Re: PJS High School Sports Coverage

Adam how do you make a living with only 18-20 hours a week? Do you write/report for any other publications? I did not realize that the four of you were part timers...I miss the good old days when newspapers had money and had a lot of full time sports staff. I left the Journal Star as a full-timer i...

Re: PJS High School Sports Coverage

I did not know that four of the reporters were part time reporters. A 9pm deadline makes it just about impossible for the morning paper after games, but most of the time there is nothing on the games. Scores for a Tuesday game could surely be in thursdays paper as well as Friday games in the Sunday...

Re: PJS High School Sports Coverage

Seven sports writers seems like a big enough staff to report local sports. In Fridays paper [ Dec. 20 ] two full pages---the sports ticker and scoreboard ---- does either page require any of the seven reporters to do much work? Good article on Bradley, I like the power ratings on high school basket...

Re: 2019-2020 Season

No one, but then I haven’t heard much from the B/N schools. Lady Potters have a nice freshman team coming in. You can’t ever count out Richwoods to put up a good fight against Morton. The Knights return six of their top nine. These two meet at 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30 in the Morton Thanksgiving Tou...

Re: Would it be inappropriate to....

In case you missed this from Friday: We love sports. We know you do, too. But change is hard. And as readers of this newspaper know, the Journal Star sports section has undergone plenty of change recently. We’ve seen resources reduced. What’s more, we have an earlier press deadline. That means many ...

Re: PJS High School Sports Coverage

Unfortunately I don’t have one, except I do remember years ago the PJS used to have people from the home schools call in the stats and game highlights. I used to do that and had a contact at the paper to call. Our son did that when he was in high school also. I guess we were your stringers. Would t...

Re: PJS High School Sports Coverage

Another round of layoffs is unreal. With all of the great local sports teams in golf, soccer and cross country, etc. I find it hard to believe that we can’t get coverage from the local media. Peoria wants the IHSA basketball, baseball and softball, yet there is no commitment from our print media. G...
