This is the first week in which The Orion has implemented the decision to shrink from a four-section newspaper to a two-section newspaper. Financial issues are forcing us to do more of what we have begun trying to do – adapt to the times and embrace the Web.
We are lucky to still have all five sections intact and in print: news, sports, arts, features, opinion. I also still copy edit just as much material, some of which will be presented as online exclusives.
We’re all experiencing some growing pains as we learn to adjust to the sudden need for significant changes, but it can be said that I have fallen in love with this newspaper and that, as a staff, we will continue to work hard, release strong news content and roll with the punches.
