New faces, new beats and … ’30 Seconds’


Brian Golden

With new reporters come new beats, as they say. And with that in mind, a big thumbs up and welcome to The Evening Sun’s latest catch, also known as Kevin Doonan. It’s been awhile since anyone occupied the cubicle adjacent to my home away from home (miss you, Ms. Stagnaro!), and Kevin is off and running as Chenango’s hometown daily’s newest cub reporter. Good luck!

As for new beats, this intrepid journalist will continue to cover the police/fire/EMS/court beat, in addition to my new duties covering New Berlin (and writing copy for The Gazette); entertainment; Otselic Valley; Gilbertsville-Mt. Upton; and Morris. Looking forward to meeting some new folks on my travels and thank God (and Trip!) my car is back in working condition.

With that said … the ever popular (and always noteworthy) “Most Ridiculous ‘30 Seconds’ Post of the Day,” brought to you by (insert dramatic theme music here) … Woman from Norwich.
“Tease all you want MFG but I know the TRUTH. Yes I was at the Blues Fest, that’s where you can find a number of their kind! You won’t be laughing come doomsday when my kitties and I are rescued!”
Which, properly written, would go like this: Tease all you want, MFG (Man from Greene? Man from Guilford? Which MFG are we talking about, anyway?), but I know the TRUTH. Yes, I was at the Blues Fest; that’s where you can find a number of their kind! You won’t be laughing come doomsday when my kitties and I are rescued.

Mmm … yeah. Teasing, men from towns that start with “G,” the TRUTH!, Blues Fest, “their kind,” laughter, doomsday and rescued kitties … this post had it all, let me tell you. Me? I have no idea what Woman from Oxford is talking about … and I think I’m ok with that.

Really, I am.
