Editor’s Notebook: 1/12/12

• My flow of front page news typically slows down during this week every year as the threat of our Progress deadline looms for the reporting staff (5 p.m. Friday, in case you’re reading this, kids). But today, an accident and a fire took over the front page. Who says nothing ever happens around here?

• Check out more of Brian Golden’s awesome photos of that medical rescue helicopter on our Facebook page today.

• Speaking of Facebook, I got word today of a community page set up to benefit Kurt Beyer Pool, whose closure has been such a hot topic of late. Visit the page here. And stay tuned … I know that at least one local charitable foundation has stepped up to the plate (or the diving board) to help the cause. We’ll have a story on that soon, too.
