As you may have heard, I have sort of jumped ship from the Partisan to the new journalistic operation in town, Voices of Monterey Bay. My first piece for VOMB is in today’s edition, and you can find it right here.
It’s about the proliferation of mountain bike trails in Toro Park without formal county approval and virtually no oversight by county officials who are supposed to be in charge of the public park. It’s about Monterey County government’s failure to do its job and about Supervisor Mary Adams plan to fix things.
Obviously the Partisan isn’t actually dead yet. It was a labor of love and it’s difficult to say goodbye. So, it still floats around in cyberspace in case it needs to be called into action from time to time. But Voices is more like the real deal, involving significantly more attention and effort than one cranky old journalist could ever provide. Check it out and support it. It, too, is a labor of love, a public service, an earnest effort to fill some of the widening gaps in local journalism.
