Paul Adair is a 21-year Germantown resident, retired scientist, writer, and lecturer.
All community bloggers received a notice today that Germantown NOW, as well as the other local NOW sites will no longer be accepting new articles, effective March 31. So this will be my last posting on this site.
We started the Just Sayin' blog on March 15, 2012 and have published over 220 articles over the course of the last four years. We hope that we provided you with an informative and progressive commentary on local, state, and national politics. We have tried to provide readers with a uniquely Germantown perspective.
We tried to go beyond being a mere stenographer for elected officials, bringing readers information found nowhere else on actions of the local school board and on local election results. We have dug into the morass of bills and politics in Madison. We have covered the 5th Congressional District and its role in the national political discourse. I hope that we have brought an interesting and forward-looking viewpoint into the extreme-right media bubble that is Washington County.
I thank all of the people that have encouraged me in this effort by your kind words, your on-line comments, and by your sharing of these articles on social media. You have made this unpaid labor-of-love worthwhile. Now that blogging is an important part of my life, I will be exploring other outlets for my writing.
Best Regards to All,
