From My Desk By Elizabeth Tanner

    Dear Miss Tanner,
    My name is Tracy McAlister and I graduated from Post High School in 1977. Every since then, I have taken The Post Dispatch by mail wherever I have lived. I am so glad that you are from Post and know, pretty much, everyone in town.
    I used to work for the Dispatch when I was a senior in PHS. Back then there was a school page full to my columns and other fun things with which I reported. I worked for Jim Cornish back then and I loved him. He was a great teacher on how to write news reports, columns and headlines. I hope you do as well as he did and are as beloved. My gripe with the paper is that when you have pictures of people (especially quite a few) there are no names under the pictures to correlate with who the people are. I have not lived in Post for 42 years, but I still have some classmates there along with a little bit of family and kids and grandkids of people I know. Please, please, please do this for me. It means so much to all of us that take the paper but live out of town.
    Thank You,
    Tracy McAlister

      I’m excited to hear from you and cannot wait to go back in the archives and read some of your work. I would love to feature some of your past writings in my other column Yesteryear’s. I always try to feature people whose names I am aware of, so I will definitely be on the lookout for yours!

      As for your feedback, I would be happy to do that for you! If you ever have any other suggestions please feel free to email me at [email protected]. We would love more of your feedback, especially since you are an out of town reader and we want to make the paper more accommodating to folks like you.

      Thank you so much for your comment and for your continued loyalty to The Post Dispatch. I look forward to hearing more from you!

      Kindest regards,
      Elizabeth Tanner
