Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down


Thumbs-up to Children’s Discovery Museum and Speedy Stop for hosting the school supply drive-by. Thanks for being a place in the community where people can go for resources like these. It is so needed.

Thumbs-up to Sweet Fountainz Bakery for opening and a bright and beautiful remodel. If that wasn’t enough, the food and sweets were absolutely delicious!

Thumbs-up to the first successful week of high school football. May the rest of the season be just as safe.

Thumbs-up to all the veterans who have served our country. The recent celebration of the 75th anniversary of the ending of World War II and the ongoing wars in the Middle East today are reminders of the price of freedom. We truly honor and appreciate the service of all veterans.

Thumbs-up to Labor Day, when we take a break from work for a day to rest and reflect. We hope your celebration is safe.

Thumbs-up to all who are volunteering to help people whose lives are turned upside down by Hurricane Laura. We can never forget how much help we received from strangers from around the country three years ago after Hurricane Harvey devastated our area.

Thumbs-up to all the front line emergency workers who responded to the horrible tragedy of 9/11 19 years ago. As we prepare to observe this dark day in our history, let us remember the patriotism and teamwork that came as a result and make them a part of our everyday lives again.
