When I attend a meeting in Bethlehem Township, I try my best to have story up at midnight or soon thereafter to both inform you and be educated by you. This is what I consider my first draft. Later in the week, after digesting your comments and correcting errors that you've pointed out, I re-write the story for The Bethlehem Press.
That small weekly has decided it would like to be a bit more spontaneous. So about once every month, I will overnight a meeting story and watch as my first draft is published there instead of here. My lucky number came up last night with Bethlehem Township. So you should see my story in The Bethlehem Press sometime today, hopefully this morning. I will update this post with a link when it happens.
What happened? Did Township Commissioners decide to do something about all-terrain vehicles, which have terrorized some residents? Was Breslin there? How's the Brodhead Road reconstruction project going? Is Mike Hudak against it or is he upset that trucks in the industrial park have ruined the road? Did Commissioners agree to hire a part-time clerk? Was the public opposed? Are township employees and firefighters getting a discount at the community center? Are they giving a discount to bloggers, too? Does anyone know why Coroner Zach Lysek came and asked everyone how they were feeling?
My story is written, and hopefully, you'll be able to see it soon.
