It was announced at the November 2013 General Membership Meeting that from this point forward, due to the hot button nature of the “Botanic Garden versus Gus Wortham Park Golf Course,” there will be no more independent articles or editorials in either the Idylwood Newsletter or on the Idylwood web site. This is to keep divisiveness to a minimum.
The Board did clarify for everyone present that this does not mean that there will be no more news about either the proposed botanic garden or Gus Wortham Park Golf Course. If there is some newsworthy item, such as an edict from City Council or if voting on the issue is scheduled, this will be reported to the residents in both the newsletter and the web site. It’s just that there will be no more editorializing by either the board of the residents.
Anyone unclear on this can contact any officer or director of the Idylwood Civic Club, the Newsletter Editor (Wendy Thiessen) or the web master (Joni Mueller).
