Sorry for just now getting on this topic folks. I simply just missed it.
As for the comics, we lost our vendor and have not been able to secure another one at a cost that is manageable. We still have comics running daily in the News-Telegram - but I do understand that they are not the same (i.e., not in color or in their own section). I hate that this has happened because the comics have been a part of this newspaper ever since I can remember.
As for the missed papers, I really wish you would email or call me when that becomes a problem for you. We can't do anything about it if we don't know. You let me know there is a problem and I'll do everything I can to fix it.
As for the paper itself, I have to disagree with a couple of the comments. The paper - to me - is as good as it has ever been content-wise. There are more local stories in the paper right now than we have had in years ... it was a goal of ours to improve in that area and I think we have. Do we have some typos? Yes --- all papers do. You work with this many words on a daily basis and you will make a mistake here and there. We try hard to keep that from happening -- but it happens. As for the "old" news on the editorial page -- we try to give our readers a sampling during the week of what other newspapers are "talking" about. We also like to offer different opinions about certain topics. As far as the editorial cartoons go, we have to use syndicated cartoons just like other newspapers our size. If we got one in there that was too "old," I do apologize.
If you have ideas, thoughts or problems drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I'll do my best to fix the problem and I'll certainly take the ideas. I email with a couple of posters of this board now and then and we usually get things straightened out.
Thanks for "listening"
