Happy New Year to Our Readers!

January 1, 2010

As we look forward to 2010, we will be adding some features to The Erie Wire to help us deliver on regionally-focused information and develop networking opportunities for a progressive online community. Also, if you haven’t already heard, you can expect to see The Erie Wire unveil a new website under the domain “” very soon. This website will offer stronger features, improved functionality, the latest in online tools and software, HD compatibility, and a friendly interface.

Local Government Updates

At any level of government, effective leadership of a diverse population goes beyond the promises of elected officials. Expect more coverage on how municipal, county and regional state departments are using taxpayer dollars to meet your expectations as a citizen of the great lakes basin upon the launching of our new website.

Sandusky Social Networking

Do you use Facebook, Myspace and other social networking sites to keep your contacts updated? The launching of locally-oriented allows community organizations, local businesses, active citizens and property owners to create and customize profiles, post and upload pictures, video and information updates FREE. Connect with your neighbors and network with those who are passionate about Sandusky and its inherent resilience as a Great Lakes community. (This website is provided by The Erie Wire and its existence depends solely on the willingness of the community to find it useful. If and when the community decides to use, we will ensure its ability to operate for FREE in perpetuity.)

Great Lakes Regional Trends

The Great Lakes remains the largest living freshwater system on the planet, and supports the vitality of both the public and private sectors immediately surrounding it. As resource shortages become more apparent around the globe, protection and preservation of this important ecosystem is a top priority for coastal communities, national and international. Environmentally-conscious efforts are being made on behalf of the region by bordering states and provinces as the green industry is opening up endless opportunities for innovation to provide answers to the energy crisis. The Erie Wire has spent the greater parts of 2009 developing relationships among the efforts surrounding sustainability and the green industry, you can expect to read and watch coverage about these efforts and see the story unfold, right here at The Erie Wire.

Thank you for your support throughout our first year!
