    Sounds like there's a REAL lack of coverage.

    Sounds like someone needs to work smarter, not harder.

    If he was working smarter, he wouldn't be working there ... :)

    Plan of action:
    1. Coverage of "youth and travel organizations" should dropped immediately, or, at best, submitted only.

    Does he have a sock puppet here?

    If this guy was here in Kansas, the first thing I'd tell him is that it's about time to drop coverage of about 18 to 20 of those high schools. But I don't know anything about Port Huron except that the town has about 30,000 people and it appears to be near Detroit, so I'd guess that's not possible.

    So then the next thing would be, "Is your resume up to date?"

    I agree with the guy’s gripes.

    But it’s poor form to throw out a woe-is-me tweet. No one wants to read how someone else’s job sucks.

    I mean, that’s the price of admission when you naively agree to work for Gannett

    Figure out which teams "spark joy" and dump the rest.

    Only cover the teams that lose.

    How many of those 17 complaints come from paying subscribers?

    In my experience with coverage complaints, it’s often the same people who ask me why we put some content behind a hard paywall.
