My point, for me the Daily Voice is becoming more of a regional news source as did many other local print news outlets as they were gobbled up and became parts of larger groups without local "skin in the game" while maintaining a local name. I suspect at least in the North Salem edition this is because you lost a local reporter who has not been replaced.
As suspected, this story is being covered completely on NPR this morning so needing The Daily Voice to send me the press release is not an effective use of resources.
My inbox this morning has comments about this article from Norwalk and Stamford, CT and Cortlandt, NY. That is not a few towns away, that is a 50 mile spread.
What I was looking for at the North Salem Daily Voice is North Salem news: do we have a national renowned astrophysicist speaking in town tomorrow; will I be able to read about the harvest festival this weekend; what was said at the 911 ceremony; update, how are the new police station, highway department and court buildings coming; where is the picture of the bridge replacement? These are the details a "local' reporter brings us with images.
Prior to finding the North Salem Daily Voice I was contemplating creating a local news blog or FaceBook site to collaborate news stories. At this point I get more local information from our supervisor at https://www.facebook.com/groups/NorthSalemNYinfoMember/
- Lost in North Salem, Looking for local news. View Comment
Give it a break, this is not reporting, this is repeating,,,,, we already listen to NPR and read the Times, we want local news in a local post,,,,,,, by: "The Daily Voice" ? that is not even a reporter who wants to put their name on the article and take credit,,,, oh, wait, that is not writing, it is cut and paste.
Time to find Michael Nocella, where is he reporting? Where does he live? He is not writing for North Salem. Where is our past reporter Katherine Pacchiana? She did a great job and was always seen lurking around town with her trusty camera and note pad, a good old fashioned town reporter!!! Please bring Katherine back - Thanks. View Comment
maybe Michael Nocella can do some investigative reporting for us, look at the tax map and survey, is it on town property? What is the address so we can look for ourselves? Keeping in mind, the typical property line is 10' or so onto your front lawn – town or state ownership not an easement. You clean, cut the grass and clear the snow so you can get past it and it then looks good, you don't have to do it, the town will trim the overgrowth as it impedes the roadway. I think the reality is, if allowed by code, yard signs need to be on your property not on town property. The sign looks like it is only a few feet off the pavement so may not be on private property but the signs near the police barracks are set back, probably on private property. Who is getting the tape measure out? View Comment
