As they say when one door closes another opens up. Or at least we hope in this case that it dose not get slammed in our faces. Tempe Thought’s first of 1,682 posts was almost four years ago, “Parking Tickets for Customers on Saturdays” written by yours truly. I don’t pretend to be a very accomplished author. The fact of the matter however is that every morning I would get up and wander outside in my skimpies to get the newspaper, only to find that the “Community Section” rarely had anything to do with my community and decided that I would offer something different and hopefully better.
If I learned anything as a Tempe Councilman for eight years it is that our community holds a place in our hearts and that our local news should not include every other surrounding community. My bet is that they feel the same way. Thus Tempe Thoughts was hatched and we have published 208 weekly newsletters since our inception.
Internet time however is like dog years. You better change with the times or get left in the electronic dust. MyLocalNews.US is about creating local new sources for every community in the United States that has the inclination to find out what is happening in their back yard.
Just like Cold Stone Creamery our roots are from Tempe, Arizona and my true hope is that you will be proud as to whats to come and hope you will stay along for the read. Thank you.
