One thing I’ve always loved about the Bedford and Marshall County communities is just how much the folks here love their local sports.
For one, it’s given us a steady source of material to report on, but it’s also been a great pool for us to generate excellent news sections.
In being able to report locally, we often would bridge the gaps between sections with relevant state and local news stories.
While we will still do this from time to time, one thing we want to get back to is getting user submissions.
This is your newspaper and we want to include your happenings in print.
Have a championship travel ball team?
Send a photo!
Catch a big bass over the weekend?
Tell us about it!
Knock down a big buck in deer season?
We want to see it!
During the school year, it’s fairly easy to know what we’ve got coming up because we just follow the scholastic sports schedule to the next event.
That schedule runs for roughly nine to 10 months until the doldrums of summer set in.
Over the years, we’ve seen summer leagues become far and few between here locally with AAU teams and travel ball teams.
Here’s where we need the community’s help.
We’re looking for feature story ideas, as well as user submissions, for us to report on.
Send us your ideas, photos and story leads to firstname.lastname@example.org.
