Editor’s Note • January 2022

If you read or watch the news, it sometimes feels like not much is new, but we can still enjoy the collective sense that January 1 brings some kind of change and renewed hope to all of us. Our cover story is about a positive change in Georgetown and we’re happy to share. 

As I am writing this, it is an 80-degree December day and I’m thankful again that I live in Texas. That’s a good start. 

I suppose, while I generally eschew resolutions, there is a lot of content in this issue that impresses upon me that I could be a teensy bit healthier. Thankfully, Tammy Stewart and Heather Hanson have some baby-step suggestions that even I can’t mess up. 

Much of this issue is about healthy things; food, exercise, nutrition, doctors and dentists, and more, but we are delighted to also share a few of the ways our readers can help and support our GISD teachers and staff. They continue—often unseen—to go above and beyond for our children and, while I love being an editor, I still occasionally nurse my childhood dream of being a bus driver. 

In between, we have a wrap-up of shelter successes, and news from Commissioners Court about redistricting. Plus, I know we are all superstorm veterans, but there are also some reminders about preparing for a harsh winter.

And, however you may be celebrating or fretting about the new year, I’ll just leave this…Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
Isaiah 43:18-19

  1. I am co-chair of programs for the Georgetown Texas Lions Club. We are look looking for a speaker for our February 9 noon meeting. We like to learn about the community we serve. Do you have anyone available to speak to us. (I enjoyed the Hollywood connection story.)
    Please let me know as soon as possible.
