Scene – Looking for Prospector input

For several years now, Carol Feineman has written a column called “Backstage” in this spot as part of her job as Prospector writer/editor. Carol is on to a new venture as editor of the Colfax Record, and we have launched a search for her replacement.

In the meantime, this seems like a good opportunity to make some changes to our weekly entertainment section. An excellent newspaper is always a work in progress, and we hope the Prospector section will continue to evolve while remaining the best place to find all things entertainment in Nevada County.

For starters, we want to make the Prospector more interactive with our readers, and that’s where you come in.

We would love to get reader submissions for Prospector. Short reviews ” of videos, movies, books, CDs and games ” would be appreciated. Just jot down a few lines and mail, fax or e-mail to the addresses at the end of this column.

In addition, do you have any family entertainment traditions? Board games? Charades? We want to hear about that, too!

We’re hoping to broaden the definition of entertainment and, in doing so, broaden Prospector’s audience. We probably all agree that music, dance, theater, film and art all constitute entertainment, but is it more than that? Can entertainment be going to a goat show at the Fairgrounds? Can it be sampling the best guacamole in Nevada County? What do you do for entertainment?

One of the great things about The Union is its reader interaction, and we want the Prospector to reflect that. Please take the time to contact me and send your reviews, and suggestions. I’m looking forward to it!

I can be reached at 477-4238 by phone; by e-mail; 477-4292 by fax; or snail mail at 464 Sutton Way, Grass Valley 95945.
