Bill, this is my first time here. I'm not putting you down, just wondering. Do you cover CD East events, too? I saw a lot of CD mentions here. I'm a CDE Class of '78 grad, and I still live in the area.

Hi, Scooter. Thanks for checking out the Gazette.

Yes, CD East gets some mentions – usually links to Patriot-News articles.

I'm more connected to CD since I live in the school's feeder area and my daughter is a senior there. Most CD mentions are associated with links to the newspaper as well.

I would need to go beyond being a one-man operation to do a good job covering the school district.
