Not your typical TGIF

August 8, 2008 - Diane Speer
Usually on Fridays, the majority of our editorial staff is breathing a collective sigh of relief. We are all mentally thinking (if not uttering aloud) the infamous abbreviation, TGIF. With the exception of special events that require coverage, most of us consider Saturday to be a day off from the newspaper.

Not so this Saturday. Every one of us — from the reporters to the editors to the sports guys — will be grabbing our cameras, pens and notepads, and heading off to work. We’ll be blanketing the area and covering what’s happening on an average day in Northeast Michigan for our second annual edition of “A Day in the Life.” Dare I say it — we’re actually kind of excited about it. Last year’s project was really well received by our readers. For us, it was a different way to provide via stories and photos a glimpse of life in our big, beautiful, busy corner of the country.

All of us got to pick something we wanted to cover tomorrow. For example, Sports Editor Chris Dobrowolski is hanging out on the golf course. Reporter Sean Harkins is doing a ride-along with area police. Photographer Lori Werth plans to cover two major events happening this weekend — the Ramblin’ Rods Car Show and the Antique Tractor and Steam Engine Show. As for me, I’m catching a few garage sales to find out from both shoppers and sellers, what’s hot and what’s not.

When it’s all said and done, we hope this second annual “A Day in the Life” is just an enjoyable for our readers as the first one was. And while today may not be a typical TGIF for us, we think the project is worth giving up a portion of our Saturday. Watch for the fruits of our labor in print this coming Wednesday!
