Downtown Quincy media love
LAUREN KALIL OF KHQA did an excellent story about downtown Quincy business success stories. Lauren has rapidly become one of the better local TV reporters in the area and of course I'm biased, since she did a story about teaching music to older students and featured Second String Music.
It's nice to see a positive story. When a restaurant or department store closes, it's frustrating to read the stupid social media comments about how Quincy is dying and there's nothing to do in this town.
I covered crime and courts, and I'm probably most remembered for all the bizarre and horrific stories I had to write about. Yet I inked hundreds of columns and tons of feature stories that were positive and told great stories. Nobody seems to remember those.
Thanks again, Lauren. And it's true - downtown Quincy rocks!
