Local Journalism

            Local journalism can be boring, covering borough council meetings, township committees, board of education, zoning board of adjustments and planning boards.  Out of all these meetings news most often comes out of the zoning board of adjustments.

            Most residents of these suburban communities have little concept about the form of government under which they live. Continue reading

The Beginning

 

            And, so where do I begin, yes in the beginning.
