It's either feast or famine when it comes to news

Posted Wednesday, April 1, 2009, at 9:46 PM

Too much to do, too little time. For the last couple of weeks, all my systems feel like they're operating in overload mode with an "overdue" light flashing somewhere.

When you're looking for local news, it's either feast or famine -- the famine comes in late winter, the feast comes with spring weather. It started a couple of weeks ago -- plenty to write about but not always enough hours in the day.

My list includes a stop in to the WJ Library. They're planning something special this month and other county libraries may be too -- National Library Week is April 12-18. At the library in Worthington, they're making plans for an open house. Gotta go -- they always have really good treats.

There's a new store opening in Worthington next week -- Richard Rush and Justin Coleman say they'll have a little bit of everything at super low prices. It's a welcome addition to any small town, especially during an economic downturn.

The location for the younger generation and people who've lived in the area less than 15 years or so, is on the corner where you turn off 67 onto Jefferson St. If you've been around for awhile, it's in the building where Jimmy Noel's Grocery Store used to be. And if you're a Senior Citizen, it's down on "The Diamond Point." If you drive over to check it out, you'll find lots of good antique stores and places to eat.

Also in Worthington, I don't know what's going on with the skate park but I have gotten a heads-up about what's going to be on the agenda at the next town council meeting -- a discussion about an increase in the sewer rates. As I understand it, a relatively minor increase will be proposed -- like around $5 a month or so -- not big, but an increase nonetheless.

In Greene County news, the Salvation Army is busy gathering volunteers and ramping up to put together a list of folks across the county willing to help others in times of emergencies like we had last year -- floods and tornadoes. Story on the way.

And there's another story on the computer from the sheriff's department about the way things work when you call 911 from a cell phone -- you need to know where you are because they can't determine your exact location like they can when you call from a landline phone.

Last year I never did get over to PeeWee's house to take pictures of Lena's bean plant. I'm sure she's getting ready to start her outside work and this year, I'm going take a tour of her garden.

I've also got to stop in at T.W.'s house some day when I see him out and about. He lives down the street and I spotted an unusual creation sitting in his yard last week -- looked like a front page picture to me!

I'm not shy so I'll be the first to say, "NOW is not the time to decide to raise the sewer rates in Worthington!" I might just have to protest!
