Community Review by Pat Homer
Topics of conversation diverse

    Each week, I am amazed at the amount of material that appears on our Web site. I enjoy seeing your pictures on the Photo Gallery, learning about your upcoming events on the Community Calendar and reading your blogs.
    If you haven’t joined us on the Web site yet, what are you waiting for? Don’t miss the fun! The Web site offers so much information about our community. You can see your neighbors’ vacation pictures, local football camp pictures, local church event pictures, and so much more.
    The BlogSpace offers plenty of local information. Our Community Contributors post items dealing with their areas of expertise. What you see in today’s paper is just the tip of the iceberg compared to what’s online. In addition to our Community Contributors, you can read the everyday musings of your friends and neighbors.
    Since I wrote my last column, user Ric Stewart, a young man from Lyons, gave us some information on using correct grammar. I hope he continues to give us a grammar tip on a regular basis. We can all use it.
    Luke Martin shared his thoughts on his 10-year class reunion. User mbmr asked why butterflies and fireflies seem to be scarce, and Deborah Lee provided us with a Web site to explain why. Araina and her family had an experience of the reptilian kind at the lake, and user gawalkman told us about last night’s blue moon. By the way, did anyone have anything interesting happen during last night’s blue moon? Blog us about it!
    User theflyonthewall has really kept us buzzing (pun intended) with his or her satirical commentary. The fly has shared a wide array of thoughts from having a presidential beauty contest instead of an election (the fly says Hillary won’t win) to a Guide to Banning Books for Dummies to choosing the location for President Bush’s presidential library (some of his choices include a FEMA trailer in Louisiana, Mexico City and Beijing). See what fun you’re missing if you’re not on the Web? Go online and add your two-cents-worth.
    Have a medical question? Maybe it’s something you’re just curious about—like how much does hair grow in a month’s time. Ask the Answer Doc, Dr. Chris Munger. He is online on Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 12 noon. If you missed the time—no problem—just post a question and he will answer it later
    Have a business question? Jan Moore, our Bulloch Biz Insider, will be happy to answer your question. Jan is online on Mondays from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. You can leave questions at any time for Jan, as well.
    Plus this fall, if you’re a football fan, you’re going to want to be on the Web site. Football season is just around the corner, and we have some great fun planned for you. I’ll tell you more about that later.
Dining Guide
    We have two additions to the Dining Guide this week—Dairy Queen and Seasons of Japan, formerly Kyoto’s.
    Dairy Queen offers some of the best brazier-style food around, plus THE best soft-serve ice cream. Who can turn down an icy cold Blizzard on a hot day? Go online and see what they have there for you to see.
    Seasons of Japan, formerly Kyoto’s, offers the finest in Japanese cuisine. It’s fast and affordable, and you can get your sushi made just like you like it. Plus, they are adding some new menu items for your dining pleasure. They’re on the Web at Click “Where to Eat.” 
    Have a great week, and I want to see YOU on the Web!
