Do You Miss the Lightening Up Column?

Jeanne Leffingwell is a local artist and teacher whose column, “Lightening Up” has appeared in a dozen past issues of the Co-op's Community News. Her volunteer column was discontinued with this issue.
She recently shared with us, “I’m a little worried that I’ll lose momentum with the ‘Saga of My Stuff’ and how I’m getting rid of it, without those deadlines.” She’d like to encourage anyone interested to send her an email with the subject line: More Lightening Up. If I get even 6 or 8 people who want to hear about this, I’ll keep reporting from the field... or maybe put it on a blog. Thanks!” Her email:

Comments, Complaints and Compliments December 2010

By Kenna S. Eaton GM

The new tables are so much nicer! Anonymous

Thanks- we like ‘em too- but they aren’t actually new. As the previous decoupage of Co-op newspaper cuttings was wearing thin, we decided to recover them with bamboo from Natural Abode. - Kenna

Another scale in the front of the produce area would be helpful- Peter A

I contacted Peter and asked or more information regarding the scale. Here’s his response “The scale currently there seems fine as it is, but I had the hardest time finding it when I was at the front of the produce section, by the tomatoes. I would think about placing one right there-maybe a manual tabletop model. This seems to be an issue wherever I shop-not enough scales, or they're too hard to find.  Thanks for listening."

Pete- thanks for your comment and suggestion. The scale did use to live above the bananas, nearer the front of the store- we decided to move it back to its current location to see if it worked better for our customers. We’ll consider moving it back to its previous location next time we re-arrange tables in there.-Kenna
