"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

This blog was started more than twenty years ago. At the back of my mind, I always felt lack of comments meant slight interest in the subject matter . I read numbers indicating fantastic success of other blogs. When I left Council last time, I thought I should change the focus.

I tried. Now and then...here and there... but I couldn’t make the switch. My critique ,in parts of Council’s Tuesday  Zoom meeting scored higher numbers than  before. When checking “traffic”  ,I noticed a line indicating “Comments awaiting moderation”.   I’d never seen it before. I had  never clicked on the line that brought it forward. When I did, lo and behold, I discovered numerous unpublished comments going back several years.

There are definite hazards in operating  a computer with a limited understanding . I may have stumbled over most. The first was the worst. I paid thousands of dollars I could ill afford, to create a Web site. Then discovered it wasn’t needed to publish a blog . By then I learned initial outlay was not the last: annual fees of thousands were necessary maintain the domain.

Anyway,  too late now to publish the comments. Some were never relevant. People in other lands with no competence in english saw the chance  to comment as opportunity for a schille.  They would never have been published. For the rest , I can  only offer my apology with explanation as noted.

I promise to do a better job and I am thrilled to see more interest in the town’s affairs than  previously realized .
