You Take the Good, You Take the Bad

And there you have another month blown by like so many leaves loitering in the breeze.

September ended with a first for me – the Associated Press picked up my story about the state compensating a Longview man for a decade of wrongful imprisonment, so I’ve had my biggest audience yet.

And was I ever happily surprised when I saw Ashtown Brewing had framed my story on their year anniversary and the state of beer in the city. Hey, any excuse to write about beer, a statement which luckily comes city editor-approved.

A recent Sunday centerpiece I was warned would “open a can of worms” on Longview’s troubled water was highly read and, being a story on water, highly commented upon.

Oh, and did I mention I went hunting for a bear (attack site)?

It’s a good life.
