Four weeks in 'Review'

October 07, 2009 - Four weeks with my head in the editor's hat here at the Review. I've met lots of new people, heard some interesting stories and seen some interesting things. A giant, fire-breathing dragon, for example. And dragons—approximately the size and shape of high school boys—who appear to breathe fire when they, say, take a 42-12 homecoming victory on a chilly, miraculously rain-free Friday night.

It's been fun. The little details—please don't say the word "Tuesday" to me—are getting a easier. Slowly.

A few things you might want to know: The 'Public Safety' reports can now—and forever more, I hope—be found on page 12. Yes, your Oakland County Sheriff's Office deputy reports are still there, just expanded to provide a little more detail. We'll be looking at doing the same for the village reports in the months ahead.

'Around Town' is bigger and better, too. You'll find it on page 11, chock full of places to go, people to see and things to do. Want to list something? Call, email, fax or stop in and let us know about your event. Send a pigeon if you have to.

Have an event you want us to cover? Please let us know as far in advance as possible, and we'll absolutely be there if we can. But since we're an editorial staff of two and one-fifth—Megan, me, and our 7-hour-a- week intern, Sarah—we invite you to send us your own photos, as well.

Coffee? One of our sister papers, The Citizen, began hosting a community coffee hour about a year-and-a-half-ago. Everyone's invited for an informal, once-a-month get-together to chat about everything and nothing.

I went out to join them a few weeks back, and liked what I saw. So lets do it. Details to come—stay posted.

A few things I'd like to know: What's your story? What bugs you? Who's your unsung Lake Orion hero? What can we do better here at the paper. Let it fly—no use going half-way.

Call me at 248-693-8331. Lemme know what you think.
