It seems like it’s been forever since I last wrote a blog.
And so much has been going on.
Of course, there will be more time — and space — to talk about things in the future posts, so I’ll keep this one brief.
To catch up on things, the newsroom has been busy. We have been working hard to work on our “Annual Report” section. It was four sections of local stories. It featured “Hidden Gems” from our area (thank you Officer Baumgart for the suggestion).
It takes an incredible amount of work to put together those sections. It’s a lot of writing, photography and layout.
But I think I speak for everyone here when we say we are proud of the work we did.
I’m also pretty confident that my co-workers share the sentiment that we are happy it’s over — and we can move to the next one.
For me, that means back to my city reporting. I have a few stories in the works that I’m excited to investigate more now that I have some time.
I went head first (pun intended) into the new debate for the outdoor swimming pool, and will put that one aside until the city council addressed it again.
But there are some other issues on the horizon, including the opening of the new senior center, the future of bioscience in Worthington and the hiring of a new WREDC manager.
Another story coming soon, which won’t be that big of a deal, is the sale of 7.1 acres on Stower Drive. I have a hunch as to who will buy it and why, but I’ll wait until there is an official announcement for that one.
For now, I’ll leave it at that, bid you adieu.
Until next time.
