Busy month begins with good news

The first week of one of the Miss-Lou’s busiest months has passed us by, taking its annual events with it.

Artists displayed their work for the third Art & Soul Festival and plans for next weekend’s events — Cathedral Fall Fest and the Phatwater Kayak race — are ongoing.

But a few other good headlines sneaked into your newspaper last week. Let’s review them just in case you missed one.

4Parents and teachers at West Primary School can soon release their fears about the school’s location. For years, those connected with the school have held in the back of their mind that if there were some kind of emergency, students would be trapped since there is only one way in and one way out of the school.

But this week county leaders broke ground on a new road project that will provide a second exit. The road will also make daily drop offs and pickups much easier. We are glad county supervisors recognized a need and followed the project to this point.

4The world came to Co-Lin this week, when the community college hosted a college fair, inviting local high school students. College recruiters from around the southeast were on hand to speak with students who might not otherwise ever get information on the far away schools.

Co-Lin is truly serving its mission as a community college by hosting such events. We thank them for what they give back to our daily lives.

As October kicks into overdrive, remember that there’s something to do every weekend this month. And with so much going on, we are bound to have more good news.
