For whatever reason, the proverbial wheels came off the vehicle and we lost several of the people who had been assisting us in recent seasons. Efforts to replace them were mostly unsuccessful.
In the old days I would have taken on more of the task myself, but I'm spending more time these days than in the past working at my "real" jobs. Also contributing is the reality that newspapers and their staffs, which have always been the foundation of what the NYSSWA does, are a shell of their former selves. There are simply not enough reporters available these days with the time to contribute to the process. That's not a criticism but rather the reality of the media landscape.
