Good morning and Good Tuesday. As we start the week off, let's take a moment to reflect on the good things that happened last week.

Earth Day focused people on the environment, and Troy Mayor Jimmy Lunsford - sidekicked by Litter Man - toured local schools pushing an anti-litter message to school children.

"Keeping litter off our streets, conserving water and energy and becoming more educated about our our Earth are some positive steps we should all take…" he said.

Good news, good message, Mr. Mayor.

Young players opened their whodunit mystery comedy "While the Lights Were Out" at Charles Henderson High School. Although the lights almost did go out Friday night, the students did a masterful job with their performance.

The Exchange Club honored seven high school seniors for their efforts in the 2002-2003 Youth of the Year essay contest. Casey Campbell, from Pike Liberal Arts School; and David Doty, from Charles Henderson High School; were named Pike County's Youth of the Year for their essays themed "America's Young Patriots - Believing and Achieving for a Better America."

Storms Friday that caused tornado sirens to sound in Troy, delivered much-needed rain to the county without the added punch of damage or injury, although the rain made it a little hard to hear in the We Piddle Around Theater in Brundidge. Players there were concluding their springtime performance of "Come Home it's Suppertime." They even managed to get the water dried up before Saturday night's final performance.
