Prepare now for Hurricane Season

Today is the official start of the Atlantic hurricane season. Forecasters are finding this year’s hurricane season hard to predict. They have said the current warmer ocean temperatures would normally be expected to increase tropical storm and hurricane activity, but we also have an El Nino event brewing, which usually has the opposite effect.

Crestview Commons opening hindered by lack of turn lane

The first businesses at Crestview Commons started opening last week, among them Aldi and Planet Fitness. We are excited about Crestview Commons. Its selection of businesses, which includes Ulta, Marshall’s, Burlington, Five Below, Chili’s and Chipotle, are great picks for the area and offer something for just about everyone.

Crestview High School held its commencement ceremony last Friday night and another school year is in the books. The 2022-2023 school year was my first full year of covering high school sports since the 2014-15 school year and it was great. It doesn’t take me long to bond with athletes and my heart is full while somewhat sad as I watch another class go into the world.

As Christmas Day approached, I felt homesick and lonely in a strange city. Being of the Jewish faith, my family never really celebrated Christmas, but mother always cooked the traditional kosher turkey. No tree or presents. We only listened to the Queen’s message.

When I was younger, this was my favorite time of the year. School was just letting out, I had the summer ahead of me to go to the pool, play outside, go to summer camp and enjoy the weather. I’m grateful to have the winter weather behind me, but summer doesn’t have the same appeal to me now as it did back then.
