This week, we present our annual Visitor's Guide, a collection of maps, photos and information that tourists can use to orient themselves in the Valley and find their way to the area's big attractions.
Community Events, July 2016
One of the huge benefits of writing for a weekly newspaper is time. For most of the events we cover, there is usually time enough between the actual happening and the deadline to write about it to assimilate the information. We can process first impressions with the details from our notes, ask follow-up questions, maybe find some points of comparison with past events, then sit down to write a report that gives readers the important details and possibly even entertains them.
After starting as editor here a year and a half ago, I got a lot of advice on how to be true to the community and fair in my reporting. While I remember the general themes of those conversations, and the ones from the other papers that I worked at as an editor, I couldn't tell you exactly what was said in most of them.

Every once in a while, I am thoroughly impressed with the way people get things done. They identify a problem, make a plan to solve it, get a result and, good or bad, move on.
