I have always been a huge fan of the Daily Globe. I look forward to reading it before I begin my day’s activities. I even paid for a three-month subscription for a friend of mine whose grandson was an outstanding MCC athlete so she could read articles and see pictures of him in the sports section.
My first reaction when the news came out that the Globe was going to cut back to two days a week was anger, and I planned to cancel my subscription. After some time, a feeling of empathy for the staff at the Globe took over. What wonderful writers and photographers you have! And I would miss what they have to share, so I will continue my subscription, even if it only comes twice a week.
I’m sure there are many others of my generation who are not comfortable with the new technology, so we will be left behind. I would like to think that community of Worthington will miss having a source of information to cover the many activities that are going on and deserve coverage. Even as a non-resident, I’m always interested in reading about what’s going on in the school, city, county and other areas of the community.
We still have several area newspapers being printed, and it seems really strange that a city the size of Worthington can’t support a printed paper.
Good luck to all of you - Joni, Ryan, Julie, Jane, Doug, Gretchen, Roberta, Tim and many, many more (past and present) who have brightened my days.
And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention our faithful delivery people whose income will be affected.
