Oct. 2, 2012 — Cindie called this “the concert of a lifetime” back in May when she heard her son Tyson (of KSUE fame) and his roommate Pat (the former Times staffer) had bought us tickets to see last week’s Crosby, Stills and Nash (CSN) in Reno to celebrate Mother’s Day and my birthday.
Although the concert was months away, I scribbled CSN on my calendar at work. I’ve always enjoyed the superstar band’s music, but they don’t mean as much to me as they do to Cindie.
Oct. 2, 2012 — What an appropriate theme for this year’s celebration of National Newspaper Week, Oct. 7-13: Newspapers: The cornerstone of your community.
There are more than 7,000 weekly newspapers across the country — including the Lassen County newspaper you are reading right now — that are devoted to protecting and defending your right to know by thoroughly covering the issues and lifestyles of the people living in those communities. And with the ever-increasing number of ways we can obtain information, the role of community newspapers becomes even more important.
