March has something for everyone. If you like sports, there’s March Madness and the start of baseball season. If you love film actors, there’s the Academy Awards. For the Irish (and the Irish wannabe’s), there’s St. Patrick’s Day. For the history buffs, it’s Women’s History Month. For the animal lovers, March 1 is National Pig Day.
March is fickle when it comes to the weather – one day it’s snowing and the next day it’s sunny and 70. Colorado skiers welcome spring skiing – when jackets are thin and sunscreen is thick.
“In like a lion and out like a lamb” has been the mantra of March since the 17th century. March is the month of unknowns and the light at the end of winter’s tunnel.
Speaking of unknowns, in the past couple of months, we’ve had glitches in our fairly new newspaper layout design that has resulted in things like misplaced paragraphs and subheads. Our No. 1 priority is to bring you a clean, concise and easy-to-read newspaper. We are working through the problems and making a few changes in our proofing process to meet your expectations – and ours.
You’ll also note that some months our sports coverage is better than others. Because we are a monthly newspaper, it’s a challenge to keep it interesting and impossible to keep it up-to-date. We would like to focus on short stories that spotlight teams or individuals – of all ages. We’re open, and we welcome your ideas and newsy sports blasts! Coaches and parents: Send us your “stuff.”
We have an array of stories this month, from stormwater drainage issues to marijuana taxes benefitting schools. We’re in the “weeds” with marijuana stories since the whole legalization thing is an ongoing work in progress.
Don’t forget to support local business! And don’t forget to change that clock: “spring forward” March 9.
Enjoy March, and think spring!
See you in April!
