I agree with Bret Kofford, believe it or not. We are blessed with technology that can start our cars with the push of a button, save lives with robotic equipment, count the stars and let us talk to people thousands of miles away with a handheld device smaller than a pack of cigarettes. It is truly amazing. However, there is nothing like holding the newspaper in your hands with a steaming cup of coffee at your side early in the morning or reading your favorite author's latest book to see whodunit.

Every time I hear it I have to restrain myself from going for the throat. "You're just trying to sell newspapers," the know-it-alls say, knowing nothing as usual. After I get past my provoked German shepherd-like initial response, I try to explain how the newspaper business works, but the know-it-alls, as we all know, rarely listen. They cut me off and then tell me a few things about my business, the one I have been in for more than 20 years. So let me tell the story here, if you'll indulge me, about "just trying to sell newspapers.

Nearly a half century of planting word seeds and watching them grow into daily newspapers ? an apt metaphor perhaps for an agricultural area ? has left a deeply ingrained reluctance to use the pronoun "I. " But journalism is a field that grows ironies as well as bumper crops of news stories, which is what newspapering is to an admitted traditionalist ? writing about other people, not ourselves. This is one of those ironies, being asked to write a column of reflections on 21 years in the glass cage that was then the office of the managing editor of the Imperial Valley Press.

Since “Gov. Moon Beam” signed the budget, there has been little mention of the fact that he also suspended the Brown Act. Will your newspaper be riding herd on our local politicians to keep them honest? It's not that I don't trust politicians - it's just that I don' trust politicians. - Tricky Dick, El Centro The Brown Act in its entirety has not been suspended by the state Legislature; however, certain provisions have become voluntary rather than mandatory through trailer bill AB1464 approved late last June.

Newspapers have a rich history of service for the Americans who read them and buy them on a daily basis. They inform, entertain and provide a link within the community we live and a line to the outside world. They perform on a level and at a depth that television cannot do, or could not afford to do anywhere outside the 24-hour cable news channel. Newspaper companies also have a rich history of providing a strong source of cash flow with high-profit margins and low overhead in the years before the Internet came along and changed the way newspapers functioned and profited.

Why are birth announcements no longer appearing in the newspaper as in days of old? My mother has clippings of all our birth announcements and I always thought it was a very nice way of letting others know of your recent addition. — Missing Vitals, Brawley Ah, yes. Vitals. That was what we called our daily conglomeration of birth announcements and hospitalizations (including admissions and dismissals) from our two local medical centers, El Centro Regional Medical Center and Pioneers Memorial Hospital in Brawley.
