Help us learn more about each other as people

We think knowing more about the individuals who make our community tick is extremely important, especially in one as tightly knit and intimate as Ennis.
It can be difficult to learn a great deal about people in this day and age, with so much at stake and no shortage of work to keep us busy.

That’s one place where a newspaper can fill the gap — learning and sharing are part of the foundation of what we do here. We can serve as a surrogate for the long conversation over coffee that you may wish you had the chance to have with people in our area.

We want to build on the foundation of community journalism that has served Ennis for more than 100 years, and we have been doing that for some time — in some ways that are obvious and easy to see, as well as in others that are behind the scenes. One new-yet-old concept we have explored recently is easily noticeable to any reader who picked up the Sunday paper and saw the large feature photo and story about barber, former police chief and Ennis City Commission member J.N. “Red” Sanders.

His is the first in a line of stories we will pursue about figures in our community, both those who loom large and those who are not as well known. We look to you, our readers, the city of Ennis and eastern Ellis County, to help us build stories about the people who live, work and play here. We look at our mission as one that includes teaching and information gathering, but also one that makes bringing the community closer together a separate and equal priority.

Any good project requires the input of numerous motivated individuals, and in this instance, the newspaper is looking to the community to help us find the people who we should spotlight — all ideas are valid. We will do our best to reach as many of the suggested subjects as we have resources, ink and space to explore. To suggest a subject, call 972-875-3801 or e-mail editor@ennisdailynews.com and include a name, contact information and brief description of the person.
