Community Review - Change is in the air
Placeholder Image
    I noticed it this week. A little less humidity in the air. A yellow leaf riding a gentle breeze to the ground. The light beginning to take on a golden hue. Fall is coming. And, I’m ready for it. I’m ready for a break from the heat, humidity and gnats. I hope we have a long fall with lots of golden days ahead.
    Today is Grandparents’ Day. I wish all our grandparents in the community a wonderful day. If you haven’t called or visited your grandparents lately, take a few minutes and do it today. I was fortunate to live next to one set of grandparents as a child growing up, and I greatly benefited from their companionship. There are not many days that memories of my grandmother don’t pass through my thoughts in some form or another.
    Our new Community page went live last Sunday, and we’ve had a great time this week adding new photos, events and blogs. Truman made a visit to the Statesboro Regional Library on Tuesday to get his dragon-size library card. He had a great time visiting with his friends while he was there. You can see the photos on the photo gallery on the Community page.
    Also, blogger theflyonthewall has some ideas for some upcoming television shows, and so do gawalkman, Deborah Lee and waranne1 — pretty funny. We have some bloggers with some very active funny bones. Go online and see what their suggestions for upcoming television shows involve. Maybe you have some of your own — share them with us.
    As always, our regular contributors always have some thought-provoking information for us. You can see abstracts from their blogs below. Be sure to go online to the Community page to read the complete blogs and comments from community folks. Also, our civic groups have some information online for you to see. The American Red Cross has information about upcoming classes on the blogs.
    Are you a member of a civic group, a cheer parent, a sports parent or someone with a special interest to share? Go online and share your news and information with us—the community. You can post meeting information, updates on competitions or games or share the news from your neck of the woods. We — the community — want to read about it. We want to see your photos. We want to know about your upcoming events. Post it all online.
    See you online, where there’s never a word count and never a page limit.
