In this, the colourful season in the hills, we ask municipal councillors and candidates about their lives in politics. And we say a very fond farewell to Alison Hird who for the past ten years has supplied our calendar events.
I admit to a certain kneejerk cynicism but I also have faith that things can change for the better when a group of informed and engaged citizens puts their concerted minds and goodwill to the undertaking.
Once again this year, we profile ten exceptional “local heroes,” citizens whose extraordinary commitment and service make these hills a better place to live for all of us. We also offer our annual review of books and CDs by the writers, illustrators and musicians in our midst.
