Engaging change – why a policy was altered

-A A +A

An explanation of how things work in the news business by Terri Likens

Things change.
Sometimes, in response, we have to change, too.
Few words could be truer when talking about people … and even newspapers.
Here at the Roane County News, we like to reason things out when we set any kind of policy.
But sometimes, even after they were made with careful thought, we see flaws or omissions in our policies.
We find points we hadn’t thought about, and we consider changes.
Last week we made an alteration to our policy concerning the publication of engagements between couples planning to marry.
