It seems like it would make a lot of sense for all the local districts to share the same, or at least a similar, calendar. In that way they could pool resources more effectively. It would also make it easier for people who work in one community but have school kids in another.
I agree that opinion pieces are often watered down as are some articles. In a small town, it becomes an issue of being politically correct so that advertising and interest remains stable. There is a unspoken need to not rock "the boat". One example of this was the food critic piece (that mysteriously went away). There weren't any reviews of the restaurants in town that need to be called out on bad food and bad service. This is a newspaper after all; the goal is to tell the truth, present the facts, and allow opinions in opinion pieces. Often opinions are shared.
I like the new look and the additions of the book and restaurant reviews. I also have no problems viewing the e-edition and love it. One thing I notice is that there is more space for ads lately and less taken up by valuable content. However, what we read for free has to be paid for ....
If only all news were this tame..
Funny, I remember seeing that mural more recently.....it definitely stands out. Riggios is not the first place I think of to go, but based on this review I will try it again soon. We come to town often and rarely stay in.
Loved the review- glad to see that people are starting to stop and take notice of the quality (or lack thereof) of food and service in the Boat. Diva is my favorite fowl or no fowl. I am also partial to the Steamboat Today by far. Unlike the Local, it is certain that the planning that went into the review concept did not happen over night...so I doubt the idea of flattery is merited, and restaurant reviews are not a brand new concept. I definitely like the addition!
