    This is pretty cool. What is he doing up here?

  2. Cristine Meixner says:

    I wrote the press release for LP Library, not Adk. Almanack staff which published it word for word. Mr. Papitashvili has a personal connection to this area.

      Christine, the byline below says: “Stories under the Almanack’s Editorial Staff byline come from press releases and other notices. To have your news noticed here at the Almanack contact our editor John Warren at”

      Publishing a press notices like this is more than simply copying and pasting text.

        I know what your disclaimer says about articles attributed to ‘Editorial Staff.’ This particular post is a copy and paste, formatted to meet your website parameters. This is a pet peeve of mine. I don’t care about recognition but I do care about not misleading readers. I guess I’m quibbling since the information was published correctly.

        • John Warren says:

          The source is clearly indicated. If you wanted credit or were concerned about being honest, you could have just sent it in your name instead of in the name of the Lake Pleasant Library and the Southern Adirondack Library System.

  3. Paul says:

    Never seen someone complain about a press release getting disseminated in the media. Especially when it is just what the original release wanted?

    We do this all the time in our field it is common practice and like John says you just reference the source.
