Three cheers

Starting November off on a positive note, here’s our latest edition of three cheers, where we shout out local organizations, groups, people, etc.

Candy kindness
Since Halloween just passed, we wanted to shout out everyone that organized and contributed to making various community events, where local youth could come celebrate, get candy and have a blast in a safe environment.

These kids have had to endure a number of challenges and restrictions with the return to in-person learning this fall, so it’s always great when they can focus on what’s important, which is being a kid!

People at the polls
It wasn’t too long ago that we had a brief from county legislature regarding a serious need for poll inspectors or election inspectors, as they are more commonly called.
We wanted to thank all the individuals who put in the time to take the necessary class enabling them to be an election inspector. We also want to shout out everyone, from the Board of Elections, to all those working at polling places. While yes, most of these individuals are getting paid for their labor, they all play a very important role in ensuring elections run smoothly.
While many of us strive to get in and out as quickly as possible, it’s easy to lose sight of all the people who make it happen. Thanks for contributing to the Democratic process.

Bigger than sports
At high school sporting events throughout the month of October, we noticed many athletes and coaches donning the color pink in an effort to raise awareness about Breast Cancer.
A special shout out to the parents, athletes and school administrators responsible for these efforts. This past weekend, Liberty High School’s varsity football team raised money for Ride2Survive during their game against Monticello.
There is much work to be done in the fight against cancer, but the camaraderie and support from these community events, including those on a football field or basketball court, matter.
October may be over, but we can still raise awareness year round.
Just a reminder that our 2021 Breast Cancer Awareness Salute, which appeared last month, can still be viewed on our website: www.scdemocratonline.com.
