You may have noticed… I like to brag on our excellent staff here and at our sister papers.

We recently heard from Dawn Godfrey about her experience working with our advertising consultant Francine Wahlgren.

Dawn’s family, longtime residents of Longmont, placed a paid ad in the Longmont Times-Call at the request of the family’s 86-year-old father to commemorate a Cushman family reunion in July.

More than 50 members of the extended family attended the event at the Cushman family ranch, which has been in the family for 105 years.

“I want to thank you for the opportunity to work with Francine. She was not only professional, she went the extra mile—or in my case 10 miles—to make my article work.

“She made some corrections and put the article into a beautiful format. I just want to praise her to you. Thanks.”

Thank you, Dawn, for these encouraging words. It’s good to know that even during tough times, our advertising team’s commitment to customer service is second to none.

Some people “make the news.” Others, like our superstar Francine, make the newspaper happen. 

I am forever grateful for all the work our dedicated staff does, every day of the year.
