Some good news, for a change

    After the past year or so spent worrying about losing staff, losing staff, then worrying about more complaints from readers and getting more complaints from readers, I'm finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel in my neck of the world.

    We hired back a part-time photographer, are getting new camera equipment for our photographers and the sports department, cut down to two from a previous staff of three, is gaining a part-time freelancer.

    Is it what it was? No. But there's a bounce-back happening as a result of the decreased content our readers saw after the cuts. Management is listening to them. I'm grateful for that.

    I fear we'll be in the minority, but there's such little good news out there for our industry that I thought I'd share it.

    I've heard that advertising is picking up somewhat at my place. Of course, I haven't heard about re-hires or restoring pay cuts.
  3. I think the most amazing part of that is that management is istening to those who complain that quality is down. It means your shop still cares about the product. Cudos to them, it taint dat way in other shops.
