A Valley News Publication

The sounds of the Valley News newsroom

Correction of the week? Month? Year?

On a more serious note …

Here’s the Huffington Post story from over the weekend: Bernie Sanders On AR-15s: They’re ‘Not For Hunting. They’re For Killing Human Beings’

And here’s the Seven Days story from 2016: The Gun: How I Bought an AR-15 in a Five Guys Parking Lot

The New York Times is looking for young writers

I still qualify as young, right? Because this is a super neat opportunity.

Valley News paper boys and girls from 1989

From the notes on the photo: “Jim Ladue, rookie of the month, July ’89”

This is so. cool.

We’ve been doing a little bit of ~cleaning~ and ~organizing~ around here lately, and recently stumbled upon a collection of photographs from 1989, when the Valley News was still an afternoon paper and had a young fleet of paper boys and girls.

The photos are related to paper carrier awards, with notes such as “carrier of the month” or “honorable mention” scrawled in the margins.

There’s 20 photos in total. Click through to our Facebook album to see them all, and TAG YOUR FRIENDS if you recognize anybody from back in the day!
