PI announces new Opinion page schedule

Editor's Note

Good morning readers,

This week marks the start of some changes to the columns appearing on the Post Independent’s Opinion page. The intent is to bring more balance to the page through the course of each week, with an emphasis on local voices.

One such local voice is James Kellogg of New Castle, a new conservative columnist. His column, “Right Angles,” will start tomorrow. Please join me in welcoming Mr. Kellogg, who has a very clear writing style and a thoughtful take on the issues of the day.

Readers have probably already noticed that the Post Independent is once again publishing editorials, and we have revived the longstanding “My Side” column, which is an opportunity for readers to submit longer-form opinion essays.

These items and our local columnists are now slated to appear on a predictable schedule, which I will share with you.

The intent is to create a balance between conservative and liberal columnists, create dedicated slots for My Side and the Post Independent’s editorial, and keep you entertained with our local humor and lifestyle columnists.

Here’s what you can expect:

Monday: My Side columns submitted by readers and other guest commentators, with columns from the Writers on the Range when we have no My Side columns queued up.

Tuesday: Conservative local columnist James Kellogg’s “Right Angles” will appear the first and third Tuesday, while conservative local columnist Ross Talbott’s “Out On A Limb” will appear the second and fourth Tuesday.

Wednesday: The Post Independent’s editorial will appear along with April Clark’s humor column, “April in Glenwood.”

Thursday: Liberal local columnist Hal Sundin’s “As I See It” will appear the first and third Thursday, while liberal local columnist Mary Boland’s “What Do We Really Want?” will appear the second and fourth Thursday.

Friday: The Post Independent’s editorial will appear along with Heidi Rice’s humor column, “Fried Rice.”

Saturday: Derek Franz’s exploration of the outdoor life, “Open Space,” will appear the second and fourth Saturday, while Alison Osius’ column about sports, family and raising two boys will appear on the third Saturday. On the first and fifth Saturdays, we’ll run Writers on the Range columnists.

Sunday: This is the one day of the week we will be running syndicated national columnists. Most Sundays you will read Kathleen Parker’s conservative wit and observations. When Ms. Parker takes a break, we’ll sub in the liberal Tina Dupuy.

We hope you enjoy this lively mix of opinion in your daily Glenwood Springs Post Independent.
