Read this story. It’s a good story, but not ONE PERSON is quoted. Unless some person straps on some testicular fortitude (at least for the time I am interviewing them) there won’t be a story on Valley and Bluff.
This is what bugs me about working in newspapers in general and Peoria specifically. Everyone has great ideas about how to do things better, or very specific complaints about what is wrong. Ask them if they can be quoted, and no one wants to get involved.
And when no one seems to listen to their suggestions, they bitch.
If someone, anyone, associated with this effort wants to talk to me, send me an email.
