Envy is not necessarily bad
Glancing at my Webster's, item 1, provided this definition: "a feeling of discontent and ill will because of another's advantages, possessions...."
I envy Art In The Park, our cover story for this issue, but I certainly have no feelings of discontent -- quite the contrary. I envy Art in the Park, because I would like to have more of our town's events as well attended. I would like to see the Art Guild's show become as successful, likewise the Chamber of Commerce Spring Jamboree, our Christmas Parade, and many other events occurring throughout the year.
When our parks, stages, and other venues are active, so are our restaurants, stores, services, and golf courses - that's what helps B C.
We are trying a different approach this year highlighting Art In The Park. Normally we highlight the gala event in the park with the focus on the park, the people in the event, and the art displays. This year, we talked with the people behind the event and discussed the results the big show produces.
