Editor’s Notebook: Finale. cialis online


Jeff Genung
• Even though I broke the news on Facebook last week, Wednesday’s front page missive from our publisher, Dick Snyder, made it official – I am leaving The Evening Sun on Friday, March 15. I’ve accepted a position in communications with Chobani and while I’ll spend the next week gearing up for that amazing opportunity, I’ll spend the next 24 hours or so in a more melancholy state, leaving behind almost 23 years worth of memories with Chenango County’s Hometown Daily. It will not be an easy day.
• Most of what I have to say will be in my column tomorrow, but I thought I’d use my last Editor’s Notebook blog to answer a question a couple people have asked me this week: How many reporters have you worked with over the years? I don’t really know the exact number, so I’m going to type them out here from memory (a risky exercise in itself) and see how many I come up with … how many names do you recognize?
• First, we should qualify “reporters” as my employed staff writers. Also under my employ, though generally not counted as reporters, were photographer Frank Speziale and three sports editors – Tom Rowe, Mike King and Pat Newell.
• On to the general reporter staff, most likely not in chronological order: JoAnn Smith, Karen Bergamo, Dan Bartlett, Mary Lawrence, Heidi Rauch-Webb, Karen Wilhelm, Kathy O’Hara, Katie Fern, Dave Warren, Stacy Beaumont, Mike Hamilton, Jill Fahy, Sean Brigham, Melissa Hendricks, Mike Platta, Dan Matlack, Stacy Moreno, Barbara Hollings, Christian Vischi, Vince Keenan, Nicole Martinez, Jude Seymour, Melissa deCordova, Josh Campbell, Jeff Morse, Andrea Snyder, Mike McGuire, Todd Campbell, Jill Kraft, Jessica Lewis, Tyler Murphy, Melissa Stagnaro, Brian Golden, Julian Kappel, Shawn Magrath and my last hire, Kevin Doonan … number 36. Not exactly the 50 I’d guessed, but that’s not including the two guys who quit after three days, or the multiple stints pulled by Mike, Stacey, Christian and Tyler. Or the countless number of interns, some of whom lasted a week but several who lasted all summer. Oh, and our many faithful correspondents over the years – some we knew quite well (Tom Schwan, Jerry Weaver and Bob McNitt, all dearly departed), and others who were passing emails in the night. In any case, phew. It was a privilege to work with each and every one of you (except maybe those I fired … but even a few of them, too).
• And that’s it, folks, as far as my Editor’s Notebook blog goes. Check out the breadth of my sentimentality in tomorrow’s Page 4 column. Soon this blog will fade into the ether, and a new writer will eventually take my place. It’s been a pleasure entertaining you online. Godspeed.
