The new year sure has come in with a bite to it, and in more ways than the crazy-cold temperatures outside. This week, I had the misfortune of writing some horribly depressing news stories. And those on top of news from around the world, and I don’t feel as optimistic about the start of the new year as I normally do.
Typically, I enjoy the start of a new year. The thought of a blank slate, so to speak, keeps me energized through our blustery winters...at least until spring hits. Then I rely on the sunshine and flowers to keep me going. I’m hoping that the sour news coming across my desk turns into stories of happiness and people in our community doing great things for each other.
If you know of any such stories, or hear of anything going on in the community that you think we should write about, we are always looking for input. Email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org, stop by our office to chat, or give me a call at 816-761-6200.
This is your community newspaper, and we want to write the stories that you want to read. We look forward to doing just that in 2015. Happy New Year!
