Hey, it's been a while and I apologize. We at Times/Review had our annual Christmas holiday week, and I actually forced myself to relax.
Back from our break, things are, of course, nuts here at the newspaper, especially since we came back to a Tuesday, which is crunch day in any week — never mind the week after a week off!
But miracles do happen (they happen every week in fact) and we managed to get the papers done and out to the printer on time.
I don't have any big news to report this week on the Calverton Industries matter. I have had some interesting conversations with people — both in "officialdom" and otherwise — which were, unfortunately, off the record. I expect some things will be happening soon and that this story will certainly be continued. I also expect it to take some pretty interesting turns as the weeks go by.
This week's papers contain our annual "People of the Year" awards. I am always blown away by the amazing people who live and work in our community. It's an honor to be able to recognize them in this way, to show our appreciation for all that they do. It's also always fun to surprise some of these folks like this.
Tomorrow you can read all about exploits on the ski slopes of Vermont. Let's just say for now that I'm not competing in the next Winter Olympics.
