EDITOR’S DESK: We enjoy our jobs when the news becomes 'more'

Published: Wednesday, November 6, 2013 at 04:05 PM.

Few things bring communities together like football. And major victories like the Bulldogs’ beating Niceville the first time since 1982, and the Gators earning their sole District 1-1A championship since 2001 are other examples of why enjoy our jobs.

This is a newspaper, so we must report on tough issues, too. Today’s editorial cartoon reflects the possibility that Crestview residents who don’t or can’t drive could lose their sole means of transportation.

Next Wednesday’s edition will focus on William Lundy, whose Confederate flag memorial in Crestview has been the subject of debate at crestviewbulletin.com.

And there’s more to come.

We can’t ignore those issues, but let’s take some of the goodwill we built while covering the other stories, and bring similar compassion and understanding of diverse viewpoints as these debates escalate.
