    Newspaper Help

    My wife teaches high school US History. Since yesterday was a big day in US History, I told her that I would try to get as many Newspapers from around the country for her to use in future years in discussions. After a stop at Barnes and Noble and Borders all I have to show is New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and the DMRag (yeah on that one).

    My question is does anyone know where I can get more Newspapers in the Des Moines area? Do we have a newsstand anywhere in town? I'm looking for the Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, LA Times, etc.. Thanks in advance!!

    Re: Newspaper Help

    Would the Ames Tribune be among your desired sources?
    Just asking.

    Re: Newspaper Help

    Iowa State Daily would be a good get also...would printing off the articles off their website be satisfactory or do you want the newspaper itself?

    Re: Newspaper Help

    I have people that are getting the local papers, but I'm kind of stuck with a broader national scale. My intent is for her to be able to use them 15 to 20 years down the road while talking about Obama and yesterday. I have come to find out with the newspapers having on-line additions it is very difficult to find actual printed newspapers around here.

    The Ames Tribune, ISU Daily, are all good, but I would like stuff from coast to coast as well. Thanks though.

    Try the Des Moines Airport, if you live in the area.

    Re: Newspaper Help

    Can't you usually buy USA Today at convenience stores? Check the yellow pages. There used to be a local number listed in Dex for the Wall Street Journal.

    Re: Newspaper Help

    Seems like Dahl's and Hy Vee in the greater DSM area carry many larger papers.

    Re: Newspaper Help

    Do you need actual papers, or would copies suffice? Larger libraries probably have several subscriptions from other cities. I can check the ISU library if it would help.

    Re: Newspaper Help

    It seems like the Kum&Go at Mills Civic & I35 carries several papers, but I could be wrong.

    Here's another one:
    Obama Grabs News Headlines in the Americas - November 5, 2008


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Re: Newspaper Help

    This is just a shot in the dark, but the DM airport newstand/bookstore might have some papers from midwest cities; KC, Chicago, St. Louis, Omaha, etc.

    You could also try to find contact info on Google or some site, and send out letters to a lot of the major papers. If they know it's for a teacher for years to come, they might even spring for the postage.
