About Community Powered News Network

Launched in April of 2009, our first publication Ramapo Times has quickly become a destination for those who want to news and information about the goings on in Rockland County. Our initial focus was on the Town of Ramapo but we’ve grown as our audience has grown to the point where we are increasingly serving much of the county.

Our photos are highly regarded; we don’t take sides on the issues and we promote events and non-profits as much as possible. As a community news platform, we encourage our readers to voice their opinions and to attack the issues, not the individuals. Our Publisher’s “Dookies in the Pool” blog which is usually a humorous take on life remains an extremely popular feature.

The site was completely redesigned and then re-launched in August 2011 offering readers more customization options so that they get the news and information that is important to them while being able to turn off the categories in which they have no interest. In 2014 we moved to a powerful new platform with capabilities that allows us to easily expand to serve communities across the nation.

Our goal is to provide affordable and innovative advertising, promotional and brand-building solutions to small and mid-size businesses that connect them with local consumers.
