When you have worked in newspapers as long as I have, you tend to get a little jaded. Reporters have seen a lot, done a lot and heard a lot of stories. Sometimes, a reporter or an editor has to have a fresh set of eyes to see what is in front of them.
That’s what Mary Alford brought to the News-Herald this summer.
She was hired for a 10-week summer intern program through the Kentucky Press Association.
