EDITOR’S DESK: A few of my favorite things — Crestview edition

Published: Tuesday, February 25, 2014 at 04:50 PM.

Katie Tammen, the Northwest Florida Daily News’ education reporter, was tweeting from the school board’s very well attended meeting when perhaps the night’s most anticipated decisions were made. Dexter Day, one of CHS’s assistant principals, is, in fact, the Bulldogs’ next leader following Bob Jones’ retirement. Michael Martello, who previously served as a Baker assistant principal, is the Gators’ next leader, following Tom Shipp’s retirement in April.

It’s hard to explain moments like that to non-journalists, but when country music singer Brad Paisley sings, “Yeah, I live for little moments like that,” he may be singing about his wife, but I’m thinking about the second before I hit “Post” on Facebook.

I can spot a divide-and-conquer game from a mile away, whether it’s in politics, business or religion and, unfortunately, those stories comprise so much of the national media landscape. We hear enough of that stuff, so the News Bulletin’s team welcomes the opportunity to post breaking news, as it had Monday, that brings the community closer together.

We congratulate Day and Martello for their promotions, we wish them the very best, and we look forward to seeing what these leaders will add to their schools.
