Rural Women’s Recovery gives hope, care to addicted women
The reason why The Post is focusing on opioids this week.
Several people have made the comment in the past few weeks that I’m now the lame duck of The Post, which is not totally wrong. I have a few short weeks until I graduate, though I’d like to think (and maybe this is the “lame” part) that I’m spending my precious time still devoted to Baker 325.
This much is clear: newsrooms and their editors like to encourage basic civic duties — especially when such civic duties involve being an informed voter, as that usually requires a voter read his or her local newspapers.
Many of us, whether that be student journalists at The Post or any other student at Ohio University, want to believe that we’re innovators, people capable of implementing original ideas in a creative setting.
For the past few months, reporters at The Post have been researching and reporting on how the opioid epidemic came to impact Athens and Ohio University, all for a special issue devoted to the topic that will be published April 13.
I first noticed a BuzzFeed admittance on a lack of newsroom diversity in October 2015 — right after I had started my tenure as editor.

From The Editor’s Desk: Decades of reporting on McDavis, administration bolsters special ‘Post’ edition
Since President Roderick McDavis entered Cutler Hall, ‘Post’ reporters have been there to cover this administration.
As editor of The Post, my heart and soul goes first toward the product. Does that sound neurotic? It should. I am married to this newsroom, and we’re celebrating our four-year anniversary. You can send cake, if you want.
It’s difficult to determine whether there’s a reporter out there who isn’t attempting to cover President Donald Trump’s recent executive order banning travelers from entering the U.S. from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days, in addition to banning refugee admissions for 120 days and Syrian admissions altogether.
There is no shortage of complex, emotionally heavy topics for a journalist to cover on a college campus.
Ohio University’s campus should have a firm grasp of its interim president by Friday, Jan. 20, when the Board of Trustees is expected to announce a temporary appointment to replace President Roderick McDavis.

From the editor's desk: ‘Post’ aims to diligently report out election outcome long after Tuesday evening

When the campus’ opinion has shifted, we have followed that tide diligently.
