Adding Three Minutes to My Commute

We moved out of our old building surprisingly quickly. Pictured is my old office after I removed all the "mission critical" items.

Readers of my newspaper are probably aware that we moved to a new location this week. Our old building was no longer a good fit, especially since we no longer have a press (our paper is printed in Norman). We’ve been looking for some time at a better-sized location that would not only save us some money, it would be safer, cleaner, and less expensive.

We’ve been in the new building for just a few days, but so far, I like it a lot.

When I first came to Ada in 1988, I got an apartment downtown, which I kept for 16 years until I got married. My daily commute for all those years was just three minutes. After we got married in 2004, my commute from Byng to Ada took about 10 minutes.

Our new office is … get this… half a block from my old apartment. It’s a small-town thing, I guess. Moving here added just three minutes to my daily commute.

My new office is just a space right now, but soon I will make it my own, and home to the photography department of The Ada News.
