To all the local prep athletes, their parents and coaches. As the fall sports season winds down, with playoffs under way in some sports and nearing in others, there are no doubt some who are wondering how did the season fly by so fast? Despite how fast a season seems to go, players put in countless hours for themselves, their teammates and their schools, oftentimes parents make sacrifices of various sorts so their children can play, and coaches put in many more hours than most can imagine.
They do it all for various reasons, but our community is better for it.
To the Greater Mount Airy Habitat For Humanity chapter, which on this past Sunday handed over the keys of a new home to the Michael Thomas family. Politicians love to rant about what programs work and don’t work, how to help those who are downtrodden while politicizing those folks with little real change ever taking place. Habitat, working quietly and efficiently, pulling together businesses and individual volunteers, has probably done more long-term good in helping families and communities than just about any other organization.
