When Gordon Stewart first broached the idea of to me and asked me to be editor, I thought I knew what it was going to be: a directory of services with a little local color that would occupy me for a couple of hours a day during the week. How mistaken I was for it quickly has become an active, 24/7/365 source for news and events in Philipstown as well as the surrounding area and it occupies many more hours of my day at a greater variety of times during the day than I could have imagined. I don’t say this to complain but to express my constant wonder at all that goes on in our corner of the world. Global events and issues manifest themselves here and local issues reflect the world at large. Over the past six months I have learned more about all aspects of Philipstown than I thought possible.
