Hey everyone, this is Ben Baeder, the publisher, writer and salesman for downeybeat.com.
I haven’t written anything for a while because I got another foster son. I’ve been swamped rearranging my house and doing all the other things associated with the change. He’s a family friend and a wonderful young man, and he really needs a lot of love right now.
With the demands of having another job, a foster son, and my own three children, I can’t keep downeybeat.com going. I’m sad to say that it’s officially dead.
I recently jotted down all the things I need to do during the week, and there’s not enough time to produce decent stories.
I really loved doing the website. If anyone from town wants it, please give me call.
If you’re an advertiser, I’ll be in Downey this week to refund your money.
Downey is a great city. Thanks to everyone who helped me. You all were great.
