>Sunday in Falls Village

>I had the pleasure of spending the day manning our booth at the Tri-State Chamber of Commerce annual festival in Falls Village today.
We gave out several hundred copies of the Sunday Register Citizen, and I was struck in talking to people by the opportunity that we have on Sundays.
Many in the Northwest Corner, I am guessing, gave up on the Sunday paper a long time ago. Except for the comics and department store inserts and coupons, it had no more – sometimes less – than your average weekday edition.
Over the summer, though, we greatly expanded local news content. We also expanded space for features, opinion and world and nation news.
We added legendary Litchfield County author and journalist Owen Canfield as a featured Sunday columnist.
We reintroduced our weekly “A Life Remembered” feature and added another people feature and local business and history spotlights and even local crosswords and word searches.
And last month, we were pleased to add former Hartford Courant business editor George Gombossy’s weekly consumer advocate column.
PLUS … Every Sunday we run a roundup of news items from every single one of Litchfield County’s 26 towns.
If you gave up a while ago on the Sunday Register Citizen, it’s worth some reacquaintance.
