There are, however, problems for most of us when it comes to finding out what’s going on, which is why I’ve decided to keep going with the project. 

We’re not exactly over-endowed with media outlets in these parts and there are always going to be space constraints in the local paper, so these pages give me the chance to expound at some length and raise issues that I believe are going to be important in the future.
