It was the first time I haven't bought the Bucks Ad in ages this week - been too busy to get out much!!

I'm always impressed they manage to receive sufficient leads and write enough info to fill a paper every week - and still have time for a cheeky pint in the white hart  or red lion.

When was the last time you saw an Advertiser
reporter in the pub?

Moni and 'Snooper' have not been reporters with the
Buckinghamshire Advertiser for four months.
Plus two people drinking at their local during the
weekend doesn't count.

He is the editor, he is not a reporter.
You will not find Ben, Luke or myself in the pub
during working hours because we do not have time
and eat our lunches at our desks.
I felt it was important to respond to this myth about
journalists in the pub, because the three of us would
not get the paper written if we didn't put the time in.

How's his editing after a few beers? Is it possible to tell which stories have been edited after a few libations at the pub?  

Anyway, I am always in awe of people who can put a newspaper together, especially as there are so few of you. Keep up the good work and I hope somebody who moans on here, one day, takes the time to phone you so you can go on the record with them.

I used to be with it. But then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems scary and weird.

I am sure the staff at the Bux Ad would appreciate
that. It is very easy to moan and complain. I am sure
the reporters do an excellent job with somewhat
limited resources. After all, the newspaper "belongs"
to its readers. So more people should get involved
and give them stories rather than worrying how
much time they spend in the pub or not.

There is lots going on in the area and if people want
to see particular things in the newspaper they need
to get in contact.

I am sure the offices in The Vale are fully equipped
with computers, notepads and pens.

However, I suspect the one thing they don't have is a
crystal ball.

Indeed Pedro If we had a crystal ball our job
would be so much easier. Sadly I've never found a
working one.

And thank you also for your comments DanW. I still
have the day to look forward to when I get to chat
properly to a forum member about a story, on the
record.
