Our staff now has seven weeks of the combined Atchison County Mail under their belt. Many of you have questioned how the new paper is going and have answered that it is going well. Each week I try to look at the paper and discern what should be where. In some cases we are trying to do things the way they have always been done. That can be good, or as I found out this week, it can also be bad. Questions were raised about our coverage of the honor roll for all three schools. Sponsorships for each school’s honor roll were run as they had been previously.
I appreciate the fact that it was brought to our attention that readers would like a more uniform look to these items for a fair representation of Atchison County. We will continue to strive to improve each week. Please email amail@rpt.coop if you have an idea for a story or an event you would like covered.
