Let's Write a Newspaper!
February 10, 2009

Our little crew of four stayed in Berlin an extra day after the World Money Fair was finished so that we could write this month's World Coin News. The idea was to do it here while it was fresh in our minds, so we could get the news out to our readers quicker and with the utmost accuracy.

It was difficult, but we accomplished the task with the help of Maggie Stigsell and Debbie Bradley back in Iola. Here in Berlin, Lisa Bellavin and Scott Tappa took care of image selection and transfer, plus Scott wrote an article, while Dave Harper wrote and edited all the copy and I wrote and emailed copy. Everyone worked diligently on both sides of the pond and together I think we must have put out a really fine issue.

Afterwards, we discovered that our flight back home had been canceled, so Lisa has been busy rebooking our flights and getting us home by an other route. We'll be a day later and a bit more tired I suspect, but we'll get there.
