Hey there, people of the 413. Let me ask you a few questions ...
♦ What issues matter most to you in your local community?
♦ Are you receiving the news and information you need about those issues?
♦ And are you free next Thursday?
If want to share your answers to these questions, then come share your vision for local news in the Pittsfield area from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 14, at the Berkshire Athenaeum.
This gathering is free and open to the public. Light snacks will be provided, as well as an opportunity to voice your opinion via a news consumer survey. For questions, or to alert the organizers of special accommodations, contact lead researcher Rachel Edens at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This gathering is hosted by the Solutions Journalism Network, an independent nonprofit group that seeks to support journalism that examines responses to social problems — in addition to the problems themselves. More information here: www.solutionsjournalism.org. Representatives from local news organizations are invited to attend.
But, before you start writing down all those ideas, let us fill your head with the day's news that's fit to print ...
