If you build it, they will come—insights into our newsroom

Wow—what a two weeks it has been.
The last two weeks have been a rollercoaster, uphill battle and triumph all wrapped into one, and honestly, my head is still spinning a bit. To start, the first edition of Valley Sentinel is out, and that is such a triumph. I know my job is to be a writer, but I find myself at a loss for words to express just how excited I am.

We believe in our readers

There is a difference between an editorial and a news story. There is a difference between taking a position and impartially presenting others’ positions. In an editorial, we believe our community is best served by a common sense position being taken that inspires action and fosters solutions. In a news story, it’s our duty to report on the actions that are taken, without inserting position or bias.
