Talk of the Town - - Neighbourly Notes -

“I have been work­ing at Talk of the Town for al­most 11 years and in that time I have seen many staff mem­bers come and go, but there has been a core of long-serv­ing staff that have given this busi­ness its fam­ily feel – a place where you feel at home, care about each other and are able to work to­gether well, each bring­ing our var­i­ous gifts and skills that fit to­gether to bring out a great prod­uct,” said TotT news edi­tor Houzet.

“In those 11 years I have also seen how this pa­per has grown and de­vel­oped to keep up with changes in tech­nol­ogy and to bet­ter serve its com­mu­nity. Some­times it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks, but we have adapted and all do our best.

“One of the best im­pres­sions I have of the im­pact our news­pa­per has on the com­mu­nity is when peo­ple come up to me in the mall, or the street, or at a func­tion or church meet­ing, and tell me how much they ap­pre­ci­ate TotT, how they read it from front to back and of­ten men­tion­ing the opin­ion piece I write ev­ery week. It is en­cour­ag­ing to know we are well read and liked in our com­mu­nity.” Jon
