More than mediocre

I was wondering where old Bill Bauer was (SDN, Nov. 10).I noticed he didn’t submit his almost daily letter to the editor ensuring that everyone in the county knew where he stood on every issue. What is so mediocre about SDN? Perhaps Bauer could give us some examples, but national and international news should be excluded from the discussion.The SDN only tries to cover news within Summit County, and it does a very good job at that task. A snow storm, land swap or new ski lift affect Summit County significantly more than the war in Iraq, hurricanes, Mount St. Helen’s or whether Yasser Arafat is alive or dead.I like that the front page photo is almost always from the county, usually of something that will remind us all why we choose to live in Summit County or at least spend a lot of time there. I like that four years ago page A7 was the first reference to the presidential election fiasco in Florida; the first six pages dealt with local news. When I want national news, I read a national paper.When I want international news, I go to an international source. I can’t read about the recent violence in Thailand in SDN, but I couldn’t find any news about a chair lift up Peak 8 in the International Herald Tribune. Sure SDN has a lot of ads, but the paper is also free. A year subscription to the Tribune costs $380, infinitely higher than SDN. By the way, Bill, it looks like you were abroad for a while, did you remember to vote?
