Editor’s Notebook: 11/17/10

• A major portion of my day was derailed by a company event, but in a good way. Snyder Communications held an Employee Appreciation Day at the Canasawacta Country Club on Wednesday (I posted a bunch of Frank Speziale’s photos on Facebook). I think what people may not often realize is that The Evening Sun is part of a larger local family of companies that also includes The Pennysaver (in its many incarnations) and Circulars Unlimited. The Evening Sun’s crew is of course by far the hardest-working and best-looking of the bunch, but then again I may be a bit biased.

• Congratulations to Melissa Stagnaro, chosen by her peers as The Evening Sun’s Employee of the Year. Melissa’s made quite a name for herself as an intrepid reporter in just a few short years with us, and has grown to be an indispensable member of our team. A well-deserved honor, to be sure.

• As I was away from the office for most of the day, The Evening Sun’s online Forum remains closed. Perhaps I’ll relent tomorrow. I’m just praying that the offending parties are using this time away from their keyboards to consider how to behave like adults.
