Opinion: Welcoming 2014 at your community newspaper
GJ Free Press Columnist
Greetings and welcome to 2014. I hope everyone had a great New Year and is excited to get 2014 rolling. I am sure that many of you have made your New Year’s resolutions and will be waking up a little earlier, going to the gym, or any of the other promises we make to ourselves for the New Year; at least I will be. One of my resolutions is to make this column a regular piece of the Free Press.
I often get asked, what is the Free Press? In short, we are your community paper. We see our job as providing you, our reader, with interesting content that you want and need. To do this we need your help. Let us know what you liked, what you didn’t and what we can do better.
Since 2003, or 11 years now, the Free Press has always been focused on covering the people of Grand Junction. You can get regional and national news from anywhere, any website, any paper and any station. But if you want to read about how the people of our town live, work and play, we are here for you.
Throughout the year I will be using this space to discuss ideas, as well as to develop new ideas for moving forward. It will also serve as a space to share opinions and thoughts. As with any column, please feel free to send us a letter to the editor if you liked it, hated it, or want to share your opinion.
Ben Rogers is general manager of the GJ Free press. He may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
