This week I’m being very brief because we have a lot of news in this edition.

I want to encourage everyone to get out of his or her home after this recent cold snap and hit the Oysterfest grounds in Fulton at some point between Thursday evening and Sunday late afternoon. It’s time for the first big festival of the year!

Included in this edition of your hometown newspaper is a special Oysterfest section.

Let’s get out and celebrate the progress we’ve made since Hurricane Harvey.

Until next week, have a good week.
