Re: Associated Press content in local Fort Collins newspaper without mentioning Grey Rock Commons?

Evidently the newspaper staff have been reading their comments, because there's now an added phrase in the Coloradoan's article referring to Grey Rock and River Rock, in the 2nd paragraph.

"THE PATH TO SHARED LIVING; Cohousing can be an appealing option for
boomers and seniors"

What the newspaper did was to run the Associated Press news feed
previously discussed here - and publish it as is. There is a very
well-established cohousing community, Grey Rock Commons, located in
Fort Collins. Unfortunately, they receive nary a mention. This must be
even more frustrating to the owner of the cohousing homes that is for
sale or rent:

In previous posts, I made a couple of suggestions: (1) that groups
explore how they can use the AP story that was BROADLY republished to
get some local coverage that better meets their needs and (2) that we
add comments to the press coverage cohousing receives to help people
reading the article online get more value.

Its too late for Grey Rock to take advantage #1... won't you help them
out with #2?

Note: A link to this article, like many other cohousing news items,
appears on the Cohousing Now! webpage:
