Homewood 100 - Positioning

Posted on February 4, 2011 at 11:34 PM

Okay, I know that it is probably silly to even post anything this weekend that is NOT related to the Super Bowl, but I need to get this out there.

For the second time in six months, the Post-Gazette is offering a buyout. Yesterday, I told them that I am taking it. Monday, Feb. 21, will be my last day as a Post-Gazette employee.

The primary reason for taking the buyout is because my list of other things that I want to do was getting longer, while my time on earth is getting shorter.

One of the biggest items on that list is the Homewood 100 initiative. Come Feb. 22, I will be in a much better position to give Homewood 100 the time that it needs.

But I know that even with my newfound time, I cannot pull this off alone. So to every one of you who responded to my first post about Homewood 100 by offering to help - expect to hear from me the week of February 21st. There's enough work and glory to go around smile

kxm, thanks for the heads-up about Patch.org - I was somewhat familiar with Patch.com, but not with its nonprofit counterpart.

Everyone, please check out the calendar listings to your right.

Heyyyyyy....there's an event tomorrow afternoon....I should go.

Oh wait. I'll be in a training all day tomorrow and Sunday.

Can anyone here, anyone, visit the African-American Read In? Take a cell phone picture? Write a single paragraph describing what you saw/heard?

Yes, this is insanely short notice for even asking, but that only means that I need practice at asking.

If you're able to do it, please TEXT me at 412 512 0082 (because I will be in a training, it will be much easier to receive and respond to a text than to either a phone call or an email). Thanks!
