A word on print reduction announcement

(Continued)

Tonawanda News — In that spirit, I’m jumping into the pool. I’ve been on Twitter for some time but never felt the need to advertise it in the paper. But readers deserve as many ways to interact with the editor of their local paper as possible. So I invite you to join me on Twitter: @EricRDuVall. You can also follow several of our reporters and editors, and the paper’s official Twitter account, @tonanews and sports account, @tonanewssports.

There will also be improvements in our news presentation in print. Too many people feel overwhelmed by the flood of information in this 24/7 instant news cycle world. The daily newspaper gives us an opportunity to pause and reflect on what the news means.

Starting in May, the Sunday paper will provide readers with more depth and context on those issues and developments important to our market. It will feature stories from all of our writers on local government, the schools your children attend, public safety and the local economy.

We hope you spend a significant amount of time reading and enjoying the Sunday paper as well as the print editions we produce the other days of the week.

Now, I’d like to conclude with something we can’t say often enough: Thank you. We sincerely appreciate the support of our readers and advertisers. You are what make this paper relevant.

Yes, we face challenging times. But I have faith that the communities we serve will continue to value and support our local journalism.

  • duvall, eric.jpg DUVALL: On reading and the lack thereof It was surprising to me a few weeks ago when a friend asked a group of us to estimate how many books we have each read over the last five years. The English teacher said 200 and he far and away led the pack. I was probably the median and my number was 20-25.

  • duvall, eric.jpg DUVALL: Conflict in Ukraine now a concern of global proportions It seems increasingly clear Ukrainian separatists, with the help from the Russian military, are responsible for the tragedy. They, of course, have denied it. They've also denied access to the crash site to international investigators seeking to recover the dead and determine what happened. That's not something the innocent party does.

  • ADAMCZYK: Personal development, rendered in steel Accepting the premise that everyone needs to fill the same amount of time every day (24 hours, every day), some people use theirs rebuilding things, tangible things, and thus fulfill a few intangible goals.

  • WALLACE: Festival season is underway Summer is the season of fairs and festivals. From Canal Fest in the Tonawandas to the Allentown Art Festival and Italian Heritage Festival in Buffalo to the Erie County Fair in Hamburg, the Western New York area has no shortage of things to do with the family over the summer.

  • duvall, eric.jpg DUVALL: King George's abdication leaves many questions I've covered Niagara County politics for 10 years and it's been a fascinating -- and often infuriating -- experience. With the news the man known with equal parts respect and cynicism as "King George" is walking away it's about to get more interesting.

  • Canal Fest, here we come This column should be titled "Roads and Streets." First of all, Meadow Drive is finally open. Although it took very long to be completed, it's beautiful. Riding by the other day brought into focus how many people will use this to cut across town. One less thing for residents to complain about.

  • ADAMCZYK: Homesick for someplace I've never been You stumble over things that make you wonder. I do, at least, and the latest is one of those advertising artifacts from yesteryear that encourage me to ponder what's changed and what never will.
