Hi, I now live in NYC (since 1988) - but still visit the 'old home town' Bielefeld (although I lived mostly in Berlin) and love to check on local papers (love local papers in general) Bielefeld, Germany - the paper is The New Westfalian (there's another, conservative... 'we' don't touch that one...) - thinking of moving back...
- Local headlines:-East Westfalian towns among the safest in North-Rhine Westfalia-Eldercare personnell urgently needed-Soccer (always soccer...)-Local students making animated film w/ gummibears
- World News:-Bomb in Sydney, Australia-Parts of shuttle 'Columbia' discovered-Germany has the least children in EU-Mubarack appears in court (w/ same pic as on NPR site...)-Laws to attract doctors to rural Germany-Hitchcock film discovered
... oh, and the side ad is from Groupon..., SO interesting to see the priorities in different communities... Greetings from the East Village,Ulla
