It’s a dead simple idea:
Cover the stuff that’s too small for our dwindling traditional media to cover…Small charities, small business, small music. The Tribune is GONE. The Suncoast News website has not been updated in months. Bay News 9 does okay, I guess…Do you know their people? By name? Do they live here? The Pasco Times had a story, today, about Whiskey Joe’s getting their variances, and a green light. However, they got a city councilwoman’s name wrong…Twice. They also reported the approved outdoor stage would be “20×300”. I’ll assume feet. But that is still not correct.
Anyway, if you’re reading this, you probably heard about the Whiskey Joe’s story the very next day…In fact, some of you got the story in real time, because Corey Cottrell LIVE STREAMED the whole city council meeting, as it happened.
So, it’s clear to me, now, that this is what you want from me…A local perspective on stories in our area. We’ll do what we can to bring you that…Along with the charities, the public events, the music (and we know we need to do better at that).
