I'm not quite certain what it will ultimately turn out to be, but I hope to use this forum as an informal way to keep readers posted on developing news items in Perry County, and to give my own opinions on ongoing stories we cover in print. I also expect this will be a good format for news items that just don't "fit," either literally or figuratively, in the paper.
Each posting will also offer a space for comments from readers (if there are any), and it is my wish that you, dear (potential) readers will have a chance to let me know what you think – about local and state news, about the paper, about Perry County, and about life in general. I'm actually pretty excited about the exchange this format promises.
Finally, this is a new project. I can't predict, yet, how often I will update – though I plan to post stories throughout the week. I hope you'll join me here online as we continue our conversation on public affairs and community happening. Believe me when I tell you that there is no place in the world I would rather live than Perry County, and it's because of you. But in print, the conversation feels kind of one-sided. You get rather lonely. I invite you, then, to visit perryherald.blogspot.com regularly, and talk back.
See you soon.
