A Note 

It’s been a rough week of news. It breaks my heart to see our country so divided. I’m not going to provide a political commentary right here. I am tired of reading news and hearing politics non-stop, so much so that I deleted Twitter from my phone to give myself some breathing room.

If you’re in the Cultural Resources world, there are two big events you should mark on your calendar:

  • The National Trust for Historic Preservation Conference is this week in Houston, TX. I’m not attending this year, but I plan to attend virtually when I can (or catch the replays). Find the info here. And if you are in Houston, have a great time. I look forward to hearing your recap!

  • The CRM Industry In the Age of Trump – this is a free webinar on 11/28/16 (2:00-3:00pm EST) hosted by the American Cultural Resources Association “ACRA”, and all of us should attend. We don’t know exactly what the next four years will bring, but we may need to up our advocacy and outreach efforts to Congress to preserve our laws and regulations, which govern much of our professional work.

And with that, please suggest something non-political for us to read or hear. It would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    I too was upset by the election because it seems that the dam that kept people from really being nasty has broken. I have doubled my effort in my volunteer work. I stock our tiny food pantry 4 times a week. Helping others to have food makes me feel better. I have gone to our local Dollar General and they set up a donation bin that includes pet food. If a family suffers from food insecurity it is also hard to feed there pets. I think that if we all go out and do something good for another person, and everyone in the country did this, many ills and rifts will be healed. You cannot feel prejudiced against someone you help. Go for it folks.
