La Misión joins CMNM


GYPSUM – La Misión, the only local Spanish language newspaper in the region, has joined the Colorado Mountain News Media (CMNM) family of publications. Distribution is in the Roaring Fork Valley and Colorado River corridor (Parachute to Avon). CMNM currently donates to printing costs. Luis Polar, founder of La Misión, is joining CMNM as editor of La Misión. A group of concerned citizens fathered the idea of a Spanish publication, and shortly thereafter, Polar helped the vision became a reality. “I believe this is going to become a new chapter in the well-being of our diverse community,” Polar said. “It’s certainly a new adventure.”La Misión has been published by the nonprofit organization Misión: Comunidad, which has many of the same values as CMCM. The first issue of La Misión was printed In September 2001 with a total of eight pages. It has been published on a continuous basis ever since. La Misión mainly focuses on local issues and stories. Contributing writers, photographers and community-based entities provides much of the content on a volunteer basis.When it was first launched, the idea was to provide a publication that informed the Hispanic community about the issues, situations, opportunities and news of the area. It evolved into having bilingual content as a means to bridge the cultural gap between Spanish speakers and English speakers. CMNM also owns the Summit Daily News, the Vail Daily, the Aspen Times, the Glenwood Springs Post Independent and weeklies in Leadville, Snowmass, Vail, Rifle and Grand Junction.
