On Sunday, The Bee will print its first installment of an occasional series on Sacramento's prospects for an economic recovery from what is being called The Great Recession.
The series, called Road to Recovery, is novel in that The Bee is partnering with Capital Public Radio to produce it. The Bee will publish stories and photographs on the regional economy while CPR will air radio reports on how individuals are faring and job growth. For more information about the partnership, read Bee Editor Melanie Sill's recent column.
But, the partnership doesn't have to be limited to The Bee and CPR. It can include you.
On our Road to Recovery page, you can find a public blog where we invite you to share your story of how the recession has affected your life and how you've coped.
You can get to the blog directly here.
Bee Business editor Mary Lynne Vellinga, who is steering the project at The Bee, has authored the first posting, describing how her family responded when the recession claimed her husband's job.
Unlike reader comments that are posted instantaneously to stories on sacbee.com, submissions to this blog will appear only after they've been reviewed by Bee staffers.
We are hoping the public blog will add a third dimension to the series. With your help, it can become the common place where Sacramento-area residents go to share their stories of The Great Recession.
