The inauguration of Joe Biden as president and Kamala Harris as VP is less than a day away as I write this.
I just wrote a whole lot of stuff about the election and lies and the power of one man to con thousands in one fell swoop.
But then I deleted it all. All too dark and gloomy. Sure, he needs to pay for what he did. Actions have consequences, and his words on 1/6/21 caused actions that nearly toppled our democracy.
But at noon on 1/20/21, he will be gone. Our democratic republic has already risen from the carnage that he created, but it will positively soar after he is gone from Washington. He’s not gone yet, as I write this. He still has hours left to do more damage. So, no celebrating yet. But soon. Very soon.
This week’s issue has some fun stuff. The fields at the youth baseball complexes got some making over. I know what 50/70 means! (See page 12 if you want to know, too).
Our own Bob Baldwin was named superintendent of the year. They sent this wicked cool, air-brushy looking professional head shot with the press release. I had to rib him about it, of course. And then I pulled a picture from one of our local events and used that, too. See page 6 for that. And congratulations Dr. Baldwin.
We also have meeting coverage. BPW is on page 4. Board of Health is on page 7. Oh GAWD, here we go again. I don’t have the energy tonight, really I don’t. Read it yourself, you’ll see what I’m talking about. Conflict of interest much? What else is new?
We also have our weekly column by high school student Elizabeth DaCunha (page 11). This week, she writes about her classmates’ opinions on the vaccine.
And Rob Gonsalves is back with a new DVDevelopments on page 20, writing about the future of movies.
There’s more in here, of course. As you look for it all, please take note of who our advertisers are and let them know you saw their ads in the Neighb News
Until next week then, see ya,
