I am pretty proud of The Valley Peak and the fact that I have a voice in our commu-nity. It feels good telling folks what I do for a living. One of the questions I hear most often is, â€œWhere do you get all your infor-mation? You must be on the Internet a lot.â€ And I smile.
Because it is pretty much the opposite of that. I walk out my front door and there it is. Life. Right in front of me. Nearly every-one I bump into has a little story about the valley. Or they are quick to say, â€œYou should get down to the beach/arena/ball diamond/etc. and check out the things happening there today.
I try to attend every event possible, espe-cially the unique little ones. I visit lots of businesses and restaurants to see what they have going on. Attending community events really helps also.
My favourite answer is, â€œI am always gath-ering information. I might even write about this conversation.â€ So there you go folks. For all of you who have asked and heard that answer, you are now in print. Thanks for all your comments.
I really appreciate that you take the time to read the stuff that I come up with in The Valley Peak.
