Building community Community has always been an important part of the Cass County Communication Network. There’s a pink sticky note on my computer that reads “Promote things that impact community in positive ways or inspire people to instigate positive MICHELLE LAIRD change.” Some might argue that I’m EDITOR/PUBLISHER spilling my secrets writing that, but when we were developing the Cass County Communication Network, I referred to that pink note daily to keep my focus. A few weeks ago, we watched that mantra take shape. Someone posted a Facebook® status update about two dogs that had been found. I reposted it to our fans on our Cass County Calendar page on Facebook. About 24 hours later, my husband saw a post on one of his friend’s walls about two missing dogs. He was able to call both the person missing the dogs and the person who’d posted that they found the dogs, and a few hours later, the dogs had been reunited with their owners. It was a huge testament to the power of the community that our Facebook fans have built, and it’s the little things like that that keep us excited about doing what we do every day. It’s been incredible to watch our visions take shape. Every day, we check our Facebook page, analyze our ZHEWUDIÀFDQGUHDOL]HWKDWSHRSOHWUXO\FDUHDERXW our community and what happens in it. :H·YHSRVWHGVRPHURXJKVWRULHVLQRXUÀUVWPRQWK — the state announced plans to lay off 355 people at the State Hospital shortly after we launched, and last weekend we found ourselves letting people know that two teenagers had been stabbed near a local restaurant. But what makes it easier to write those stories is seeing how much people care. Throughout my career as a journalist, I’ve adopted DWUDGLWLRQRIHQYLVLRQLQJDWOHDVWRQHVSHFLÀFUHDGHU for every story I write. It truly amazes me that when
we post a story, our readers can interact with us and let us know what they’re thinking. It makes doing what we do a lot of fun, and it makes covering the bad stuff a little easier to know that our readers are on board with us, doing their own bit to instigate positive change in our community. I think I probably glance at my pink sticky note 100 times per day. But our readers are the ones that make it happen, and for that, we can’t thank you enough. Summer’s coming to an end — in the midst of launching our new endeavor, I kind of feel like I missed it. But now we’re on to one of my favorite times of year — late summer and early fall in Cass County are beautiful and busy times. We look forward to sharing them with you!

Each old refrigerator or freezer requires an DYHUDJHRIWRNLORZDWWKRXUVN:K WR operate annually. If a spare refrigerator used in a basement or garage is removed and not replaced, energy savings can amount to 1,200 kWh per year, with an average reduction of $100 or more in annual electricity charges. â€œMany customers are astounded when they learn how much more energy it requires to keep food and beverages cold in those secondary refrigerators and freezers normally stored LQWKHJDUDJHRUEDVHPHQWÂľVDLG*X\$XVPXV senior vice president of customer engagement for NIPSCO. â€œBesides helping save energy and money, this program ensures that all units are safely dismantled and recycled in an environmentally responsible way.â€?

Excuses, excuses. If youâ€™re like the Cass County Communication Network team, youâ€™re probably getting the post-summer blues. You know the ones weâ€™re talking about â€” there are only a few short weeks left to Logansportâ€™s drive-in season. Luckily, youâ€™ve got plenty of excuses to indulge in your favorite local treats. September 10 is National Hot Dog Day. September 18 is National Cheeseburger Day. Thereâ€™s also National Chocolate Milkshake Day on September 12, and National Ice Cream Day on September 22. And if youâ€™re like us, and you just canâ€™t decide on a favorite, you can always start celebrating with I Love Food Day on September 9.
