West Texas Tribune is four years old
This month the West Texas Tribune turns four years old. During that time many stories have been written. Many miles have been traveled in order to bring you this paper. The paper started as a dream. That’s really how most things start — with a dream and ultimately some action. Today, we want to thank our loyal readers and advertisers because without you there would really be no purpose for our paper.We want to thank the dedicated staff who has been with us, from the beginning, Photo journalists, Joe Starkey, Journalist Sienna Miller, Sales Ellis Miller, and the other writers Janice Coleman, Frances Boyd, Kathy Barr, Robert Lilly, Henry Nelson and Brother Bey. We are also happy to have Jeremy Ray representing us in the Midland-Odessa area. There are a lot of things that are different now. We have a website, westtexastribune.com, and every story and every article that’s in the paper is on the the website. You can log on and comment on any story that’s on the web. We encourage you to do that. We’re also on face book and twitter now so join us. We want to live up to our motto, “To Inform and To Serve” in a greater capacity. We want to engage our readers more. We encourage you to send letters to the editor and to consider being a guest writer.Our first edition was printed on Mother’s Day 2005. A front page story paid tribute to my mother in law. The story was titled “Remembering Muh” it can be seen on the web-site under the mother’s day tab. As we look forward to the coming year we want to wish all Mothers a Happy Mother’s Day.
