May's theme is "Pets" and the main things we are looking for to relate to this theme are:
1) Photos of your pets, especially if you are in the photo with them. Our centrespread is going to be a scrapbook of pet photos, and the more photos we have, the better it is going to be.
2) Pet stories of all kinds: how did you get your pet? memories of a childhood pet? what makes your pet special? tributes to departed pets?
As well, we're going to compile opinions on this topic in sort of a "person on the street" freestyle collection of quotes:
"There is talk about the City making the grassy area along 92 Street near the Stadium a dog park (since it is already unofficially used as one). What do you think?"
Deadline is April 12. Send all contributions to editor @ bmcnews.org.
