Crotonblog, Refreshed

January 12, 2009

After an admittedly long time, the Crotonblog site redesign is well, pretty much up-to-date. Of course, a website is never done. Rather, they are in perpetual state of “works in progress.” That said, we’d appreciate your feedback on the newly-refreshed site.

Some other enhancements:

To expand our editorial offerings for ‘09, we are looking for three new bloggers to contribute to Crotonblog. If you’re interested, please tell us in three paragraphs about your column idea by using this form. Nom de Plumes welcome.

Please send us your Letters to the Editor by clicking here.

Oh, happy New Year too.

And based on what is seen on other blogs which claim to represent Croton, we really need to start speaking out loud and clear about the destructive policies of the current administration and the fact that progress in building up Croton over the last four years has regressed. We need to get back to constructing an all-inclusive community rather than one being dragged down by a few loud and negative voices.

We will sorely need every avenue of communication we can get during this upcoming election season. There are critical and important decision to be made by a few elected officials. These bad economic times make it crucial to decide well with decisions based on facts only and not heresay and speculation . We know from past experiences that both sides of the aisle have strong opinions and ideas and that’s what makes participatory government so valuable. The Mayor and Trustees are only representatives of us .. representative of ALL so it’s important that ALL opinions be listened to before making decisions in our names. Crotonblog, Crotonspace and ncnblog are all forums to be used and digested. The Mayor and Trustees would do well to check them all on a daily basis.

Welcome back Crotonblog, you were sorely missed! Just in time to allow clear thinking people to rebute the reckless, wildly inaccurate posts on other blogs and in letters to the Gazette.

Good Mrs. Smith. I’ve missed the crotonblog. We need a place to share ideas and opinions with our neighbors … either when we disagree and to support when we agree.

I’m a bit confused with the new process of leaving a comment on crotonblog. Must we type in our name every time and type the charachers in the captcha evry time?

I am delighted to see Crotonblog back on line again, it has been hard trying to follow the issues on the internet since other blog posters all seem extremely biased, very smug in their opinions and nauseatingly self-congratulatory. Election time is coming and we need to make sure that facts are known about the issues - not just one woman’s spin as has been the way for far too long in Croton.

Funny, it seems to me that all the blogs discussing Croton are “extremely biased”, “very smug”, and “nauseatingly self-congratulatory”, this one especially. It’s quite amazing how both sides of the coin wrap themselves in that Croton-loving flag known as ‘our beloved hamlet.’ Get off it folks! You are all self-righteous prats. If you don’t see it, you’re not paying attention.

I disagree, we absolutely are paying attention and are pleased to have Crotonblog back again to air our comments and thoughts on what is happening, or not as is often this case now, in this village. Note: Croton is not and never has been a hamlet.
I happen to prefer the discussions that take place on this blog since they are not all orchestrated by one woman who has had her own agenda in this village for years. I believe we are all still entitled to voice our opinions - I am sure you will correct me if I am wrong.
