Community Review
New Community voices share news

    This week, I have the great pleasure of introducing our new Community Contributors. These are members of our community and our neighbors who are interested in sharing thoughts and ideas on various topics and will be regularly contributing blogs on BlogSpace. Their work may also appear in print.
    Meet Elizabeth Nessmith. You may remember Elizabeth from our Valentine’s Day Blog Contest earlier this year. She won movie passes to Carmike Cinemas, dessert at Daily Grind and roses from Southern Creations Floral and Gift Shoppe. The mother of two young children, Elizabeth is very concerned with parenting issues.
    If you’re familiar with our blogs, you may have read some previous posts by Theresa Welford. Theresa is a professor at Georgia Southern University and is very concerned with helping her neighbors here or abroad—human or animal. She will be contributing blogs about a variety of topics, including the Humane Society and pet issues.
    Tom Caiazzo is new to our site. He is a political science professor at the East Georgia College satellite here in Statesboro. Prior to moving to Statesboro, Tom taught at colleges in Plano, Texas, and Panama City, Fla. Tom is married to Janet, and they have a young son named Dante. Tom will be contributing blogs with a political bent. By the way, you can now link directly to Senate Notes from the Community Page.
    We invite you to go to the Community Page at to read their posts. If you enjoyed reading their posts, please let them know by posting a comment. Remember, you must be logged in to comment. Likewise, you can disagree with their posts, but please read our guidelines at the top of the BlogSpace. We will not edit your comments, but we will remove any that do not fit the posted guidelines.
    We are interested in hearing from more of our friends and neighbors in the community. Do you have a particular interest or expertise in a certain area that you would like to share with us? What about recreation department sports? Fishing? Arts? Read a good book lately? Seen a good (or bad) movie? Tell us about it (just don’t tell us how it ends—I hate that). Blog with us!
    We want to hear from you! If you would like to be a Community Contributor, please e-mail me at
Dining Guide

    “What do you want to eat? I don’t know. What do you want to eat?” Does this conversation sound familiar? Don’t hesitate. Go to Where to Eat on the Statesboro Herald Web site. Look at the mouthwatering pictures, read the menus and then make tracks to the restaurant of your choice. Do you see a restaurant with no pictures or menu? Tell them you want to see their stuff on the dining guide at www.statesboroherald.
