If you’re among those who might want to share their ideas with others, put together at least three proposed columns of 500 words or so each and send them my way. E-mail — firstname.lastname@example.org — works best, but the U.S. Postal Service still delivers letters to me c/o Commercial-News, P.O. Box 787, Danville IL 61834-0787.
We can’t promise we’ll use every submission, but we will read every one. Who knows? Maybe the next Red Smith is out there waiting to bleed a little.
Like many people — young and old — I plan to see the newest film in the Harry Potter series, “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.”
The story has progressed to the point where Potter — a young wizard engaged in a battle against evil for the two of you who might not know — is a young man.
As a teenager, the Potter character learns as he goes along, trying new things to see whether they work.
Running a newspaper is a lot like that these days. We’re always looking at what we present to readers — both in print and on our Web site — and considering ways to make it better.
We hope readers like a few of the recent tweaks we’ve made in our content. We hope to add more in-depth stories in the weeks ahead as well as a greater variety of topics covered both by our in-house staff and other sources.
Let me know what you think.
As always, thanks for reading the Commercial-News.
