HOWLAND - Editors of the Tribune Chronicle on Wednesday shared what goes in to publishing ''a good, readable, quality newspaper'' each day.
About 20 residents attended the Meet the Editor's night held at the Howland administration building where the public learned about the different duties of newspaper workers.
The event was one of a year-long series of meetings in different communities as part of the newspaper's 200th anniversary.
''This allows us to get to know you and for you to get to know us and ask your questions,'' Publisher Charles Jarvis said.
Howland resident Warner Taiclet said he appreciates the coverage the newspaper provides of Howland events and sports, as well as national events including the Olympics this summer.
He said his daughter, who lives in Argentina, reads the paper online and keeps up on Trumbull County news.
''The Tribune has done a great job covering Howland,'' he said.
He asked about the ''CU'' notice that placed on many photographs in the paper.
Jarvis said many photos of events covered by the newspaper are posted at cu.tribtoday.com for the public to view and purchase.
Bill Finnigan said he moved to the area from Atlanta and enjoys a newspaper he feels is ''balanced and community oriented'' with editorials and articles that show both sides of an issue.
Jarvis said the editorials are designed to share a point of view and get people talking. He said people have the opportunity to respond through letters to the editor or calls to the newsroom.
''Our business is the only business in America that will publish the criticism," he said.
Trustee James Saker said he appreciates that the township, in addition to the daily Tribune Chronicle, also has the monthly Howland Community News with local news stories and photos.
''As a baby boomer I enjoy having a newspaper and not having to worry about finding something on the computer,'' he said.
Jarvis said there will always be ''an appetite for news'' but more is going online, and people are finding more ways to read the newspaper for free such as by sharing newspapers.
General Manager Len Blose said the Tribune's website receives thousands of visits each day, and many people log on from their work place.
''We are about putting together a good, readable, quality newspaper each day,'' Blose said.
