The weak, er week, in names

Well, this week has been challenging. I have had every strange and alternate spelling of names you can imagine. Here is the short list


It's been challenging -- but a long time ago I learned that the FIRST question you ask is: "How do I spell your name?" Then you read it back to them. Nothing destroys your credibility as a newspaper writer faster than getting names wrong. OK, maybe adding a zero to a budget story would, but who likes budget stories?

Anyway, made the front page of the Silverton Appeal this week with a story about a developer and building that are going to be awarded a state-wide award for downtown revitalization. It was fun.

Wolf Building wins award

Stay safe,
