Former Daily Light reporter praises hard hitting journalism
Although it’s been nearly 10 years since I lived in Ellis County and worked as a reporter for
The Waxahachie Daily Light
, I still consider that great corner of Texas as one of my favorite places on earth.
That said, I’ve been discouraged by the rampant corruption I’ve observed in Ellis County, either first hand or via the crack reporting in The Ellis County Press, a newspaper I’ve consistently read over the years, thanks to the Hatfields and news editor Joey Dauben - folks I consider friends.
So, when I see the ECP going after these small-time crooks who are clearly not working for the people they claim to serve, it makes me happy to see that hard-hitting journalism is not dead.
In fact, it’s alive and well and, even though I now call Oklahoma home, I will continue to read the ECP (hopefully) over the next decade and beyond.
Keep up the good work, gang!
