When Davidsonnews.net shut down nearly 2 years ago, it was a blow to the community.
We say that in all sincerity even though the positions on issues here at aShortChronicle were often at odds with how that site often presented them.
Soon after DNN ceased publication, there was brief mention locally of an effort to revive something similar to take its place - possibly as a nonprofit. However, nothing ever came of it.
Recently, we heard some swirl about the possibility of the idea resurfacing for another information outlet - an interesting thing to hear - in an election year. With so much going on around town, it will be interesting to see if any new source of info takes the same critical eye of Town Hall's actions or will it instead become its unofficial mouthpiece.
Regardless, we say the more the merrier when it comes to getting information about the news of Davidson out to the public. That's always a good thing.
