Mom always told me not to boast. So I won’t.
Instead, I’ll make an observation: In today’s issue we’ve assembled 104 pages of local news, including 14 pages on area high school graduations, a summertime guide to fun throughout Addison County and the region, and page after page of local news. We have editorial pages commenting on state and national affairs, town-by-town news, feature stories about local people, crime logs, sports, music and art reviews, fantastic photos and news by our town correspondents. Earlier this week, on Monday, we printed 36 pages of solid local reporting. Combined that’s 140 pages this week.
That doesn’t mean times in the media world aren’t changing. We also produce a web site at www.addisonindependent.comthat has been named best in the state three years running for non-dailies and was named best-in-New England this past year for non-dailies. You do have to keep up with the times and meet new challenges.
But print and the Addy Indystill works in Addison County in its traditional format because we have a dedicated and hard-working staff of 20 who focus on covering the news to the best of our ability; and we offer good value and service to our advertisers and customers.
No need to change the formula here. Just saying.
