Editor’s Blog: Behind the scenes of last week’s issue

Jillian Beaudry

Despite battling housing registration, the staff was in pretty high spirits last Thursday on production night. Even though a couple of editors were gone for an hour or more trying to get their dream apartments for next year, all of them caught up wonderfully and we walked out a little after 2 a.m., which was amazing. Its great that the team can tackle problems like that and step in to help each other out.

The issue is great because the content was really strong this week. We had real news! Former President Bill Clinton stopped by McMinnville. The photos were great and we ran another full color issue because we featured the winners of the study abroad photo contest on pages 8 and 9.

We finished up the myth series with the piece about Matt Groening’s parents who met at Linfield. It was exciting to find out that the show we grew up with was based on two Linfield alumni.

The writers were all on top of their game again this week and stories were all turned in to me so early on Thursday. It’s so nice not having to stress about that.
