ICYMI: Post Via The Winsted Citizen Blog: June Edition in Production / Staff Updates / We're going digital in addition to print ... Stay tuned ...

If it's important to you, it's important to us

Only those who attempt the absurd
will achieve the impossible

A Note From The Editor & Publisher

Dear Readers, Advertisers, Donors,

Thanks to you, we not only still exist, we are flourishing.

Our June edition – the fifth – is in production and will hit the mail and the street June 2.

As with many startups, a major constant is change. You are seeing new reporters and photographers in each edition.

Our Executive Editor Melanie Ollett has been leading the charge in recent editions, with strong support from Contributing Editor Michelle Manafy. Many readers know Melanie works as a librarian and is looking forward to enjoying the summer with her children; that is precisely what she will be doing as of July 1 while continuing to serve the paper on a limited basis as a contributing editor.

Succeeding Melanie as executive editor in July will be Doug Clement, former senior editor at Connecticut Magazine and longtime editor of The Litchfield County Times. Few people know the region and its people, especially the arts and culture scene, better than Doug.

Doug will be leading the charge into the fall and next year: Litchfield County & Beyond ...

Yes, we plan to be around for a while. You might begin to think of us as Connecticut’s premiere newsmagazine. That’s part of our vision for 2024.

We continue striving to earn your trust. Please continue to let us know how we’re doing and what you want to see in our publication. Remember: It’s Your Paper, We Work For You.

Andy Thibault, Editor & Publisher, May 12, 2023
