A ‘thank you’ from the EDN

It’s not often that the newspaper takes time out to say thanks to our readers and advertisers for their support.
There’s no rhyme or reason to it and it’s probably one of the most overlooked aspects of our publication. For now, we’ll try to do our part.

On Dec. 4, in conjunction with the Boys and Girls Club of Ennis and Air Evac, the Ennis Daily News will take time out to do just that with a pre-Christmas Bash at the Boys and Girls Club.

From 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., we’re co-hosting an afternoon of fun and food at the local club in an effort to give a small thanks to those who have made it a successful year. There have been a number of changes made at the paper, from the “flag” (logo) at the top of our front page, to the fonts we use for layout, to adding InsideENNIS to our repertoire. Internally, we’ve made major investments in our building with a new roof, modernizing our electrical work up to modern city code, and purchasing a state-of-the-art pre-press Computer to Plate machine that is helping improve the quality of our product.

None of these changes would be made without the loyal support of our subscribers and advertisers.

Much has been made of the struggles of newspapers over the past 10 years. Having been in the newspaper business since a few weeks before Sept. 11, 2001, which marked the beginning of retail struggles with the first of two recessions last decade, I can assure you it’s been challenging.

However, our loyal readers and advertisers have kept us not only going but improving, as well.

Our largest competitor over the past several years has been people’s time. We compete to inform people of local news as everyone becomes more “wordly.” Worldly in reality means people are interested in the things they like to read about or watch. So we must sell the idea that local news is what’s most important. Our loyal readers understand that and hold us to that standard, too.

Newspapers’ commitment to local politics, local feel good stories, local sports and all types of local events, can never be adequately replaced. And we value those of you who care about this community enough to care about the newspaper. We are your only source for this news. Even when other newspapers try to cover our area, they simply do not have what we have invested in this community.

I’d like to say thank you to anyone who reads us our publication. It is important to Ennis that people in Ennis find out information about their own community.

Also, those advertisers and contributors who play a part in making sure our newspaper remains viable are especially important.

Advertisers continually use our forum to promote help wanted ads, sell retail items, advertise promotions and get whatever message they have across to the masses. We thank you for your confidence in our vehicle to deliver customers.

Please come out and see what all three agencies have to offer. We’re here to help make Ennis a better place, and the best way to do start is by saying thanks.

Please come out and join us as we celebrate your efforts to make this a successful city.
