I first came to know Zhenjiang Daily in 1990 when I was a sophomore in Danyang Middle School.At the end of the spring semester of that year, Ding Xiaoxiang, my Chinese teacher, came to me and told Zhenjiang Daily that he had published an essay calling for me to participate in the “Jiangzhou Cup” Middle school students “Love my National Defense” composition contest, which was jointly held by the Political Department of Zhenjiang Military Sub-division and Zhenjiang Daily.To be honest, AT that time, I had never seen anything in Zhenjiang Daily and had never published an article in the newspaper. Besides, I was very nervous in the final study, so I just answered a few sentences casually and didn’t take them to heart.After the final examination, Mr. Ding asked me to come to the school to help transcribe the score. He also mentioned to me the matter of asking for an essay and asked for a newspaper. This was the first time I had seen Zhenjiang Daily.Reference essay requirements, I soon wrote a “blue sky Rhapsody”, Ding teacher guided me to modify two drafts, sent to the newspaper agency essay office.About a week later, a letter arrived from the newspaper. It was rejected.In the letter, the editor said that the basic of the article was good, but the content was a little empty and the true feelings were not enough. At the end of the article, he also listed several suggestions for revision in detail.Unfortunately, over the years, the zealous editor’s name has been forgotten.According to the revision opinions of the editor, I went to the school library for many times to consult the air Force materials of our army, and went to danyang Park twice to dive into the cockpit of a retired mig-15 fighter jet on display, which inspired my writing.On this basis, and under the careful guidance of Teacher Ding, the manuscript was again posted to the newspaper.One evening in late August, when school was about to start, my neighbor accidentally told me that he had read an article of mine in Zhenjiang Daily.I was so excited about this news that I urged him to go to work overnight and rummaged through a pile of newspapers for nearly an hour. Finally, I found it on page 3 of Zhenjiang Daily on July 27.Compared to the original manuscript, not only the title was changed to “my blue sky dream”, and the content has also been deleted, more than 800 words only left more than 400 words, is a standard “tofu block”, but this is enough to let me excited, after all, is his composition for the first time become type.Shortly after the National Day, I received the notice of winning the second prize, which was a Modern Chinese Dictionary.I have kept the newspaper, the award letter and the prize. I have kept it through many moves.After graduating from high school in 1991, I joined the army and was admitted to the Nanjing Artillery Academy in 1994.After attending the military academy, the squadron set up a news reporting group. Relying on the small essay in Zhenjiang Daily, I successfully entered the news reporting group. I started from writing the squadron’s blackboard newspaper and campus broadcast, and began to learn to write news.In the past four years, he has published more than 30 articles on media such as PLA Daily and Nanjing Daily.When I graduated from the university in 1998, I was selected to work in the university because of my news writing skills. More than a year later, I was selected to work as a news officer in the Propaganda Section of the Political Department. After that, I gradually worked as the chief of the propaganda section and the chief of the propaganda section.It was in 2018 that he became acquainted with Zhenjiang Daily again.I transferred to zhenjiang City Management Bureau to work, in charge of publicity, and the daily is naturally the key media for publicity.The work of urban management is closely related to the people’s livelihood.In my work, I paid attention to strengthen communication and coordination with zhenjiang Daily and other media, timely reported the highlights of urban management work and typical deeds of urban management team, so that the public can better understand urban management, understand urban management, support urban management.Around the Spring Festival of 2020, in the face of the sudden outbreak of the novel coronavirus, the city’s urban management system acted upon the orders and quickly set up special working teams. Party members and cadres rushed to the front to build a solid defense line for epidemic prevention and control in all aspects including law enforcement inspection, sanitation and cleaning, and garbage collection and transportation. I wrote a news report based on this and submitted it to the newspaper.The headline of Zhenjiang Daily on February 7 was “Party members and cadres of urban management System join the Frontline of Epidemic Prevention and control”, which played a very encouraging role in encouraging urban management personnel to resolutely win the battle against epidemic prevention and control.In recent years, the Municipal Facilities Management Office has taken the initiative to respond to people’s concerns, do a good job of people’s livelihood, and actively promote the establishment of “Road Doctor” party building brand.I organized and wrote the draft of “Road Doctor” Playing The City’s Joyful Song “, which was published on the front page of Zhenjiang Daily on August 9, 2020 and received a good response from the society.At the end of that year, the municipal facilities Management office was awarded the “top ten service vanguard” of municipal organs.”Difficult parking, difficult parking” is a common problem in modern cities, but also the focus of public attention.Since last year, parking combined with the “I do practical things for the masses” practice activities, through the increase and reduction of parking parking, time-limited dislocation parking, advocating green travel and other measures, effectively alleviate the problem of difficult parking.I organized the writing of the article “Parking Butler” for the Beauty of The City “, which was reported on the front page of Zhenjiang Daily on October 18, 2021. After that, citizens have more understanding and tolerance of “parking butler”.It has been nearly 30 years since I first met Zhenjiang Daily in 1990, but I still remember how the daily inspired me to write.Leisure, through the thick big this work scrapbook, first book title page that has been yellowing “my” dream “blue sky”, always make me stirs lush published “debut” memory and recall the zeal of the unknown editor, journal of the grace and enlightenment of the way to fill my heart again, let a person reaping warm moved again and again…(Xiang Chi-ming)
