The Alfred Sun, it only comes out once a week!

We have all heard the slogan “I love Alfred, NY. Where the SUN come out once a week!” Is it true that the SUN comes out only once a week? If you ask most students, especially in the winter, the answer is affirmative. Yet some forget the small pun in this slogan. The Sun is a paper, a weekly newspaper for the village of Alfred.
The paper was founded in 1883 and printed in tabloid format. The Sun features several items not found it a normal town newspaper. There is always a picture in The Alfred Sun of readers reading The Sun in a different location. There is also the segment of The Sun where they summarize the going-ons of Alfred many years ago.
Unfortunately there is not much on this topic so far, The Sun has continued true to its small town roots and does not have a website!
