For those of you not aware, The Bloomsburg Daily was born on October 1st, 2011. We began this site because, quite simply, we had questions that we couldn’t find the answers to.
That isn’t to say that the information we sought (and continue to seek) isn’t already out there somewhere; we just couldn’t easily find it. So it occurred to us that others may be in the same position. We made this space to share whatever answers we find with you.
The site will continue to evolve and (hopefully) grow. We are very excited about the prospects that lie ahead. One of the most exciting things for me personally is that, since we have chosen to share our answers with you online, not only is everything we write archived, searchable, and shareable — it’s interactive. If you have a comment on something that we “published” two days, weeks, or even months ago, it’s still available to all and open to discussion.
This isn’t just a newspaper without the ink and paper; it’s a conversation. Up until now, we’ve been doing most of the talking. But now it’s your turn to speak:
At 6pm on Tuesday, October 18th, Mayor Knorr will be on-hand at the Bloomsburg Fire Department Social Hall to facilitate a post-mortem discussion of the town’s flood response protocol and recovery.
The Mayor and Town Council will be there. Representatives from the EMA, Police, Fire, and Code Enforcement will be there.
6pm on Tuesday night might not be a convenient time for you to be there, but we urge you to make the time to do so. We know we aren’t the only ones with questions and observations on this topic. The more people who show up and make their voices heard, the better.
We will be at the meeting Tuesday night, too, reporting as close to live as possible on the discussion.
If you can’t make it but you have questions or comments you want to pass along to the representatives, our intrepid reporter, Derek Gittler can be reached at:
But we can’t guarantee that we’ll have a chance to ask all of your questions — the only way to do that is to come and ask them yourself.
Will you be there to speak for Bloomsburg?
