Hello Readers! I’m back from my sabbatical with another edition of “What’s Up in Odenville”.

School has been back in session a couple of weeks now and I am still trying to adjust to the fact I no longer have kids in school. My baby graduated in May, which was hard, but not having to run around like a lost Christmas goose trying to get back-to-school clothes and supplies was very strange. One would think we saved a lot of money, but one would be wrong. Baby boy has been keeping the roads hot, so what I saved in back-to-school items I lost in gas money. It’s time somebody got a J-O-B or he will find himself living in a T-E-N-T.

Let’s get to the news.
