A snow-capped week
Front Page, week of December 3, 2022
I hope you’re all prepared for winter! We certainly had plenty of time this year.
I sent out Art’s Corner earlier this week, because it mostly covered things happening today. It’s republished below, but I really hope you had the chance to read it before today.
I’m also publishing a column from Bruce Johanson for the first time. Bruce recently retired from reporting, but started writing a weekly column. This week’s begins a series on local Native American history, which is great timing.
I was recently contacted by a reader who was interested in seeing more about such history, so I decided this was a perfect chance to debut Bruce’s new column. I hope you like it.
Every week also moves us a little closer to the new website. I’m looking forward to having it done, but at the same time, I don’t want to rush it.
