From the Publisher (November 2016)
One of the advantages of living in South Alabama is being able to take part in outdoor activities year round. No snow and ice to keep you from traveling around the South, AND you don’t have to own snow pants and crazy snow shovels and boots?… deal. There is so much going on in the world that grinds to a halt when the winter temperatures ease in. Even though we don’t wind up with snow and ice everywhere, one thing is for certain; winter is here.
I am super-excited to finally have some weekends in which I can pack a backpack and wander off into the woods without fear of being eaten by a snake or sweating to death in my sleep. Sometimes (for me, anyway) the best way to unwind is to get away from everything and experience things on my own. That is not to say that I don’t thoroughly enjoy a night out on the town with my friends. I definitely love being out and taking in live music and other talents; it’s just that I enjoy taking myself back to a primitive state of mind. This is the time of year I like to get outdoors the most.
By the time you read this I will have gotten married, gone on a honeymoon and hung out with some witches in Salem, Massachusetts. We are so pleased to be able to produce The Local every month, and really cannot wait to see what the future has in store for us!
We are super-appreciative of all the support over the years and will continue working to promote all that is happening in the Wiregrass. We would also love your feedback. If you would like to write us to express any comments or concerns, feel free to do so at firstname.lastname@example.org, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Thanks for picking this up and be sure spread the word about local living.
