While wondering where the Summer of ’19 went, these items:

  • Dining & Drink: New breweries on the way in downtown Cartersville and Calhoun. Atlanta Eats branching out to Harvest Moon this week. Duke’s owner trying pizza next in Calhoun. Buffalo Luke’s on the way, too.
  • Floyd County Schools: Our students saw overall gains in latest Georgia Milestones assessments.
  • Education: Back-to-school updates including Salvation Army’s ‘stuff the bus,’ ribbon cutting at new Main Elementary.
  • Secretary of State says paper ballots will be ready for March 24 presidential primary. Democratic president hopefuls debate tonight, Wednesday (preview the race on today’s Druck Report). Floyd Democrats meet Thursday.
  • Rant of the day: Time to test all the tests we’re giving to our students and teachers. ‘Education reform’ needs to go beyond flavor-of-the-month politicians.
