I have been given the opportunity to join other local residents on a cultural exchange trip to Inasa, Japan, a small town about three-and-a-half hours west of Tokyo.
This trip will be taking place between Oct. 30 and Nov. 6 so, while I am abroad, former Toledo columnist and local independent publisher Jake Morgan will be acting as Guest Editor of the Town Crier.
Normal lines of communication (firstname.lastname@example.org and (360) 785-3151) will be open, so those with news and community events to share will still be able to do so. With Morgan’s background in journalism, as well as his history in the local area, I expect the paper will be left in able hands.
Hopefully we will have a number of interviews and pictures to share when I return.
