Where have all the people gone

Lisa extends best wishes to Michaela Garstin and comments on the statement "nothing to do in Princeton."

Wow, has this been one busy and exciting little community over the past couple of weeks!

First of all, I’d like to congratulate our most recently past editor, Michaela Garstin on her new position with the North Shore Outlook. Although the move is best for Michaela, given that is where her family and friends are, we here at the Spotlight will certainly miss her. Their gain is most definitely our loss.

The Spotlight like many of the smaller newspapers provides an excellent training base for reporters and editors who are interested in acquiring the strengths and experience necessary for their media professions. I for one can attest to that, due to the fact that during my nine year tenure here I have met and enjoyed working with a great many of them.

I have lived in Princeton for the majority of my life. I grew up here and attended many of the events held here as a child as well as into my adulthood. The one thing that I have never been able to understand is those individuals who complain that there is nothing to do in Princeton…WHAT???

Excuse me for saying so, but are you kidding me? There is so much to do in this area that I honestly can not comprehend how someone could even say those words. The weekends have been packed with events… and out of 5,000 or so people—where are you?

Check out the papers, posters, radio, Leisure Guide, Tourist Guide or just ask someone for that matter. Most of the events are at no cost and if there is a charge, it is minimal and benefits the entire community.

Nothing to do in Princeton—come on, seriously!
