Christina Landrigan and the Theory of Dependable Goodness

I was six hours removed from the Eastern timezone and nearing the end of a happy trip to visit my sister in Germany on January 6th.

Unable to sleep in anticipation of the flight and feeling refreshed to tackle work back home, I scrolled through Facebook and saw an article about a serious wreck involving a semi-truck that had occurred not far from home in Fort Wayne.

Or as we like to call it: “Elbow Room in the City of Three Rivers.”

For several years we’ve plied our trade in Northeast Indiana, advocated for the community, and marketed the pants off a downtown development concept designed to make the riverfront something just this side of unique, authentic, and magical.

I recently reflected on the journey in this piece for the Journal Gazette.

A Weekend in West Central and the Digital Bolex

The 15th original Digital Bolex finally gets its day in the snow.

Flying Blind

UPDATE: Jim has been getting a lot of press coverage after the video premiered. Links are included below.
