The newspaper business is still thriving, at least here in our little corner of the world
September 16, 2009 - Cheryl Clarke
The flurry of phone calls from readers missing their Sunday paper following Saturday's problem with the Sun-Gazette presses made me realize that my job is secure, as long as I keep serving the people of Tioga County by staying on top of the news they want to read about, but I definitely don't have to worry about losing my job due to lack of readership. When I didn't get my Sunday paper, I thought maybe there was some problem with the delivery person's vehicle, and I thought I would eventually get it sometime that day. Little did I know it would be 6:45 p.m. before she pulled up to my mailbox with my paper. I was really looking forward to Sunday's paper because I knew it had my story about Babb Creek on the front page, along with a large photo I took at the ribbon cutting last week. I almost called the office when the paper hadn't arrived by late morning, but decided I would wait and see what happened. I guess several other readers weren't as patient as I was because from what I understand according to the interview in Wednesday's paper with Mr. Oravec, our publisher, there were plenty of calls to make up for mine. I would like to thank the readers for their support and for letting the paper know that they were disappointed not to have their Sunday paper to read with thier morning coffee, like I enjoy doing. It fills me with great confidence to know that my job, at least for the time being, is secure, and that is something I do not take lightly. Thanks again and God Bless.
