Good News happening in county

Published 10:55am Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Winter is upon us again after what could be considered a semi-spring day on Monday, but good things are happening throughout the county.

Here are some of the highlights for this week.

• A group of South Point residents have formed a civic group appropriately named “People for the Point.” The aim of the group is to beautify the village through various cleanups and contests.

Much like the other communities throughout the county, this is something that is needed in each city and village. We commend those who were involved in forming the group to help the Village of South Point in creating a place where residents want to call home.

• Rock Hill senior Courtney Joseph organized a drive throughout the district to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The organization’s program “Pennies for Patients” is the choice for students from the elementary school, middle school, and high school. We applaud Courtney and all involved for showing the drive and desire to help others.

• Late last week, bystanders bravely stepped in to help a woman who was alleged mugged by another woman. The quick thoughts and response by those involved helped authorities apprehend and return the purse. Regardless of the results in the case, we pay special mention to those who voluntarily stepped in to help resolve the situation.
