What is wrong with our lazy paper?
This is why I would not pay a red cent to subscribe to this paper. Charles was an iconic figure in Baldwin City. At least the paper could copy the obit from the Lawrence Journal World. http://www2.ljworld.com/obits/2009/feb/25/charles-doudna/
In a small town like ours I would expect the paper to report about everything. When you read the Baldwin Ledger from years ago it is filled with local info from new people moving into town to local events going on.
We have had several new police officers, yet no stories about them. We have had several new businesses come to town or change hands, but no detailed stories about them. Baker has hosted a Louisiana/southern meal Monday to coincide with Fat Tuesday. It was all you can eat for $5 and open to the public, but did the paper report that, NO I guess it is just too much work for them.
My advice to the editors go and read some issues of the Baldwin Ledger, or just get out and ask some questions about what is going on in the city. There is plenty to write about.
I would think that you could at least give a special tribute to a man's life that was so a part of this city for more than 50 years.
