Excellent media coverage

THE LOCAL MEDIA has done a very good job with the story of us buying the historic Dodd Building, home of Second String Music since July 2012.

It started when Matt Hopf of The Herald-Whig found out we were meeting with the city to get the Revolving Fund money for renovations. This is a public meeting, so Matt attended it and then wrote a story.

I would have rather waited until we formally signed the papers, but Matt simply did his job, and the information is public, and he did a very good job. We loved Mike Kipley's photo in Wednesday's paper showing Sheryl helping a customer, me doing nothing and both Lucy and Fast Eddie lounging.

Yesterday Jim Whitfield from KHQA came over and his story is below. It's very well done, and it carries the message that without the city's help, we would not be buying this building and investing in downtown Quincy.

WGEM was here this morning, and they are doing live shots at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. today from Fifth and Maine. The Quincy Journal will be here next week.

So far, so good. I'm biased, of course, since I worked at The Whig for 16 years. It's nice to be on the other side and I appreciate the good work done by our local media.
