The dog days of summer

dog days of summer

So just as we finished the whirlwind that was the last issue, which included the Readers Choice winners, we took a deep breath and dove right into this issue.

And we couldn’t be more happy with it.

In this issue, you’ll read about the people behind the Brooklet Peanut Festival, which is coming up in September. The annual event is a great family-friendly activity that has a little something for everyone.

We are featuring a few people in this issue, including a wonderful young man, Isaiah Budgett. You’ll be encouraged by his story of determination and inspired by his positive outlook. Also featured is this issue’s Everyday Hero, Alex Grovenstein, also known as “Auctioneer Alex.” This humble guy does so much for our community and is deserving of the spotlight — even if he tries to tell you otherwise.

We also are featuring a special family of law enforcement officers from the Hutchens family. There are three generations of them serving others, and we are so thankful for them and what they do to keep us all safe.

And last, we shine a spotlight a Georgia Southern student, Joey Hukin, who won an award for her theatric work. Read all about and be amazed by this talented young lady.

By the time you’re done reading, the kids will be back in school and you can finally relax and enjoy the dog days of summer.  Or not.  Your call.

Hang onto summer as long as you can!
