Priority areas remain in the news

It's important these days to have priority areas to focus on at any newspaper, because we cannot cover everything.

Here, we've had different ones over time but in recent years we've had three. I wrote about them in Saturday's farewell column.

The housing and excessive drinking issues became very important to me after just a few short years at the CDT. And the gas drilling issue is important to everyone in Pennsylvania, and we have to be the trusted source. 

These issues will not lessen in importance in coming months and years. I look forward to reading updates on, like thousands of others who visit the site every day.
