Long time no post. Have been fairly busy this week with tests and assignments and all that good stuff. Managed to get my 2 original stories done in one day (which was my hope, but not what I expected.)
First off, Record Store Day is coming up this Saturday (April 20th) and many record stores in London are doing stuff to mark the day. I spoke to Blair Whatmore of Grooves Records in Downtown London to see what Grooves is doing for Record Store Day.
Second, a piece about the new London smoking bylaw that is going into effect starting May 1st. It prohibits smoking within 9 metres of park recreational areas, and the entrances to municipal buildings. I spoke to Linda Stobo, Program Manager for Chronic Disease Prevention and Tobacco Control at the Middlesex-London Health Unit *whew*, to find out why the bylaw was created and how it will affect children. NOTE: I did a streeter back in October about this very issue, back when it was still being kicked around in City Council.
That’s all for now! SCHOOLS DONE IN LESS THAN A WEEK.
I CAN’T WAIT.
