In the last few weeks, we've been busy working the Web in search of friends for our MySpace.com page for The Item.The response has been tremendous and every day we're adding new faces and places to the list of friends. In just a few short weeks, The Item's added more than 500 friends!

It's not just for kids, either. Friends range in age from 16 to 60. You'll find links to all The Item stories for the week, plus links to new blog posts at ItemMeister.

In the future we hope our MySpace page will reach a younger readership and get people interested in their local paper. Also, it is a place for us and our new friends to share information, story ideas and other media.
