Happy New Year, Saline!

For quite a while I have thought about starting this blog. I was hesitant to make the commitment, plus don't we all have information overload? But the ideas have been piling up and they deserve an audience, because Saline is a special place (Michigan too!). And then there is the new year resolution thing, not that I buy into that too much, but it does provide one with a little more focus.
There are so many things to share with you. Saline has had a lot of changes over the last few years and the state of Michigan has also. The one thing that is most important in reflection is what each of us contribute. Our community is full of amazing people, so is our state. Share your stories here. This month will be spent on local businesses. These folks are our neighbors, and they are battling the economy, internet competition, and the post holiday shopping blues. Keep them in mind when you shop...each dollar spent at a local business helps promote a unique sustainable Saline. Hope you come visit us in Saline in 2009!


  1. Yes! There are many great things to share about Saline, and it's so exciting to see you setting up a forum like this to get the conversation going. I'm a firm believer that this is *exactly* the sort of approach Michigan needs to help us transition and become a model for how states can 'retool' themselves and succeed even in challenging economic times. I look forward to reading great stuff here - Bravo!

  2. Nice blog, Gretchen. Thanks for launching a fine mouthpiece for our fair city. Good luck!

  3. I'm glad to see this! I rarely post about local stuff, but I love reading it (and kudos to the A2 Chronicle for highlighting your blog and The Baker's Nook this week :-) ).
