DID YOU KNOW: That articles sent to the local newspapers for inclusion each week. Are sent to an editor who then decides on how the newspaper is made up each week. Contributors have a deadline date each week to send in reports one week in advance of publication date. As this news diary page runs from Friday of one week, to Thursday. Any reports received after the report has been sent off, will be kept over for the following week. So anything with a specific date if sent in late, is often not included in my column, but put in the newspaper wherever they have spaces. So if your articles do not appear when you think they should be, complaints should be sent to the newspaper concerned, and not to contributors who give up their time in order to send off the articles on your behalf. This is the reason why I ask contributions to be send to me two weeks in advance, as I have to send my copy in one week in advance of publication date. As we are no longer paid for our contributions, doing this as a charitable act, there is a limit as to how many complaints one can tolerate before giving up altogether.
