I’ve been wanting to write this for a few weeks now. My husband and I moved our small family here two summers ago.
A new friend suggested I order the paper. On her suggestion, I did. I used to write for my high school newspaper, and won a few awards from a newspaper agency for my work. So, I’m a journalism junkie.
I’ve been really impressed with your approach to the Tooele Transcript. In fact, I am now converted to the virtues of a small-town periodical. I was happy, though not surprised, to learn in your recent edition that the Transcript won a slough of awards from the Utah Society of Professional Journalists Headliners and the Utah Press Association’s Better Newspaper Contest.
I was a fan of another local paper for many years, but honestly, I think you guys do it better! You have factual articles containing relevant information to our local community. You report events, rather than raising speculation through controversy and creating division. Thank you for what you do. You have my support!
