If I were among TPTB at the Northfield Hospital or the First National Bank of Northfield, I’d be wondering why the Northfield News didn’t have a reporter or photographer cover the hospital’s grand opening (Sat. May 19) of its new FamilyHealth Medical Clinic nor the bank’s groundbreaking ceremony for its new south location.
Yes, the paper did a story about the new clinic prior to the event. And it ran a submitted photo of the bank’s groundbreaking. But why not coverage of the events themselves? These are major institutions in Northfield and major advertisers in the paper.
The paper should considering contracting with blogger Ray Cox who had the the best coverage of both events (bank post here, clinic post here), putting even the Locally Grown (post here – I missed the opening ceremony) and Northfield.org (post here) bloggers to shame.
