Starting this Saturday, June 12, the Sun will host a table at the Sierra County Farmer’s Market at Ralph Edwards Park in Truth or Consequences. During the pandemic, the editorial team has literally been chained to our desks, and we are delighted to finally be able to get out of our home offices and talk with our readers and members of the public.
Market hours every Saturday through the end of October are from 8:30 to 11 a.m., and this Saturday only chief reporter Kathleen Sloan, Sierra County Commission reporter Debora Nicoll, summer intern Luis Rios and I will all be present. (On subsequent Saturdays, Kathleen and Luis will be staffing the table.)
Please drop by and say hi. Just look for our banner with the Sun’s logo and our new tagline: “Watching out for your interests.”
We’d love to hear what you think about our mission, as expressed in the tagline, and how well you think we’re doing. Suggestions and criticisms are equally welcome. Be sure to ask us about major stories we’re working on and a nifty series of free programs called “Chill Out Fridays” that the Sun will host in the fall.
On hand at the table will be complimentary copies of two recent “Top Stories” for folks who may have missed these articles. And we’ll be selling collectible/giftable postcards with iconic images of Sierra County taken by Sun editorial contributor Robert Galbraith, a former newswire photojournalist. If you’d like to support the Sun’s ongoing operation by purchasing an email alerts subscription or making a donation, we can absolutely help you with that.
Hope to see you there!
