Here’s what we thought worked this week and what didn’t:
Moving the historic Mills House
Thumbs up: The historic Mills House at the corner of Highway 84 and Memorial Drive will live to see another day — and it has a new home. Pastor Tim Parrish and his wife are moving it to their land in Long County, where they plan to restore and live in the house.
Unseasonably warm holiday weather
Thumbs down: It may look like Christmas, but it sure doesn’t feel like it. With high temperatures in the 60s and 70s the week before Santa’s visit, many merrymakers likely were confused about whether to hang stockings or set out Easter baskets.
Bradwell Institute’s expanding speech and debate team
Thumbs up: Students are getting the practice they need to become polished and confident public speakers — skills that surely will serve them well in their academic careers and as they move on to their chosen professions.
Drivers forgetting about safety
Thumbs down: Too many drivers don’t seem to understand that they need to turn on their headlights when it’s raining or foggy. Motorists who use their headlights in inclement weather protect themselves and others.
