We're In The Loop

(Get it? Laser Loop: In The Loop.)

We love hearing about all the scoops and goings-ons
in the area.

We get a lot of our info from you the reader, via email.

We also get info from the local paper.

Even this here internet can provide information.
(We thought it was only good for porn and facebooking.)

But now, we are getting all the dirt straight from
the horse's mouth.

That's right, we signed up for the alerts
about New Kensington.

We've been hearing about it for the last week or so, and
just had to see for ourselves what all the fuss is about.

And it turns out, this setup is pretty cool.

When the city feels there is something worth sharing
with the community, they post about it, and this website
sends it right to you...for free.

We opted for the text message alerts, as we have
unlimited texting on our crackberry.

You can also choose email, or straight on the web viewing.

It was quick and easy to sign up.
(Which is good for us, as we are a bit lacking in the
smarts department.)

So far, New Ken has talked about delayed garbage
removal, and even a rash of snow blower thefts.

All of this information at our fingertips, begs for us to
as the question:

Before the did people get their information?

Did they actually talk to each other?
What a horrifying thought.

So if you wanna be as cool as us, sign up at

Or just read our site, as we're sure to tell you all the juicy
gossip we get.

Here is your Newk Weekend Weather Report:

"This is getting ridiculous."
