Editor’s Notebook: 6/20/11

• Back from a whirlwind trip to New York City, where I met some new friends, walked in Central Park, visited the Museum of Modern Art, ate in Hell’s Kitchen and rode the MegaBus. But best of all? The Apple Store on 5th Avenue. I have worshipped at the altar of Steve Jobs.

• Our newest Evening Sun reporter started today … Julian Kappel. I’ll let him introduce himself in a blog on evesun.com later this week, but for now we’re just starting the hazing … err, training process. Look for his byline on the front page soon.

The Evening Sun’s summer intern, Jayne Jaramillo, put together a great video of the Dairy Day parade and fairground events over the weekend … you can see it here on our Facebook page.

• So to all the naysayers who said “they” were “destroying” the gazebo in East Side Park … what do you think now? I think it looks better than ever … and even more prominently featured than it was before! They’re not done yet, of course, but I can’t wait to see the finished product. Evening Sun subscribers can check out Brian Golden’s photos of the gazebo move on Friday here.

• Speaking of photos, we’re introducing a little change here on evesun.com. From now on, the full compliment of our photos of various events will be available to subscribers (print and online) only under the orange “Photo Galleries” tab on the home page. And atop every story on the site with an attached gallery, you’ll see a camera icon – click on it and it will take you directly to the gallery. Space in the print edition is limited, so sometimes we’re only able to publish a photo or two from event – now you’ll be able to see ALL the photos we take (and Frank Speziale too!) under the Photo Galleries tab. Facebook fans, don’t worry – we’ll still publish a few from each event for free in galleries there, but you’ve got to subscribe to see them all!
