  1. You need to check your info more carefully if you expect to be a news source people can depend on. Community Transit is on a Sunday Schedule today, according to their own information. Please don’t print false information in the future. I was looking for a way to get to any Community Thanksgiving Meal, but I almost gave up on eating today when I saw your notice that there are no buses today. Can you imagine how disappointed I would have been had I believed your information and skipped eating today, only to find it wasn’t true. Just wanted to tell you that so you can understand how important correct information is. I understand your motivation is mostly money, but please don’t sacrifice the idea that local newspapers provide an important service.

  2. Wow – I would generally just ignore these kinds of nasty letters, but this one really hit me. Having worked in Marketing for My Edmonds News for over 3 years, I can assure you that your statement “I understand that your motivation is mostly money” could not be further from the truth. Teresa Wippel and My Edmonds News provides an invaluable service to this community. She is the only news outlet at every single City Council Meeting, so that we may know what is going on in our city from the comforts of our living rooms. She and her entire staff work very hard and I can assure you, they don’t do it for the money. Your subscription is voluntary, even though she has to pay everybody on her staff. You do indeed owe her an apology.

    1. I agree with all of your comments except don’t you know that city council meetings are televised live and can also be viewed on the city’s website?

      1. Yes, Ron. Thanks for pointing out all the ways one could view/access the City Council meetings. We are lucky to have such extensive coverage of our government in action. I just have to open MEN to get all the information I need.

        1. I also appreciate that MEN tweets during the council meetings. Not all of us have the bandwidth to attend and/or watch every meeting in real time.
