Dear Readers,

Coalitions and collaborations remain much on the minds of Extension professionals these days as Extension more and more works with other agencies and organizations.

This issue of your Journal of Extension contains several articles that speak to various aspects of this topic. You will find articles discussing rural recreation programs in Illinois, changes in coalition members after training, collaborating to revitalize downtowns, a tool to help you assess your collaboration, and a teen driver safety program.

Other topics in this issue include a comparison between California and Australian Extension systems, the use of Internet technology to deliver food safety information, and using video of a Master Farmer to teach other farmers.

But that is only a sampling. Read for yourself the other interesting and information articles.
