EDITOR'S DESK: What's your opinion?

Published: Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at 11:13 AM.

Today, you opened the newspaper and probably noticed something different.

Your opinion matters, so today’s Crestview News Bulletin features a development a month in the making: a regular source that keeps the conversation going and includes the following sections you can expect:

·         From the Editor’s Desk: a column that usually will give readers a glimpse “behind the curtain” on news-selection decisions or otherwise would add substance to our A1 stories.

·         Word on the Street: Weekly, our news staff will pound the pavement, asking residents for their input on our question of the week.

·         A local columnist. Currently, we will run commentary from a familiar face, Bob Allen, but we encourage guest columnists and talented writers to weigh in on local issues or provide a nice slice of life for Crestview, Baker, Holt, Milligan or Laurel Hill.  We prefer non-elected officials, average Joes and Jeanettes who don’t usually appear in the paper.

·         Hubbub: a collection of the most thoughtful or humorous Facebook or Twitter comments we received the prior week. This also is the space for any letters to the editor.

The Opinion section isn’t new to the News Bulletin. Upon checking the paper’s archives, I noticed that this once-regular section comprising several regular features evolved and evolved and evolved until, well, there wasn’t much of a section.
