We want your help

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Nevada Daily Mail publisher

We make a continuous effort at connecting with you, our readers. But often we need your help to do that.

To cover Nevada and Vernon County, it takes a Herculean effort.

We have an excellent staff and one that is dedicated to providing you with accurate, timely and useful information.

Yet it's hard for us to be everywhere.

That's where you come in.

We're asking for reader submissions.

You can help us reach and cover areas that often don't get the attention they deserve, despite our best intentions.

We're interested in your personal submissions -- weddings, engagements, anniversaries, births, graduations, military recognition, business honors and achievements, student achievements and honors, anything that's important to you and that you would like to share with the public.

We want to know about your community events and activities. We'd love to include them in our community calendar. While we may not get to your event to take photographs, we'd also like to encourage you to send us your snapshots.

With our print edition and our web site, people love to see photos of their family, friends and neighbors.

From your family reunions to citywide events, please send them to us.

We're also working to profile our social and civic clubs and organizations.

If you have new officers, members involved in a community fundraiser, notable member achievements, a visit from the district governor, or a special speaker at that week's meeting, all make good material for us.

Competitive sports and recreational events involving all ages are plentiful in our towns and schools and are important to our communities. Sports and the arts often tie us together and frequently provide the hub around which many social interactions take place.

Dance, gymnastics, band, music, drama, karate, golf, football, soccer, baseball, basketball, softball, volleyball, cross country, wrestling, track, and swimming -- the list goes on, with youth and adult leagues, clubs, middle school and high school, college, and recreational leagues all offer a creative outlet that we want to share.

We're taking this same approach with our schools, meeting with administrators as we seek to provide news and information of the dedicated educators working with our children and the various achievements, honors and recognition of students and staff.

Our area churches provide a framework for religious pursuit and socialization.

A community is often characterized by its volunteer and selfless endeavors and our churches provide a foundation for such outreach.

This is another area we'd like to expand.

We'd like to hear from you and your church, big or small, about what's going on.

If you have a new youth minister, if your church is hosting a revival or a special event, expanding your outreach or physical location, we'd like to know about it.

We attempt to list all churches in our immediate coverage area. Many churches have special services recognizing their leaders or members of their congregation. There are often events centered on the holidays that would be worth noting.

We have forms available and we'd love to hear from you, your group's achievements and goals, fundraisers, and officers.

We also have forms online at our website address, www.nevadadailymail.com that are available.

It's our intent to provide the information that you, our readers, look for and want. And you can help us.

Items such as these will help us keep everyone informed on what's happening in our communities.

If you're uncertain what we need, call Editor Lynn Wade at 667-3344.

You can e-mail our Lifestyles Editor Sharyon Duke at sduke@nevadailymail.com with your submissions. You should also copy Lynn if it's news or Eric Wade if it's sports, just to take into account people who might be out ill or on vacation, as we don't want to miss your submission.

Thanks in advance for your contributions.

Note: The nature of the Internet makes it impractical for our staff to review every comment. If you feel that a comment is offensive, please Login or Create an account first, and then you will be able to flag a comment as objectionable. Please also note that those who post comments on nevadadailymail.com may do so using a screen name, which may or may not reflect a website user's actual name. Readers should be careful not to assign comments to real people who may have names similar to screen names. Refrain from obscenity in your comments, and to keep discussions civil, don't say anything in a way your grandmother would be ashamed to read.

I think that more people would be willing to give you the info if they didn't have to pay $9.50 a month to read the on line edition. I can still read the KC Star on line for free. Your on line edition is not worth it.

It would help if the paper paid more attention to what they are printing. Rinehart Jewelry moved over three months ago, and even in todays paper you still have them at 215 West Cherry.
