On Thursday's "Morning's unPHILtered," host Phil Boyum covered what's going on in the Boro this weekend and next week. He reminded listeners about next Tuesday's live 7:30 p.m. campaign debate/forum for Statesboro city council candidates to be held in the Emma Kelly Theater at the Averitt Center. He encouraged everyone to show up, so they can ask questions of the candidates running for the two contested city council seats.
In spite of rainy weather that nixed the fair parade Monday and dampened the fairgrounds Wednesday, record attendance Tuesday, paired with hopefully decent weather the rest of the week, could help recoup any losses, said Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair Chairman Darrell Colson.
The Fine Arts team of Coach Bob Jennings, Art teacher Carlee Fuller, and Music teacher Sydna Williams at Sallie Zetterower Elementary School come from very different backgrounds, but are of the same mind: "If you can't motivate the children, then you shouldn't be in the classroom."
