One reason for beginning this news section, and the area of coverage, was the realization that even though the national news media now have unlimited resources, the quality of news reports have degraded. Why? I contend laziness, it is too easy to ’subscribe to AP, then cut and paste Your favorite political and financial pet causes.’ This is no way to edit to an intelligent audience. Meanwhile, local news is being cutback or avoids reporting on the sponsors...a 'keep alive and don't bite the hand that feeds You' mentality.
Well, it has been a year, and so far so good. The daily operations are going to be scaled back a bit. The new publishing schedule is changing to a tri-weekly newspaper, in order to do more in-depth reporting on the local level. Meanwhile, the focus of the newspaper
will remain on important issues of the day, like renewable energy, education, health and California politics.

Spring Cleaning and New Designs
Well, it's time for spring cleaning, so I decided to try something new on the website(s) in the design department.
So far, while everything is running smoothly, it is taking some time to do and the news may suffer a little. Also, more in-depth articles and editorials will begin to make more appearences in the coming months, so check back often and thanks for Your interest.
Two Month long hiatus -
Two Month long hiatus - The news website www.amadorcountynews.org is now back online after a two month long hiatus by the managing editor. Fortunately, it was a very slow news cycle, so I decided to take some new classes online. I hope to write more about it later, but for now, there is more investigating to be done.
