HIGHLIGHTS FROMTHISMONTH

FROMDEEDA: I did it again! I put a pumpkin on my porch too early for the Texas heat. As the pandemic presses on I nd myself searching for the light even if it’s to be found in the bottom of a rotting jack-o’-lantern. In our front-page story, we explore our local nurse shortages and applaud those stepping into the profession for the rst time trying to be that light for our loved ones who nd themselves in a dark place. Deeda Lovett, GENERALMANAGER dlovett@communityimpact.com

FROMDARCY: As I wrap up my rst full month at Community Impact Newspaper , I’m excited to jump into fall— both for the weather and our reporting plans. This month, we looked at how changes to arts funding could aect the future of Austin’s creative scene. Darcy Sprague, EDITOR dsprague@communityimpact.com
