Start your week with good news and good deeds

Published 11:00pm Monday, July 30, 2012

Good morning and good Tuesday. As we begin another week of summer sun and fun, we stop to reflect on th good news and good deeds of the week gone by and to look ahead to the week to come.

• We’re glad to see the Pioneer Museum of Alabama’s tribute to Agnes Johnson, one of the most dedicated and most loved volunteers at the museum. From her hands-on cooking lessons to one-of-a-kind kudzu jelly, Mrs. Agnes has left her mark on the museum and thousands of youngsters who’ve had the opportunity to meet her.

• Thanks, as well, to the family of T.L. Deveridge, whose generosity is helping provide scholarships and awards for more than a dozen young people throughout the community. Their decision to honory the memory of their late son through these awards helps foster future leaders and benefit our community as a whole. What a thoughtful and giving award!

• Great job to the organizers, volunteers and employees who are making the Dixie Softball World Series a success this week. Despite hot temperatures, occassional rain, and the glitches that sometimes occur, the folks in Troy are showing first-class hospitality and professionalism and are once again reinforcing our community’s reputation as a good place to live, work and play.

• And congratulations, of course, to all the recent graduates at Troy University. It’s time to embark on the next chapter of your lives; we wish you well.

Here’s hoping you have a week filled with good news and good deeds.
