Editor’s Note

Dear Readers,

How about that Amanda! Kids all over the county are enjoying the Post Independent’s newest feature, “Keep Your Eye on Amanda!”

The wily raccoon has just started what will be a bundle of trouble and fun in the story series, which will run every Wednesday in the Post Independent through May 26. Today’s installment is the second in the 14-chapter story.

Classroom teachers, we also have a teacher’s guide available for you to use, with advance lessons and week-by-week help in identifying vocabulary, making connections and other skills that relate directly to the state’s educational standards.

Drop me an e-mail at hmcgregor@postindependent.com, and I’ll e-mail you the guide as an attachment.


Here’s a reminder of one change in the paper I’ve already announced, and an explanation of another change in the works.

This Friday, we will start publishing TV Times, the daily listing to evening television programs, in every day’s paper. On Fridays, we will run the Friday and Saturday listings. Sunday through Thursday, we will run that day’s listings.

The television listings will appear at the end of the Sports section, right in front of Classifieds.

If you watch television on Sunday evening but don’t have home delivery for the Post Independent, now could be a good time for you to consider our Sunday-only home delivery. It’s a bargain at $25 a year. For information, call 945-HOME, or 945-8515, ext. 199.

We are also shifting news content within the paper.

Starting next Monday, the Associated Press wire stories on state, national and world news will move back in the paper. You will find the Top News behind our Commentary section, and in front of Sports.

As it is now, we offer three pages of Local News interrupted by two pages of wire stories, followed by more local news.

The move reflects our readers’ preference to get all their local news without interruption starting on page 1. So on most days, we will offer local and regional news on pages 1-5, followed by Community News and Commentary.

All those sections are primarily local content, and that’s what makes the Post Independent different from other papers. We provide you with the news about your community that you can’t find anywhere else.

For your daily fix of state, national and world news, keep reading past the Commentary pages, and you will find a concise package of the top news of the day. It’s a fast and easy way to keep track of what’s going on in the world beyond the central Colorado mountains.

Local News is what we are all about here. If you have a news tip for us to chase, or a news item to include in the Postings or Mountain Mailbag, call us at 945-8515, ext. 537; send an e-mail to news@postindependent.com; send a fax to 945-4487; or mail or drop by a letter to our offices at 2014 Grand Ave., Glenwood Springs, CO 81601.
