It’s May In Trumansburg
What a glorious day it was, nearly 60 degrees and bright sun, with that ice melting right off the slick sidewalks. I saw real green grass around town today. It felt like May…
… and in some places, it was.
When I started this Finding Ulysses blog years ago, I thought that I might write on it a bit more than I actually have. Things have happened – two additional children especially – that have gotten in the way of that vision. I’d like to write more, and at more length, here than I do, and every now and then I feel bad when I see the site not so frequently updated.
I’m not feeling that way so much this evening, though, as I look on over at the official web site from the Trumansburg village government. The latest item in the news there is from May of last year, talking about the annual water quality report – the report that will be coming again just three months from now.
Could we arrange for the Village Board of Trustees to start a Twitter feed, perhaps? A quick Twitter search tonight does reveal that Trumansburg resident Don Ellis is a recent winner of an iPad from WSKG. What else of that sort could be shared by our local government?
“…looking for a farm driver to deliver our CSA shares from Trumansburg to NYC every Thursday starting March 10th. No special driver license needed, but a clean driving record is needed….. Please have anyone who may be interested get in touch:)”
It’s great to see anyone can offer any sort of job these days, even if it’s just one day a week. Also, I strongly respect the Piggery’s local food efforts here and at the Ithaca Farmers Market. Still – if the food travels 4 to 5 hours by road to get to its destination, how does this part of the business qualify as community supported agriculture?
Let’s get together, Trumansburg, and commit to eating more of our share of local pork – so they have less to send to Manhattan.
