I'll be in Rochester this evening to participate in the 13WHAM news department's town hall discussion on Common Core, the national education initiative focusing on state-by-state standards to "prepare America's children for college & career."

The event will be broadcast live from The Strong National Museum of Play in Downtown Rochester and available streaming on the station's mobile app and at 13WHAM.com.

The Batavian is an official news partner of 13WHAM, and like the other partners, will be asking questions and posting on Twitter about the discussion. You can follow my tweets at @howardowens.

The event starts at 7 p.m.

We're about to order our first batch of The Batavian T-shirts from T-Shirts Etc. I expect to visit Brian tomorrow and place the order.

We're only ordering as many as were purchased, so if you want to get one in this batch, order now.

The T-shirts are $20 each, which I realize is a bit pricey for a T-shirt, but we're putting half the money into our equipment fund so we can improve the quality of the equipment we use to bring you the news. This money won't be used for anything except buying equipment (the site is doing well enough at this point that we're making a living).

Thank you for your support.
