By Dan Spears

Third Vice President

Greetings again, everyone! Looking forward to our next small newspaper hangout, live from APSE Winter Conference and Judging. We’ll be talking at 5 p.m. ET, Wednesday, Feb. 27.

Our topic this time will be Priorities — How Do You Manage Them The Right Way? We have all been asked to add things to our plates, which requires us to figure out the right balance of everything to keep from being spread too thin. What must be done? What should be done? And what do we need to stop doing? Sometimes it’s painful letting things go, even though it’s the right thing.

Joining us this time will be:

Dana Sulonen, deputy sports editor at the Detroit Free Press and formerly sports editor of the Opelika-Auburn News and Tribune Chronicle in Warren, Ohio, and

Ben Brigandi, who was sports editor at the Williamsport (Pa.) Sun-Gazette for nearly 20 years.

Looking forward to hearing y’all then; and if you know someone else who would like to join us, don’t hesitate to share the Calendar item. And if you are at judging, we’ll make an announcement about where we’re holding the hangout so you can join us in person.
