Get away from it all - but not from the Danville Weekly

Folks take vacations to get away from their everyday life - but don't forget to take along your hometown newspaper. Be sure to pack the Danville Weekly when you travel - whether to Tahoe or to Turkey - and snap a photo of yourself or friends or family reading the paper to share with us.

This feature is popular with our readers and with the newspaper staff, too. We love to see where you go and how you choose to set up your photo. Whether readers pose on the beach - or in the jaws of a shark - we love them all. We especially appreciated the Cappiello family who encased the Danville Weekly in airtight plastic to bring along on their scuba diving adventure in Mexico.

So far we have traveled to 80 countries and 25 states and this issue marks the end of our third year of publication. As we begin year No. 4 next week, we look forward to many more countries and, hopefully, getting to the other 25 states.

Whether you travel on business or for pleasure, thanks for taking us along. Send photos to

Dolores Fox Ciardelli, editor

Dear Dolores,

I recall last Fall standing in front of Notre Dame in Paris and staging a wonderful picture for The Danville Weekly of your paper being read. We staged the picture based on your instructions and it is part of our PPT digital story of our wonderful trip.

I don't recall the picture being published or even acknowledged. Should I expect to see it in this week's issue?

Best wishes,

Indeed you should. You can see it online by clicking under the cover photo of this week's issue on "PDF Version: Section 1." This leads you to a PDF of the actual paper.

Sorry it takes so long. We have a backup since last summer of photos waiting to run.

And - we do acknowledge each photo we receive.

Dear Dolores,

Thank you for your response.

It will be Hal's next picture to stand reading The Danville Weekly in "another community" and feel quite at home. We can all imagine how many opportunities there are for such pictures because you have been so very successful in serving your readership with real regional news, information and interaction.

Such volume of pictures are your applause,
