from the editor’s desk IT’S HARD to believe another year has just about whizzed by. It’s been another 12 months of change – particularly in the media game as the big overseas-owned media groups grapple on how to deliver the news to its consumers, and still stay in business. But the Pegasus Post rolls on, providing good local news and advertising to readers who, in spite of what the big boys might say, still enjoy the feel and touch of a newspaper. But best of all it’s local, and that’s something Pegasus Post has been doing since 1954. Yep that’s right – we’re nearly through our seventh decade of publishing. So have a very merry and safe Christmas and, of course, a happy New Year! Barry Clarke
