Editor’s Notebook: 9/28/11

• Big vote day in Otselic Valley – voters are deciding on a $17M building project today. Pretty much a million bucks per OV senior, but hey.

• Brian Golden celebrated his one-year anniversary as an Evening Sun columnist in today’s edition. C’mon, he thinks it’s significant. Humor him and click on it!

• The shake, rattle n’ roll of Phase I of The Evening Sun’s roof replacement last week was replaced by the soothing din of a nuclear generator outside my office window on deadline this morning, accompanied expertly by random, piercing drills overhead. This afternoon, when I have considerably less to do? That’s right, they’re gone. Contractors.

Shawn Magrath joined our Evening Sun news team on Monday, and already has two front-page stories under his belt. Off to a good start! Still getting his feet wet, news-wise, but this afternoon he worried that he didn’t have enough to do. They’re so cute when they’re young.

Facebook comments on our website stories continue to be good and plenty – with the way people (real people!) are taking advantage of this feature, I wish we’d pulled the plug on the much-not-missed ES Forum a long time ago.
