I Need My PD!
I love the PD. It’s my joy to open and read it every day. Without it my morning coffee would be dull, even bitter. I thank God every day that I have such a reliable paper deliverer and I remember to tip him every three months and remember him at Christmas.
The PD is a real, quality and award winning newspaper. It won a Pulitzer. I remember looking at the front page that day and seeing all the news people celebrating. I was proud of them. This was pre-COVID. The PD is locally owned and is still in print every day. It’s got a great digital website as well. I like to take the news quizzes on the website and write letters to the editor every few months. It’s fun to see them in print, though several haven’t been printed. The competition is pretty stiff. We have some great reader/writers out there. I hope the newspaper edition will always be relevant and available. We, in Sonoma County, and beyond are really fortunate to have a great newspaper to read. Subscribe to it today!
eEdition of PD slow and clunky
I have been a PD subscriber for over 15 years. I gave up my print edition in favor of the digital several years ago in an effort to be environmentally conscious and reduce paper clutter around the house. However, I’ve been SO disappointed in the digital edition and constantly struggle to use it. The worst part is that it is slow and clunky, I am constantly dancing around a page expanding and shrinking size, trying different positions in an effort to get the darn page to FOCUS and load. The pictures remain blurred out, the comics are a joke to say the least given the constant struggle to make the images load enough to be even readable. Beyond that the digital edition jumps around constantly, it reloads without warning and may jump to different pages while you are reading. There is no picking up where you left off because the paper is constantly loading new editions taking you away from what you were reading without permission. Finally there is no good way to ‘cut out clippings’ to save a recipe or an article about a new restaurant or an upcoming event to save for later. Emailing articles to yourself just does not do it. I stay a subscriber because there is some local news (although most national news is from yesterday’s New York Times) and I want to support local journalism but there are times when I wonder why I bother.
A Frustrated Reader
The first thing I did when arriving in Santa Rosa in 1978 was to subscribe to the Press Democrat. I had moved from Southern California where I had read the Evening Outlook for many years. In fact with my mom’s help I learned to read a bit. I had to spread it out on the floor because I could not hold it.
The Press has improved greatly over the years and I am out front at 7:00 am looking for it each morning. I certainly enjoy stories of local people, both current and in the past. Gaye Lebaron is a jewel and I so enjoy Pete Golis. I read several newspapers each day, I am a real junkie. But the Press is my favorite.
