If we're really part owners, then can we abolish those annoying Hanson ads?

I muted the automatic audio, zapped an errant roll-over, and fought through the inevitable Hanson ad. It felt like an Alabama pensioner was eyeballing me, so I reached for my bug spray.

By that time, I'd entirely forgotten what it was I'd come to read. Ah, wait ... there it is: CHEERS AND JEERS — For Dec. 29-30.


... to our loyal customers and readers.

As we close out 2012, I wanted to thank our readers and advertisers for their loyalty and commitment at a time when there are many media and other outlets competing for your time and attention.

There are frustrations that come with any job, and working at a daily newspaper can be stressful. One reason for that is that people care so much about what goes in the paper. It’s important to them, and to us. The community often feels like part owners of the News and Tribune.

The good part of that is that people do care, and we strive every day to reward that loyalty with the best coverage around of Clark and Floyd counties.

Thank you and happy New Year.
