The West Central Tribune newsroom blogs about the story behind the story at Reaching a news source against all odds


One of the most basic and useful tools at a reporter's desk is a phone book.

Or at least it used to be.

More people are giving up their land lines for cell-only service, and so far there aren't phone books with cell phone numbers.

That's made it more challenging to find folks and it's forced reporters to use others methods, like doing a Google search or hunting for names on Facebook or Twitter and sending electronic messages with a plea to "call me."
