HIGHLIGHTS FROMTHISMONTH

FROMDENISE: At Community Impact Newspaper , our mission is to build communities of informed citizens and thriving businesses through the collaboration of a passionate team. I will occasionally mention this in my note from time to time because it is so important that we not forget that. We always want to keep our mission top of mind. That is why it is so important to write about issues such as health care, education and our local real estate economy. This month we are not only highlighting the state of our local real estate market, but we are also reporting on a growing concern of residents of Georgetown becoming victims of roong scams. After a recent hail storm, many are still dealing with the aftermath, which includes damaged roofs. You can read about the concern local homeowners have regarding roong businesses inside (see Page 19). Denise Seiler, GENERALMANAGER
