Don't worry, it's nothing like the last few times I've said "new" on this page. This time the new involves online content.
Every Tuesday or Wednesday to start, we'll have something fresh and new up on the website. This week is expanded coverage of the Feb. 12 Affordable Housing Committee meeting.
And, if you need to get the word out on something - the day before or the day of - send me an email, or give me a call, and I will make sure we get it online.
One of the things I talked about at a Rotary Luncheon (there I am on the right) recently, was the importance of community involvement, which is paramount.
Whether it's manning a booth at the Reindog Parade, a Girl Scout cookie table at Paresky Center or the ticket table at Snowfest, as a parent or resident (or both), you're involved in something around town. It's the engine that makes the town go.
As an outsider, sometimes it can be intimidating working into an already well-oiled machine. Sometimes you, like me, are watching the merry-go-round spin, waiting for the perfect opportunity to jump on.
I jumped on. Now it's your turn, once again. You'll see on page 5, the WRLF piece I talked about last week, and, yes, there are bears involved.
What do you do? Are there bears involved? These are questions only you can answer, and I would love to hear some of your answers.
I know someone must have tangled with bears, or reindogs, around the arctic circle.
Maybe not, but I bet you have something to share with the rest of the class. It could be like a community forum. It doesn't have to be a lesson or chore, it could be your view on whatever you might be into locally at the moment - food, family, politics (if we can keep it civil). Email your idea to you-know-where. In case not: email@example.com
