lt sharronWell, if it means better readership then I think it's a good idea. As long as it doesn’t become so big that it loses its community feeling.

lt brookeIt's not very surprising given that most of journalism is in a shrinking state on a fast decline. I think that if people are willing to pay for content, that’s where the better journalism is going to happen anyways.

I don't think merger is quite the correct word for this, I believe it is more of an acquisition(take over). I've never cared for the SCWeekly paper, so this disappoints me. I'm sure some think this is a good thing however I am sure it's not for all that are employed by the GOODTIMES, if I am correct most if not all will be fired and replaced by SC Weekly employees and the paper will be SC Weekly with the cover of the GOODTIMES. Only time will tell. And all of locals will see.
There'll be less free reading matter in the cafes, but I hope for a superior product

I'll miss getting separate local weeklies on both Wednesday and Thursday, but I'm hoping that the merged product will be superior to them both.

Heart Me Up

In defense of Valentine’s Day

 

“be(ing) of love (a little) more careful”—e.e. cummings

Wednesday (Feb. 10) is Ash Wednesday, when Lent begins. Friday (Feb. 12) is Lincoln’s 207th birthday. Sunday is Valentine’s Day. On Ash Wednesday, with foreheads marked with a cross of ashes, we hear the words, “From dust thou art and unto dust thou shalt return.” Reminding us that our bodies, made of matter, will remain here on Earth when we are called back. It is our Soul that will take us home again. Lent offers us 40 days and nights of purification in preparation for the Resurrection (Easter) festival (an initiation) and for the Three Spring Festivals (at the time of the full moon)—Aries, Taurus, Gemini. The New Group of World Servers have been preparing since Winter Solstice. The number 40 is significant. The Christ (Pisces World Teacher) was in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights prior to His three-year ministry. The purpose of this desert exile was to prepare his Archangel (light) body to withstand the pressures of the Earth plane (form and matter). We, too, in our intentional purifications and prayers during the 40 days of Lent, prepare ourselves (physical body, emotions, lower mind) to receive and be able to withstand the irradiation of will, love/wisdom and light streaming into the Earth at spring equinox, Easter, and the Three Spiritual Festivals. What is Lent? The Anglo-Saxon word, lencten, comes from an ancient spring festival, agricultural rites marking the transition between winter and summer. The seasons reflect changes in nature (physical world) and humanity responds with social festivals of gratitude and of renewal. There is a purification process, prayerfulness in nature and in humanity in preparation for a great flow of spiritual energies during springtime. Valentine’s Day: Aquarius Sun, Taurus moon. Let us offer gifts of comfort, ease, harmony, beauty and satisfaction. Things chocolate and golden. Venus and Taurus things.
