Another week of summer has slid by, and we’re rapidly approaching back-to-school season, so get out there to soak up some weekend summer fun while you still can. But first, we’d like to send out a great big thank-you to everyone who dropped by this week to add encouragement, support and, yes, criticism, too. And thanks for helping to spread the word about

Of course, we couldn’t possibly cover the wide, wonderful scope of offerings around town without a dedicated and devoted bunch of wonderful writers, photographers, artists, tipsters and other assorted enablers who continually enrich us all with their contributions. So a big salute goes out to this week’s community contributors:

Janet Kwiatkowski
Larry Murray
Kirsten Ferguson
