What stories require ‘A Closer Look’?

The focus of a series that began last week and will continue in each weekend edition of The Winchester Sun is to go beyond the surface of a story, offering “A Closer Look” at a topic or issue of interest or community importance.

We know there are many critical issues facing Clark County and its residents. Many of them show up in the pages of our newspaper daily, but often in a specific and narrow scope.

We plan to take in-depth looks at critical or interesting issues and what they really mean to the community.

The goal is to be intentional rather than just reactive when it comes to important topics like the drug epidemic, economic development, education, downtown growth and many others.

We took a light-hearted start by examining what is inside the evidence rooms of our local law enforcement agencies.

This may not have been a burning question on the minds of anyone but there is something to be said for entertaining and educating readers.

Upcoming topics include downtown parking and accessibility, what it means to be a Work Ready Community in Kentucky and the challenges of being a school bus driver.

These may change as needed to reflect current events, but the goal is to be consistent and timely in our coverage, using our limited resources to provide news content you won’t find anywhere else.

As always, we want to serve our readers and provide news you need.

What are topics that you feel deserve “A Closer Look?”

We welcome feedback and input.

The need for reactive news — reporting on a house fire, a government meeting or a big event, just to name a few — will never go away. But being proactive in our coverage of important topics is another way we hope to show The Winchester Sun is getting back to its roots and serving Clark County like no one else.
