    Days are getting shorter, but not too short. Kids are back in school, and our community is buzzing with activity.

    High school and peewee football have started and soon you will see boys proudly wearing their football jerseys on game day.  Volleyball and soccer are in full swing, as evidenced by all the cars at the high school, middle school and county park.

    For me, this is the sweet spot of the year. It still is warm, but there is a little chill to the air. Mornings are covered with a fog that lifts off to reveal a beautiful late summer day.
