THANKS NEWTON - December 8, 2005

I hope the readers appreciate the Chronicle for last week!

Newton was on medical leave and the remainder of the staff had to share in getting it to press.

   Lisa and Bill Bailey were the leaders, trying to get the right ratio of reading material and advertising. Then there were all of the small spaces between to be filled in. Lisa would hurry back to her office to find more articles and make sure the photos were ready. Headlines had to be composed. All of this had to be waxed and put into place, straight. It was 1:30 on Wednesday morning when it was finished. 

    I was there to transport it to Bill Morris' vehicle so he could get it to the printers in Spencer by 6:00 AM. This was a valuable document! We both were warned not to let anything slip or slide. Bill Bailey accompanied him to take care of any last minute catastrophes and insert the advertising supplements. They did the drop offs to the stores along Rt. 33 on the return trip. Lisa met them at Arnoldsburg to take the papers to the West Fork area.

       Maureen, Bill Bailey, Bill Morris and Penny Nichols then got the bulk of the papers ready for mailing. Maureen delivered them to the stores in Grantsville, Brooksville and Big Springs.

     We really are grateful to our staff for their cooperation during a stressful time. They worked well together and kept their good spirits even though I knew not to say too much to them in the later hours.

    We also realize now all that Newton handles in his quiet way. He edits everything for the last time, before it goes in the paper. He is a stickler for all photos being identified. He does the layout and paste up, takes the paper to the printer, waits for it, inserts supplements and delivers on the return trip. After returning to Grantsville, he helps get the paper ready for mailing. Newton is also the sports editor.

     Newton has been with the Calhoun Chronicle over twenty years.  Before joining our paper, he worked with his father on the Grantsville News. While in high school, he was statistician all four years. He was also advertising manager for the Clarion, and manager for basketball, football and baseball. 

Thank you, Newton, we appreciate you!
