If you'r reading this then you're invited -- Sept. 23, Tues., from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the First Congregational Church for ...
. . . A listening session with the editors and organizers of The Greylock Independent -- a monthly, regional news source.
One snowy night last winter, 55 people showed up to a meeting called to discuss how we as a community want to respond to a distant corporation.s shutting down both of our area's publications.
Five of us started meeting regularly to try to figure out if it was feasible to respond to that call. The result is the formation of The Greylock Independent, maintaining a news web site and putting out a monthly print publication.
Now we are looking for some response from the community about how we are doing. Is the news and commentary we have provided in our first four issues and on our web site valuable? Are you willing to support us while we grow into a more capable news-gathering organization?
We want to know what you think. We need broad community participation to make this work. We need writers, we need readers, we need subscribers, and we need advertisers. So we are inviting the community to come together once again and share thoughts on the news environment of this area and where you'd like to see it go.
