Meditation 2.27.19 - A Pen and Ink Tangle
I don't remember what I was doing when I was seven but I am quite sure I wasn't creating a newspaper. But that is exactly what Hilde Lysiak did.
Is it ok to be proud of a stranger?
Hilde Lysiak founded the Orange Street News in 2014 and dedicated the newspaper to the news of Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania.
While the paper started small, with a limited readership and column variety, after Ms. Lysiak and The Orange Street News, nabbed the breaking story of a violent murder within the quiet borough of almost 5,400 in 2016, the newspapers reach and subscriptions increased substantially.
Ms. Lysiak hasn't let her success slow her down and is still chasing down her own leads, including visiting the Southern border to report to her readers the true nature of the border wall, despite a scuffle with the local town marshall.
I wonder what her future career has in store and how many Pulitizer's we can expect this talent to earn.
