Sometimes you have a nagging need to know something–about your neighborhood, your town, your world. You might turn to a close friend or even post your question on Facebook or another social media platform, but can you always rely on the answers you’ll get? Perhaps you’ll get so many conflicting answers that you won’t even know which one is right.
Despite having reams of information available at our fingertips, thanks to technology, in 2018 it sometimes seems harder than ever to find the correct answers when we need them.
That’s why Saucon Source–your source for reliable local news and information–is recruiting experts to help answer your questions that pertain to our local area. Because if you have a question about something, chances are others do, too.
Questions might relate to topics such as local history, current affairs, business, politics, sports and other topics of typically general interest.
All submitted questions should be of local interest, and we reserve the right not to answer questions that do not meet that criterion. Questions that are personal, invasive, obscene or anonymous will not be answered.
To submit a question, simply use the Contact Us form in the menu bar on the website and put “Ask Saucon Source” in the subject line and your question in the message box. You can also include an optional file upload.
Please include as much detail as possible and be sure to include your correct email so we can contact you with follow-up questions if necessary.
Questions that are overly complex or vague–such as “Does anyone know what happened to the old red barn along the road near Joe’s farm?”–may not be considered for research/publication due to time and other constraints.
We will do our best to find someone to answer it in a post on the website, and if it’s not possible to answer it, we’ll do our best let you know.
If you’re interested in helping answer local questions–about a particular topic or in general questions–please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number and a little information about yourself and why you’d like to help others as an “answerer.” An interest in local history and news, developed writing skills, online research skills and familiarity with the Saucon Valley area are preferred qualifications, however all applicants will be considered.
