Thom George: How’d It Go, DFO?

Thom George: DFO; how went the meeting with the boss, re: Daily Huckleberries?

DFO: Extremely well. Daily Huckleberries will continue this fall on the other side of my last weekly vacation (Aug. 28 to Sept. 1). Importantly, Editor Smith has agreed to lighten my editorial-writing load by (drum roll, please) contracting with a North Idaho free-lancer to pick up one editorial per week. This’ll free me to get out of the office a little — and concentrate a little more on the interactivity of this blog. I was pleased with the outcome. I enjoy every element of my job. In fact, I believe, I have the best newspaper job in Idaho. But there’s too much of it, at present. Basically, I have two jobs that demand full-time attention — Opinion Page duties and Huckleberries print and online — that are getting two-thirds attention or less.
