A New Year and a New Look – Farewell to an Extreme Year

I’ve been making a few format changes recently and will continue to make more. The menu down the right side of the site will have links to older posts that I enjoyed. Links to other websites have also been updated. Suggestions are welcome.

Farewell 2007

What a strange year it has been. I must admit that I’ll not miss it one bit. Elections have come and gone. Great progress on my house restoration. My new roof leaking like a son of a b#tch. Lawsuits. Silvercrest saved. The Daisy Medical Building saved. Another county landmark (the County Annex) whose days are numbered. Losing the Bistro. Gaining a Winery downtown and Scribner Place on the rise. The Ritter house gets a healthy grant from Caesars. Vandals destroy windows at the Ritter house, twice. Greenway progress. Punks breaking the glass of the sidewalk lighting. Heat and drought. Massive amounts of rain.

A year of extremes indeed.

However, there’s reason for optimism for 2008. I’m looking forward to a year of focus, collaboration and moving forward for New Albany.

Happy New Year

It's the Holiday Season in New Albany

Here are some seasonal photographs I snapped during a stroll last year. Hope you enjoy.
