I believe the biggest and most exciting news this week, hands down, is that the presidential election is finally over! It has been a long campaign trail that has finally come to a halt and I for one am glad. For months we have been bombarded with information over television and social media about the elections. Thankfully, we can all say that we won’t have to listen to any of the election buzz for four more years.
Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. I’m ready for some good chicken and dressing, cranberry sauce, and sweet potatoes! I know the school will have a special meal for students and the community on Wednesday, Nov. 16. If you are going to attend be sure to let the school know so that they can plan to have enough food for the day.
Congratulations to the recently elected school board candidates: Eric Mabe, Doug Hall, John Derek Wilbur and Clark May.
Happy Birthday next week to E.A. Junell on Nov. 16 and Mason Kerby & Matt Garrett on Nov. 17.
Last Saturday I went to Canton and it was covered in people. I thought since there was a chance of ran and it had already showered some that morning that it might deter some folks but when I got there I realized that I was wrong. Traffic was backed up on Highway 19 as you cross over I-20. I didn’t stay long until I had my fill of the crowd and I headed home.
Last week’s news column was pretty lengthy but this week I don’t have as much news to report. Things in the community have been calm, which is always a good thing.
As you travel the highways and byways don’t forget that all roads lead back home and back to Miller Grove. Please send me any newsworthy information. My email address is [email protected].
