A new weekly publication in Rutland aims to prove the city is a happening place.
It's called the Rutland Reader. Set to hit newsstands Thursday, the free paper will feature a section called "Plus Five" with the top five things to do in Rutland that week. It will also include in-depth investigative pieces and articles geared toward local travel and entertainment.
Editor Jim Sabastaso says he hopes it will help boost pride in the city.
"We're trying to sort of dig underneath of the day to day stuff in Rutland and show people that there's a lot of cool stuff going on. There's interesting things. There's interesting people. And we're going to package it and present in a way that sounds like fun and gets you off the couch," Sabastaso said.
