Ulla (Ursula) Zwicker from New York City

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

In addition to the Versailles atrocity in Ohio, there is another town in Ohio called "Bellefontaine" but is pronounced "Bell-Fountain." Made me wince every time.
