Sports con­tent could be re­placed with lo­cal

The Standard (St. Catharines) - - OPINION -

I find it in­ter­est­ing that even though there are very few sports go­ing on, the news­pa­per al­ways make sure there are two to six pages of sports.

Duh! Is this old boys think­ing? With so many peo­ple at home look­ing for things to oc­cupy the fam­ily, I would think the life­style sec­tion would be two to six pages in­stead. Print ideas teach­ers used the news­pa­per for in their classes many years ago.

Per­haps read­ers could write in ideas they are do­ing, more crafts could be elab­o­rated on, pho­tos of ac­tiv­i­ties and cre­ative­ness could be printed high­light­ing lo­cal pho­to­graphs, recipes for one or two peo­ple or a fam­ily, games for chil­dren to play. Older read­ers could write in about games they played when they were young that did not in­volve elec­tron­ics.

Think out­side the box and be a leader. In­clude more lo­cal con­tent. Sandie Timco St. Catharines
