Who Is Smitty?
I had no idea of where this would go when I began Smitty's Notesfor a small circle of friends in 1997. In a relatively few shorts years, reading Smitty's Notes monthly e-newsletter and going to SmittysNotes.com have become the norm for people looking to find out what's going on in the Winston-Salem area.
Readers also look to Smitty's Notes for coverage of breaking news, particularly news associated with major local events, business developments and downtown stories. After publishing Smitty's Notes for more than a fifteen years, I admit that I still like to beat the mainstream media on occasion by breaking the big story inSmitty's Notes.
People in Winston-Salem are probably the most informed they have ever been about community events. I continue to be amazed by how far we have come in fifteen years with Internet technology, a social networking Web site and a community newsletter like Smitty's Notes.
