JOSEPH J. KOLB is the publisher of The Gallup Herald in Gallup, NM. And the way Kolb tells it in this piece for Editor & Publisher, life at his paper is always busy…and never dull.
In Kolb’s article, he mentions Shane Scoggins, publisher of the Franklin County Citizen in Lavonia, Ga. Scoggins tells a story that epitomizes community newspapering: “I was covering a story where I had to get into a pigpen to take a photo. After the assignment I then had to cover a swanky Republican Party fundraiser, which I went to still with gunk on my shoes.”
An enlightening article…especially for those of you at community newspapers.
