Rufus Woods: World partnering with Seattle civic engagement organization

One of the most important roles this newspaper can play is to foster and support civic engagement throughout North Central Washington. We believe in the value of bringing people together around ideas and possibilities, a philosophy which led us to develop the Community Connections project. Community Connections allows individuals to help build community by writing about topics they are passionate about, such as recovering from addiction, building a culture of conservation, appreciating local food, and transforming classroom education with technology, to name just a few. It has been intriguing to read what these community leaders have produced and the project has definitely resonated with readers who, I presume, are weary of the less-than-civil nature of what passes for public dialogue these days and are eager to connect in more constructive ways.
