitt - St Marys Standard. This is the second local paper to close. The Fairfax published Mt Druitt Star ceased last year.
St Marys news is now covered by the Penrith Press while Mt Druitt news is covered by the Blacktown Advocate.
News Local has also closed its office in High Street, Penrith, and centralised all operations to Parramatta.
The independently produced Nepean News and its sister paper Western News are the only papers serving the Mt Druitt and St Marys areas. Both papers are published from St Clair.
