BLOGS: I'm restarting my experiment in local blogging... Greater Dayton and Miami Valley stuff will now be featured at Gem City Journal and Hamilton/Fairfield/West Chester stuff will be found at Butler County Bugle. Don't worry, the important national and state stuff will still be found right here at WMD. If you are interested in participating in either of these experiments, please let me know...the more the merrier.
