Questions on publishing on Cape website
As a subscriber, I like to send links to your website articles. In the Oct. 10 Cape Gazette, Ryan Mavity reported that our elected officials, Sen. Ernie Lopez and Rep. Pete Schwartzkopf, recently offered the reasons why they are challenging the proposed changes by the Department of Transportation for dealing with Route 1 traffic and safety issues. These comments were made at a meeting of the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce Sept. 24.
I cannot find this article on the Gazette website. What criteria do the editors use to decide which articles in the hard copy edition are worthy of putting on your website? The Mavity piece is timely and newsworthy. Both Lopez and Schwartzkopf apparently made comments that illuminate further the history of local concerns, proposed some alternative ideas, and acknowledged the many difficulties confronting the local communities in dealing with the mess now on Route 1. Putting this article on the website would be in keeping with your other articles following this big issue.
Editor's note: It's great to know people are reading the paper and watching the site. To ensure our site is lively every day, we schedule the bylined stories out over the week, so web readers will find fresh material every day. It's a bit of a challenge when you are staffed as a weekly, but you have a daily website that always needs to be refreshed.
The story you are looking for is set to go up on Wednesday, Oct. 16 and by the end of the week, all of the bylined stories will have run unless we missed one, which does happen. Sometimes it's alert readers like you who make sure we find them all!
Thanks very much for your interest and for taking the time to let us know. The Cape Gazette is very concerned about Route 1, and the story will definitely be posted! Keep watching!
