New Local Blogs

Nancy Proctor is a busy lady. Its not enough that she has started a weekly newsletter focusing on the activities and needs of the Outer Banks nonprofit community, she is also producing a fascinating blog that targets environmental news and issues with local relevance.
I found the CommonGood E-newsletter when a copy was forwarded to me by the leader of a local group that provides help for families with memory loss (dementia) issues. I immediately subscribed. The newsletter provides information about upcoming events, volunteer opportunities and area nonprofit programs. It offers a wealth of timely and accurate news for the Dare-Currituck area. The CommonGood site has recent newsletters archived and a link to subscribe.
Perhaps more interesting, though no more important, for frequent visitors to this space is Nancy's OBX Common Ground blog. The site focuses on environmental issues that effect our area particulalrly global warming the impact of sea level rise. Nancy provides links to good data and studies as well as current news articles. All material that can't be ignored when public policy about this issues is debated. Wind power, land conservation and green shopping on the OBX have been featured in recent posts. I hope you will stop by, take a look and welcome Nancy to the local blogosphere.
