EDITOR'S DESK: Visual commentary now anchors the Opinion page

Published: Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at 03:33 PM.

We revamped the Opinion page — well, resurrected it — in August 2012, but only recently, I believe, has the page reached its maximum potential.

I always envisioned A4 as the place North Okaloosa residents could call their own. We in the newsroom monopolize enough of the A section with our words, bylines and mugshots, which is odd since you, our readers, buy the paper and inspire the stories in it.

So we tried several things to drive that message — that we care about what you think — home. In time, more letters to the editor started trickling in and the page gradually evolved, but something always seemed missing. Something that anchors the page. 

Then, a couple of months ago, we met Crestview resident Ryan Massengill, and things started to crystallize.

Ryan Massengill is the man behind the News Bulletin's editorial cartoons. This week's cartoon depicts the need to give to North Okaloosa charitable organizations when Christmas shopping.
