Editor Ben Eason launched a more serious alternative paper, a quarterly called Public Life, which carried news from neighborhood associations and civic groups and explored issues such as the media's responsibility to the community. Eventually, with additional Pew support in later funding cycles, Eason used the network of civic organizations he'd connected with to start an email based wire service, helping the groups connect to each other as well as get wider circulation for their concerns and events among media organizations.
