Having a little bit of writer’s block this week on what to blog about… I usually try to take some inspiration from the programs or events happening around town, and then it hit me: We had a LOT going on at WCTV this week and the programs are a representation of all the different ways…

Volunteers donated their morning to help pick up trash (and whatever else they found) around the community. Public spaces, included Silver Lake, got a lot of…
