CV, third Sunday that I haven't received an inbound post message.
Not sure why this is. Sorry.
If sent already, please re-send.

Could you let us know if you are shutting down the site. The last two Sundays -- nothing got posted. I hope you keep it active, but just let us know one way or another. Thanks.

Not necessary, but if you sent something in and it wasn't posted, send again. Forgive my grief and tech issues.

Knew you would not post anything criticizing dear leader.
Glad to see you have not changed in all these years.

Good Sunday morning and welcome to your weekly recap of all the hot topics discussed on Beacon Citizen Network, its affiliated content providers, and Beacon affinity groups on social media. Admittedly, this has been a very tough week but sometimes it helps to take a look at what’s been happening locally and pray that the dark clouds forming on the larger horizon spare many good folks living around these parts. Over on Facebook, someone posted a picture of some gloves she found in her diaper bag. There were complaints about a new Scottish version of Hooters in Poughkeepsie, and a jolly joker complained that he left his car unlocked and someone stole his mints. But there was also good news. One citizen reported that Norwegian Air announced flights to and from Stewart. That sounds like a good thing. Someone invented a travel bingo game about Beacon that looked pretty clever and there were more than the usual announcements for good food and music -- doing their part to bring some needed cheer to our fair city. Have a great week good people and keep marching all you nasty women.

If your post doesn't involve Beacon NY it most likely will not be posted here.
Follow the rules please. TY.

Good Sunday morning and welcome to your weekly recap of the postings on Beacon Citizen Network, its affiliated content providers, and affinity groups on social media. This past week’s hot topics include nepotism, door-to-door religion peddlers, traffic, and the usual potpourri. One citizen asked for help locating a maroon car that swerved across the center line and ripped the side view mirror off his car. Others were very frustrated that it took as long as 15 minutes to turn onto I84 from 9D. They mostly blamed the timing of the traffic lights.
Many citizens complained that the Jehovah’s Witnesses were out and about and wouldn’t stop ringing their doorbells. Another claimed that the lot across from the post office remained empty because of rampant nepotism in the City, but she was not about to start naming names. In the odds and ends category, a citizen saw a man with a cane having trouble walking down Main Street because folks didn’t have the decency to clean their sidewalks, while one Main Street shopkeeper invited customers to come in to receive special messages from a diviner who works very closely with spirits. Another citizen wondered if anybody wanted his pet fish. He was giving them away. Have a great week and a reflective Martin Luther King Day good people.

Exactly the reason I enjoy your updates so much. Great perspective, humor and vibe. All the news that fits.
Thanks again, Alice

Alice, I suppose your message is an encouraging word for me because I'm the only one writing updates here. I actually haven't heard anyone question these weekly recaps in a few years, but perhaps they were deleted before I had a chance to see the comments. The last one I remember was from some citizen who wrote "who cares?" and that was a long time ago. Just so you know, I continue to enjoy this particular assignment. To document the changing zeitgeist of our small post-industrial town through the virtual postings of its citizens is more than interesting. I love the place and I love the posters and all their idiosyncrasies. I love seeing Beacon celebrate and sometimes struggle with its growth and identity from a virtual perch. It's a good gig, and one I'll continue for as long as I can.

Don't listen to them. I live for my updates from you!
