Although I havenít been on Facebook since May 2011, I understand there was some discussion on that social media outlet about the lack of coverage of Craver Middle School sports. Although I have done it in the past, it might be time to give you a look into how we determine what will, and wonít, be published in the Greenhorn Valley View. Hopefully this will ease some of the anxiety of those who expressed their concern.

1.) Talk to us, not to Facebook. Had someone not come to me we would not have been aware of your concerns. Our office number is (719) 676-3401. Normally, someone is there from 9 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Monday thru Wednesday and 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Thursday. My cell phone is (719) 214-3512 and is on the recording you will get if you call the office and we are not there.

2.) Subscribe to or advertise in the paper. Those people who help us pay the bills have better access, and our ear, for better consideration.

3.) Make us aware of the event. Things we donít know are going on, won't be covered. I will say that we have neither the staffing nor the room in the paper to cover middle school sports as fully as we do Rye High School sports. We do appreciate when someone brings the information to us. The space in the paper is prioritized but your chances of getting local, newsworthy items into the paper is increased if you bring it to our attention.

4.) As a subscriber, fill out the form you get and return it every time you renew. One of the last people who filled out and submitted a form suggested we publish contact information of relevant politicians. We thought that was a good idea and we publish that list periodically.
