This Week in the News

In news doubly related to GCTV, it was reported in today's Recorder that "Dukes of Sports" co-host Mike Cadran has put together a CD full of newspaper articles chronicling our local Thanksgiving Day high school football rivalry between GHS and Turners Falls.  As many of you know, we alternate filming the game each year with MCTV (Montague Community Television); they film it when it's at TFHS and we take care of it when it's GHS' home game.  After January 1st, folks interested in the history of the longest continuing Turkey day contest can stop by the Greenfield Public Library and ask to use the disc in one of the library's computers.

Also making news, The Recorder will announce its Citizen of Year this coming Tuesday at the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce's Annual Holiday Breakfast.  We'll be there taping the event for later broadcast on Cable Channel 15 and plan to get an interview with the winner.  If you're there, stop by our table and say hi. 

Speaking of things we film for later airing, our staff and volunteers attendend the annual holiday fundraising concert for Greenfield High School's music department on Wednesday night and that will be shown tonight at 7pm.

Finally, as we announced in this blog last Friday, we're now on Twitter.  This week we experimented with Tweeting during the town council meeting as a way to give viewers access to more information.  If you were watching on Wednesday night, and following us, you would have been able to look at the zoning map being referenced, get details for January's precinct meeting, and follow a link to the town clerk's office while those things were being discussed.
