Some ideas:

Article on what liberties have been lost. What was life like before the liberties were taken away. For instance, what was life pre-zoning?

Articles on alternatives to the present system. Maybe take a look at what a voluntary system would look like. How would it function?

I'm currently in the process of writing an essay from Shorty Dawkins talking about "Only the willing", which is the voluntary philosophy of Upton's Corners. It will be long, though. Not sure if it will be suitable for the KFP.

How about a weekly article on why Keene is a good place for freedom lovers to live, with a picture. Each week find some one thing to write about; whether it is a person or a place.

Liberty is keen on Keene/Liberty Loves Keene

I'm seriously considering a XFP franchise for Deerfield once I get moved in.

Oh that's great, Ron.  :)  Let us know how we can help get you started.

Yes, we had a brunch, but only Caleb, Russell, Kira and I were there.  Steve showed up as we were leaving.  Heading out to the courthouse to repair some potholes here in a minute.

How about releasing it in chapters? Put one manageable chunk in each issue.

I will first get all my thoughts in one essay, then figure out how to break it up. It's already 6 handwritten pages, and I have just begun.

Oh, I've been working on just that.  The editor of The Voluntaryist is giving me some articles.

That would be a "______ Free Press" franchise.

We were thinking of how best to do this for you. How many copies would you want to print for your area?

I have no idea. I will certainly need to become more acquainted with the area first.

I was thinking mostly of sharing statewide news items and perhaps web stuff.

Yea you could also use some of our articles and then throw in some letters from your area. :)

It would seem that going to different businesses looking for paper placement would be a great way to get to know the area.

It has been for us.  We'd never even been to a lot of these little towns around here.
