Happy new year! Welcome to the first Seeker edition of 2014.
Isn’t it fun to start a new year? Personally, I always find it to be a good time for me to spice things up, perhaps even take a resolution or two.
In business, it’s a time to reflect on the past year, analyzed what worked and what didn’t and plan for the future. It’s like getting a clean slate.
In the spirit of starting fresh, you will notice that our logo has undergone a makeover replacing Mai-Liis’ face and my own with a picture of our famous clock tower (thank you John Lucio for taking the picture). Our website has also gotten a facelift. Actually, it is more like a Botox injection than a facelift. It’s freshened up, rejuvenated without having changed so much that you won’t recognize it. Let us know what you think!
We have big plans for 2014. We already have started to work on our awards ceremony, which will take place on a Saturday for the first time. We also are talking with new columnists, signed up a new amateur meteorologist and are introducing a new coupon page. Fun, fun, fun!
But this year is especially exciting: it’s municipal election year. We are barely getting into the second week of the year and the political buzz is going around full spin. Already 2 people have formally announced that they are running for city council (see articles within) and we have heard that the next few weeks will see many more names put forth. We will be highly involved in the campaign and will bring you the news as we see it.
Thank you for your continuing readership! All the best to you and yours in 2014!
