Stop the presses!
We here at the Pulaski Review are sad to announce that we will be stopping the presses and no longer publishing our newspaper.
This copy that was mailed out on Wednesday, Feb. 24, was our final production.
Although we felt we were becoming a major communication tool within the community, it is for financial reasons why we must discontinue the Pulaski Review
It was a great ride with many memories that I as editor will always keep with me.
I will remember the images of Glenbrook Elementary physical education teacher Dennis Bogacz high-fiving students as they crossed the finish line during the Turkey Trot.
The demolition and renovation of Glenbrook Elementary School was a site to behold.
Covering the Pulaski High School athletic events and seeing all the blood, sweat and tears those student athletes put into their respective sports.
Seeing the smiles on parents and children’s faces as they attended community events such as Frosty Holiday Event, Boo Bash, Polka Days, Paczki Day and many more.
Paying respect to our Pulaski Veteran’s during Memorial Day Services or on Veteran’s Day and having the school pay tribute to the brave men and women who served our country.
We also covered tragedy with our very first issue that was published on September 9, 2014. A Pulaski Community School District bus was involved in a crash which killed a passenger in the other vehicle that was involved. The bus was carrying the high school varsity and junior varsity volleyball teams home from Seymour when the accident occurred at WIS 29 and St. Augustine St.
There was hard news that needed to be covered. A serious issue that was newsworthy was a report of bullying at the high school. After filing an open records request we were able to get the documents and report what happened.
Former Superintendent Milt Thompson resigned and we reported what we could on first his paid administrative leave, then his resignation.
It was a great year-and-a half of being able to bring the news into your homes. I’ve made many friends throughout the process, and for that I am very thankful.
It was a great ride, however, this ride has come to an end.
We are down, but not out. Who knows, our paths may cross again with some news adventure.
Farewell for now!
