Editor’s Notebook: 3/23/12

• And we come to the end of another long, crazy week. At least the weather was nice — freakishly so. I’m not one to bite the hand that feeds me, but I can’t help thinking we’re going to pay for all this 70-80 degree weather with one mother of a snowstorm after Easter. Or a zombie apocalypse on 12-12-12, take your pick.
• My alma mater, Oxford Academy, has chosen a new school superintendent, Dr. David Richards. Ooh, a doctor! Little old Oxford is stepping up in the world! I’ve seen many a superintendent come and go, of course, but in my mind it’ll always be Mr. Burroughs at the helm of the red & black. Look at me waxing nostalgic about the good old days … of high school?!?
• I’ll be attending my first “Fashion Night Out” at the Benedict Corporation Saturday night. It’s an annual fashion show fundraiser for the Phoenix Dance Project, which features dancers from our own Perkins School of the Arts. I look forward to Amber’s recitals every spring and saw a Phoenix performance at the Palace Theater in Hamilton last fall that was phenomenal, so it’ll be interesting to see how they stage this whole fashion show concept thing. I hear it’s a good time.
• Pat Newell’s first of a seven-part series on the latest class of inductees for the Norwich Sports Hall of Fame appears in today’s edition, profiling John Stewart of the Class of ‘54. Check it out here.
