COA Local and Global Discussion Group: A Newspaper for Weston? September 14

(no, this is not the newspaper but rather an awesome owl)

So, the Owl has never hidden the fact that this blog is not a real newspaper, these posts are not objective, and I am not a trained journalist. See where it says a “not-quite-the-news site for Weston?” Yes. By the way, if you are getting this by email, please know there is in fact a website behind all of this and you can read past stories at There is also an awesome calendar that I try to update when I remember it, and of course the masthead with a very cool barred owl that the graphic designer made look a little too much like a barn owl but what do you expect when you hire Fivrr?

In any case, that is all to say that I am not hurt by any plans to create a “real” newspaper for Weston and in fact completely applaud it. If you are interested in the topic and maybe want to get involved in the creation of the Weston Times, please come out to the Council on Aging’s Local and Global Discussion Group on September 14. Here’s the information:

Local & Global Discussion Group: A Newspaper for Weston?
Thursday, September 14,
1:15-2:45 at the COA & on Zoom

With the demise of our local newspaper, members of the Weston Media Center’s staff and advisory board, together with a number of concerned residents, have been thinking about how we could better help the community stay connected. We are fortunate to have the Regis College Journalism Department helping Weston to create a strategic plan for a new source of local news.

Weston resident and WMC board member Joel Angiolillo will lead the discussion. This event is open to all who are interested in learning about and discussing the issues in civil discourse. For further information or to obtain a
