For nearly five months, the Las Vegas Optic has been a three-day-a-week newspaper. For our first 130 years, this paper was a daily.
Because of the reduction, many people have mistakenly believed that we work only three days a week. We don’t — for a very simple reason: The news still happens all the time.
When my superiors decided to reduce the Optic’s frequency, I was nervous. I figured that we would get many complaints from our readers and some cancellations of subscriptions.
