There are no “opinion” columns.
No fluff, no filler or press releases presented as stories.
Readers enjoy – and share with others – stories written from an East Portland perspective. They learn how East Portland civic, neighborhood, education and business leaders think about important city, county, state and national issues affecting us all.
And, instead of having to wade through long, boring articles, East Portland News readers get the facts, presented in concisely-worded stories.
And, don’t forget the photos! Each story is lavishly illustrated with lots of exclusive photographs that help the reader feel like they experienced the event – not simply read about it.

Environmentally friendly, hosted locally
First, because there is no printed version of East Portland News, we’re saving trees and the environment from the processing chemical used to make paper and ink, and fuel used to deliver the raw printing materials – and distributing newspapers.
And, not only do we carry stories showing how your neighbors are helping make East Portland a better, more environmentally-friendly place to live, the computers that hold and show you our website are 100% renewable-energy powered!
And, we believe in supporting local business. That’s why we’re now hosted, right here in Portland, by a locally owned and operated family firm.
