Here’s a sneak pre­view of new con­tent we have lined up for you this com­ing week. 

Your Monday moti­va­tion from Erin Skinner Smith is all about stay­ing con­nect­ed with nature. Also on Monday, Wes Moody drops a gor­geous new photo. 

On Tuesday (and again on Friday), we have the lat­est install­ments of the Michael Tate Chronicles, writ­ten by Chuck Witt. For the unini­ti­at­ed, you can pick up the sto­ry of the fic­tion­al assas­sin from right here in Winchester by start­ing here.

On Wednesday, we try an exper­i­men­tal fea­ture that may or may not be con­tin­ued, depend­ing on read­er reac­tion. We call it “Give and Take,” in which two writ­ers take sides on an issue. The ini­tial piece is authored by Pete Koutoulas and Chuck Witt. Be sure to check it out. 

Ron Kibbey has picked yet anoth­er win­ner! Reel Classics makes its bi-week­ly appear­ance on Thursday, with a review of the clas­sic film noir, Laura.

Friday starts off the way Fridays always do around here, with anoth­er episode of Jeff Brandt’s pop­u­lar music fea­ture, “Jeff’s Playlist,” and con­tin­ues with the afore­men­tioned Michael Tate piece. Also, don’t for­get that our free week­ly newslet­ter drops on Fridays — if you aren’t a sub­scriber, why not sign up now?

On Saturday, we’ll run down the busy sched­ule of events com­ing up in September at Legacy Grove, as well as the some­what-reg­u­lar week­ly opin­ion piece “Five Things.” 

That’s all we have lined up for now, but you nev­er know when we might sneak some­thing else in, so be sure to keep vis­it­ing and fol­low us on Facebook and Twitter. And be sure to check out the morn­ing radio show of 2022 Winchester Citizen of the Year, Tim Smith!
