A day in the life of a newsie

One of my most favorite parts of my job is handing out papers at local events. I like to walk through the crowd, displaying a copy of the paper and say to people: "Copy of the local paper?"

Most of the time people are happy to receive it. Sometimes there is a cheery response of "Oh, I already read that one."

And Saturday was a triple header.  

Thinking Forward

In a few short weeks, a new study of the Upper Delaware will be released. Entitled "Making Connections: Roots of Prosperity in NY & PA's Upper Delaware River Region. (Two presentations are scheduled for October 11.  One in Hancock in the morning, and the second one in Honesdale, PA in the afternoon, details below.)

Rules of Engagement

I have often thought that our editorial staff meetings could be live-streamed. I find the conversations stimulating.

Yesterday we were talking about a letter that arrived via the mail humorously responding to the Adolph Hitler quote that we ran on August 16.

What a legacy!

When I arrived in 1978, Narrowsburg’s Main Street was in decline. I have a vivid memory of a women’s shop that Betty Kelly vigilantly ran.  In the window was a woman’s half bust adorned with a Maidenform Cross-Your-Heart Bra. To this then 22-year-old rather boyish young woman, it looked forlorn.

Sold — to Bidder Number 455

There’s a first time for everything!  And for me, this week, it was participating in the Wayne County Junior 4-H Livestock Sale.

The livestock auction is the culmination of hard work by 4-H members in the raising of an animal and it is a wonderful, supportive atmosphere.

Reflecting the Whole

I had the honor this week to facilitate a board retreat for the Living Legacy Project. (I have been facilitating this working board retreat for the last three years and am grateful to the amazing staff at The River Reporter who makes it possible for me to leave for a few days and do this ministry.)

An Emerging Landscape

I, like many others I am sure, go to fairs and festivals to experience the food. So you can imagine that I was all in when my husband Stephen suggested that we attend the Sullivan County Latin Festival on Sunday afternoon, July 29.
