Hard to know what’s going on with our local newspaper

Editor’s note: I fired up TheUnion.com on Tuesday, November 25, to see what was going on back home, and came across this article from November 25. The first sentence reads: “Tomorrow, Saturday November 29 at the Safeway on Sutton Way in Grass Valley …” In fact, tomorrow is Wednesday, November 26 — at least here in New York City.

  1. Thought you’d all like to read the response from Jim Hemig (this one is publishable): “You sure are mean spirited. You are completely the opposite of the kind of people I like to work with in this town.”

    Instead of writing a response like this, why doesn’t Jim just fix the embarrassing mistake. A rather arrogant tone to cover up incompetence. “He’s so fancy …”

  2. Guess what? It’s been fixed: “Staffers from The Union will be ringing the bell in support of the Salvation Army Saturday, Nov. 29 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Safeway on Sutton Way in Grass Valley.”

    You are welcome Jim. Glad that didn’t make it into the print edition. Phew. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. “Prefect”! From The Union’s Facebook page today:

    “Hemig photo of the day: Local ingredients and a local recipe from a local newspaper. Prefect combo. Thanks Julia Stidham!”
