This website was begun in 2012 by residents of Tropicana who wanted to offer their neighbors a place where they can discuss issues, ask questions and exchange ideas. After a false start back then, we are now open again for another try. We will be active while we are here, in season. After that the archive will be left open for anyone to browse.
The blog is free and no one has to join. It is a public service in Tropicana. There is no advertising. You can contact us at Blogfinger@verizon.net. You may start a conversation or just comment on an existing post. You can send a letter to the editor.
To comment on an existing post, just click the “comment” button at the bottom of any post or send us an email. Blogfinger@verizon.net. All commenters must give us their name. Please be brief.
Unlike Facebook, this site is edited, so nothing unworthy is allowed.
