Viriyalila & Everyone,
The stories for the next issue look great. Thanks for your continued
efforts. Is forwarding potential stories to the imc-nh-print list useful
too? I'll keep that up if it is.
To garner more local stories, perhaps we could write up a short feature
for the site encouraging readers to submit local stories. We know there
are more than 20,000 visiting our site each month, so they're out there.
A lot of them, no doubt, are politically active in groups and such.
Hopefully they'd be willing to promote their own efforts and support their
local IMC at the same time. I'll try to write something up when I get a
chance, unless someone else is motivated before me.
