Editor’s Notebook: 3/11/11

• First snow, then floods … I anxiously await the plague of locusts and river of blood this weekend.

• All kidding aside, we’ve got it easy compared to our friends in Japan – and the extended reach of the tsunami. Our thoughts and prayers going out to them, for sure. You can’t tell me we haven’t done something to throw this planet off balance … but now’s not the time for environmental lectures.

• Oh wait, actually it is. If the road ahead of you is submerged in water … don’t try to cross it! Seems like common sense, but some people in Sherburne learned that lesson the hard way this morning. Check out Brian Golden’s video on our Facebook page. Love the shot of the young lady with the toddler wading through the water to get to the grocery store. Insert presumptuous comment here.

• Headed to the Chenango County Council of the Arts tonight to see the alt/country band The John Henrys. Looks like a good show. I hear it on good authority that tickets are still available. Curtain’s at 7; get there early and get a good seat.

• Pat Newell keeps close tabs on Chenango County high school wrestling throughout the season, of course, and today he’s revealed his picks for the 2011 Evening Sun Wrestling All-Stars. Read the story here.
