    We’ve had some interesting community conversation this week. We’ve discussed summer memories, country roads, fishing, abandoned puppies, moving the three-point line in basketball and Hillary for president. Tom, we’re waiting to hear more about Hillary.
    If you missed out on these conversations, log onto the Statesboro Herald Web site and click on “Community.” That’s where you’ll find the Photo Gallery, the Community Calendar and Blogspace. See what your neighbors are talking about. Put your two cents’ worth in while you’re there—post a comment.
    Our Community Contributors—Elizabeth Nessmith, Theresa M. Welford and Tom Caiazzo—have put their two cents’ worth in this week. Here you see a portion of their posts on Blogspace. Go online to read the rest.
    We welcome Stephanie Dittmer to Blogspace as a regular Community Contributor. Stephanie is the Development Consultant at the Averitt Center for the Arts here in Statesboro. We look forward to hearing about the arts from Stephanie.
    We’re looking for more Community Contributors. All you have to do is post a blog a couple of times per week. So, if you have a hobby, tips or helpful hints or an area of expertise, share them with us—your friends and neighbors. If you can send an e-mail, you can post a blog.
    Also, all you sports moms and dads out there. Blogspace is the perfect place to let the community know how the team is doing. You can attach a picture to the blog, so we can see the team in action. All those great athletes start somewhere. Wouldn’t it be great to watch these athletes grow and improve over the years? Plus, you never know when stories will get pulled from the Web into print. If the story’s not there, we can’t print it.
    Our community is filled with wonderful stories that need to be told. Who can tell your story better than you? We want to hear about Aunt Minnie’s 100th birthday party, as well as little Johnny’s first birthday. Share all your stories with the community on Blogspace where we have room for all of them! We’re talking cyberspace where there is no page limit.
    Also, our community is facing some serious issues at the local, state and national levels. Rapid growth, education and the war in Iraq are just a few of these. Blogspace is a good place to communicate your concerns. Think about the old days when communities had town hall meetings. It’s the same idea! Instead of having to meet at a certain place at a certain time, you can post your comments 24/7.

    The entries to the Draw Truman contest are in and judged. We will be announcing the winners really soon. Three talented elementary students will be receiving a visit from Truman for their classrooms. Truman will bring refreshments and spend time with the children.
