Interested in Middletown? There’s a pretty sweet newish blog dedicated to filling in the gaps from the sparse “official” media coverage of the town called the “Middletown Eye.” Check it out at http://www.middletowneyenews.blogspot.com/ . Its “invite to write” explains:
Think of Middletown. Forty-two square miles. An active Police Department. Municipal meetings nearly every night. Cultural performances galore. Sports at many amateur levels. There’s no way that even a handful of reporters can do the town justice.
But what if we become the reporters – those of us who go to the meetings, and concerts, ballgames and social events. With a digital camera, an audio recorder and a laptop, we might be able to do a far better job than the newspapers ever could.
Middletown lovers, unite!
