“The secret of a good sermon is to have a good beginning and a good ending; and to have the two as close together as possible.”

― George Burns

Hi, folks. Today's word is brevity, so I'll be brief.

As we bundle up for possibly the coldest temps of the year, just a reminder that today's newsletter highlights great stories from the previous week, including News-Journal reporter Patricio Balona and photographer David Tucker hitting the front lines with forest rangers and firefighters as they manage a prescribed burn.

And that fire might feel good come Tuesday morning, as the forecast calls for temps in the upper 30s.

So stay warm and stay informed with The News-Journal.

And thanks for reading!
