Three things. It might wind up being more.
- Council was interesting tonight. The opposing sides really do bring out the best in both. Members disagree, but largely respectfully thus far, and there is a level of discussion that is intriguing. What’s more, for this first open meeting with the new council a number of people showed up and spoke. Actual civic participation! It’s great to see citizens engaged.
- I hate newsprint, if for no other reason than there is a limited supply of it. I’d be happy to write enough to keep Fraser viable for another decade or so, but the news hole for the council meeting was only 500 words. I wrote just about the city seal discussion, which has been ongoing now for months, and I’m figuring out how to use the rest to make stories for next week.
- I almost hit a moose on the way home. If I make it a year of late Monday nights without flattening my hood I’ll be surprised. The added bonuses of the North Country.
I could go on, but it’s late and I need to sleep. I’ve got a few things going on tomorrow that’ll have me around Berlin, and otherwise Wednesday I’ve got to figure out if I want to go to Concord for SEC deliberation. Too much going on for one reporter in this region; we sure could use more hands and more paper.
