Hi all- 


Had an interesting 4th. Neighbors and I found a 2-feet rattlesnake in our back yard. Despite not being native here at all, it was coiled and rattling, so I'm pretty sure we were spot on with our identification.


We tried to pin/trap it, but it escaped under our deck. Police said they don't handle snakes (though they said they'll take a shot at it if it's out in the open). Will be trying to call animal control later. If they balk too does anyone have…

Save the Beacon High School Pool and Fitness Center for the citizens of Beacon

We passed a budget to build a new high school and in return the community was promised access to the pool and fitness center ironically… Continue

If you are new to Beacon, you most likely will have no idea what they are or where they came from. If you have been here for awhile, or if you grew up here, you'll recognize this pile of rusting iron to be the bowstring truss…

An Idea Worth Spreading: The Future is Networks

hello fellow beaconites. i wrote this recently after digging very deeply into what the web is really all about and what it empowers us to do. since i moved to beacon, i thought that because of our manageable size and the seeming intentions of a few well meaning individuals, we could make change happen fast and become a national (international?) example of what a resilient city looks like. i have been trying to put into words why and how i think this is possible and important. here is what i… Continue
