Two new blogs for Plainfield?

Sensible advice from our British cousins.
The world of Plainfield bloggers has grown. Two further blogs have come to view, and I am considering including them in the daily CLIPS roundup.

Dr. John A. Carone, who celebrated his 90th birthday in November, was profiled in a recent Courier News story (see here). I am reaching out to him via snail mail to see if he is interested. His blog is titled Giovanni's Random Thoughts -- check it out.

Norman Ortega, whose recent bid for a Board of Ed seat came up short, has joined with a group of other Plainfield residents to produce the blog Plainfield Latino in Spanish and English. Check it out.

In an email to Mr. Ortega, I explained that my policy for including a blog on the daily CLIPS roundup was that it not be anonymous. (I did make one exception with a blog by a Plainfield Public Schools employee who was worried about retaliation; that person is no longer blogging.) Ortega is checking with his co-writers and says he will get back to me. If they agree to put their names to their posts, I will be happy to add them to the list.

The more the merrier.

Good Morning Dan;
