This month there’s been a unifying factor in the city, one that has connected community members no matter what their politics or whether they are Comet or Bronco. The memory of Amanda Riley a has brought out the best in the Snellville community.
We all have bosses, someone to tell you when and where and what to do, but not everyone is blessed with working for a true leader. So who is your Jim Markham?

We’ve passed Father’s Day, but some days bring back more memories than others despite what the calendar says. For some reason, mowing the yard always brings back memories of my dad.
These days there are a lot of folks drawing attention to themselves, making humble heroes like Deputy Kyle McMinn stand out even more.
There is no shortage of charity work an octogenarian can do that would avoid any and all contact with prison inmantes, but Jean Brownlee was steadfast in her work at the prison, which included conducting Bible studies and helping inmates learn to read.
What I like about these months is the fresh food that comes from trips to the farmers market and from our own garden as well.
