Rain throughout the week made a negative impact on the 48th Annual Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair, beginning with a rained-out parade on Monday and ending with a soggy Saturday. This means there will be less money to send back into the community through donations in the upcoming year, said Statesboro Kiwanis Club President Barbara Price.
Homecoming week starts Monday at Statesboro High. It's a week filled with traditions first organized in the 1940's. Over the years many ideas and activities have come and gone, including bonfires, city parades and formal dances. One tradition that remains is dress up days at the school.
Last weekend, during the 28th Annual Coastal Empire Classic Marching Band Competition, 15 bands from as far away as Jacksonville and Orlando met at Effingham County High School's Rebel Field to do battle.

Before visitors to the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair can get to the midway, they pass by a part of the fairgrounds that represent the fair's origin and theme. It's not just about rides and cotton candy; the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair is an agricultural fair that celebrates and preserves the rich heritage of the region's agricultural industry.
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."
