School#039;s in, Sept. 6, 2005

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, September 14, 2005

I got behind a couple school buses coming in to work this morning, but it wasn't too bad. Most drivers seemed to be patient, though I did get held up outside the day care center on Piinner Street by somebody conversing with a bus driver, who wasn't even loading kids. The center hold up enough morning traffic without stopping school buses.

I love it when school gets back in session. That's when news picks back up. Things typically slow down from a news standpoint in the summer, but once school gets in, people get riled up, whether over evolution, test scores, football, etc.

I loved our high school football coverage in Saturday's paper. Jason Norman, Andrew Giermak and Michael Steingold did a great a job of providing a full local football report for us. Michael is a student at King's Fork High School who is going to be filling in some sports gaps for us this year. I thought he did a wonderful job.

There are just a few days remaining before the United Way's Nosh on the Nansemond, which takes place from 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday at Constant's Wharf.

There will be food from local restaurants, beer and music to help celebrate the United Way's Day of Caring and to kick off the 2005 campaign in Suffolk.

Tickets are still available for $20 each. We have them here at the News-Herald and there are many other locations that have been listed regularly in the newspaper.

ReMax Across Town is also now selling tickets. I hope everyone comes out Friday. It will be a lot of fun and you'll be helping a great cause.

Drive safely.
