  1. Evanston, my hometown. Evanstonnow articles reconnect me like a long distance call over a cup of coffee with an old neighbor back home. Things change, things don’t change much. Bartling’s articles are thoughtful and respectful. After high school graduation in ‘71, I’ve only returned a few times. Discovered your publication maybe a year ago. With Evanstonnow now I’m home again, even if but in another state and time. Keep up the good work.
