Hey Homies

(Is a recovering Chortitzer Mennonite allowed to use a word like "homies"?!)
It makes me feel so gangsta. So baaaaad. Proud, almost.

People of da 'Ville, gather round. Now, I'll humbly confess that I've always felt prickley when people rant about what's happening to their little Bible belt town-- too much change, its getting too big, blahdy blah. I always think that people are being paranoid and afraid of change. But perhaps I spoke too soon? Gather round, ye haters of change-- I need you to channel your latent irritation at change and direct it at rallying against this assault on home daycares. (Not that I'm involved in that calling any more. I've left it all behind me, and I'll be downstairs with some friend's kids, playing "tuk 'n' nare", just minding my own business plus the business of some very small friends who just happen to be over for a play)

Here for your bristling pleasure, is the message which the chamber recently distributed to businesses in Hoo-Ville.

Do you or your employees utilize daycare services in Niverville?

Do you know that every new resident that phones the Chamber Office is asking about the options for daycare and/or commenting on the shortage of daycare spaces?

Please see your April 20th Town Bulletin for information on the proposed changes to zoning bylaws (687-10 and 663-08) that may affect in-home daycares.

A Public Hearing will be held on Tuesday, May 18, 2010 at 7:35 p.m. at the Civic Office, 86 Main Street.
Then please plan to attend said meeting, or else type up a message and send it to

There are still families amongst us who like to leave their precious poppets in a home away from home.
I'd like it to stay that way.
