It’s been an interesting weekend. An act of faith. Trying to take over 5,000 stories, 7,000 images, and far too many words and take them from one piece of software and implant them in another.
It can be scary to change; to try and improve. It’s not for the faint of heart, but in life when we come to Cross Roads we have to make a decision.
My decision was to stomp on the gas pedal and burn some asphalt.
It was good to take a break from writing this weekend, but I missed it. I’m back as are all of the Cornwall Free News team. There are more new things unfolding too including a return of Seawayradio.com.
We have new people joining the team and in spite of the devastation caused by certain elements at City Hall and a certain Service clubs attempt to run off our sponsors we are not only weathering that challenge, but starting to see immense support from the community.
As I’ve always said; it will never be the bad guys that run me off or cause the demise of CFN, but good people not standing up to them.
This community does have heart and it does care. I saw that this weekend when our maintenance message caused an outpouring of emails, phone calls, and facebook messages.
It also caused some petty nattering and that’s good because it exposes people like it did Graham Greer.
Luckily there are more good people out there than people like Mr. Greer and the clique.
Well there’s a ton of news to catch up on; Justin Trudeau winning his fight and most likely securing his chance to be the next Liberal leader; the Habs finally firing Pierre Gauthier, and like Hunter S Thompson’s crusade against Richard Nixon, I’m going to see if we can further expose the exploits of our CAO Paul Fitzpatrick here in Cornwall and those that seem bent on protecting him from questions from the public and abuse of the taxpayers limited resources.
And having zoomed straight through those crossroads I wish to thank all of you again for your support and viewership of The Cornwall Free News. We’ve added some new features which I am still learning and hopefully you’ll enjoy!
