Deadline for reader panel extended

The deadline to apply for the Sierra Sun’s reader focus group has been extended until Monday, Jan. 29.

To better serve our readers and reflect the interests of our community, the Sierra Sun is forming a reader focus group of six readers.

We’ve already had several interested applicants but want to be sure that everyone interested has a chance to apply, so we are extending the deadline past the original Jan. 19 deadline.

We’ll be talking about the Sun and plans for the future, but also about those things that make up our communities: local government, sports, civic groups, environmental issues, area churches and those things that make you want to read our newspaper.

If you are interested in being a part of our group, send a 300-word-or-less letter telling us why you think you’d like to take part in the group. As well, include your name, telephone number, occupation and how long you’ve lived in Truckee.

Apply to Nik Dirga, Editor, by writing us at P.O. Box 2973, Truckee CA 96160, or E-mailing
