NASH: Reaching a milestone

(Continued)

I have also taken to task several members of my party when it comes to how we are represented in New Albany and Floyd County. Anyone who has read my column with any consistency knows of my disdain for many members of the city and county councils. Some of them have moved on to other things over the last couple of years and I think we are heading in the right direction now.

Some of the more positive comments I get are when I write columns about a personal nature.  People seem to love it when I talk about myself and my life. I try not to make the column about me too often because I am worried that some readers would get bored. Over the next year or so there will be a few more personal columns as I enter my second year of marriage to the love of my life [giggle giggle giggle].

My daytime job is in retail so Christmas season is rough for me with family commitments and work obligations. Over the last few years I have written a little fiction story that is published on the Friday preceding the Christmas holiday. These columns have also been popular over the years especially the column, “A Stranger comes to Town” from 2010. It tells the story of a man who comes back to New Albany after several years away and he realizes the renaissance of our downtown. Many people reported that they loved that story.

Over the years I have had a few projects that I have wanted to see happen in New Albany and Southern Indiana. Calling for a new pool in Floyd County was one of the first columns I wrote, even before I had a permanent writing position. Now after several years, it looks like it could come to fruition. I would also like to see I comprehensive bicycle plan that would encompass Floyd and Clark counties. It could easily tie into the hundreds of miles of bicycle paths of Louisville. The Ohio River Greenway project could tie it all together over the next several years as the work there is completed.
