As I look back on the past two years as news editor of the Sewickley Herald, I have many memories.
I've learned more things about the community than I ever would have known.
I've met more people than I ever would have met.
I've followed issues that I knew about but was able to learn much more about them.
This is my last issue of the Sewickley Herald. I have accepted a position elsewhere, but the newspaper remains committed to the community.
The No. 1 question I've fielded over this time is “How do I get something in the newspaper?”
If you would like to submit an item about an event at a church, club or other community organization, have news about a student earning a spot on the dean's list or would like to get a wedding announcement into the Herald, you have several options.
You can email the information to email@example.com; mail it to the Sewickley Herald, 504 Beaver St., Sewickley, PA 15143; fax it to 412-324-1401; or drop it off at the office.
The deadline to submit information is Friday for the next Thursday's edition.
If you would like to talk to a reporter about a story idea, you can contact one of the Herald staffers:
• News reporter Bobby Cherry, firstname.lastname@example.org, 412-324-1408.
• Photographer-reporter Kristina Serafini, email@example.com, 412-324-1405.
• Feature reporter Joanne Barron, firstname.lastname@example.org, 412-324-1406.
To contact the managing editor, Kim Palmiero, email email@example.com
If you have a sports story idea to submit to the sports department, you can send the information to Bill Hartlep at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 412-320-7934.
For advertisements, contact: display advertising, Carolyn Dymerski, 412-324-1411, or email her at email@example.com; or for classified advertising, call 800-551-5677.
To place a paid obituary, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 866-794-9801

Community newspapers thrive when readers give input and contribute.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
