I stopped in the Chronicle office on Monday morning to talk to Lisa about the initial meeting of the Neighborhood Watch program, and the impact it can have on the community. This led to a sense of pride in the members of the police department, their training, service, age and representation of different areas of the county.

Even a teenager had commented on the feeling of security he had observed while waiting for his mother to finish her shopping.

The next subject was the clinic staff at Minnie Hamilton Health System. They are so caring and competent. Hopefully, they will be there a long time.

We moved on to the young people in the community. Two young men were featured speakers at a local youth revival and another young student periodically leads the junior sermon at another church. Little children have some positive role models.

There is more involvement from young adults, who are taking part on committees and running for public office.

Suddenly, we realized seven different positives had been covered in a short time. Lisa said, “I think we can make it 10.” So, we kept on going.

CCCOA is making a smooth transition with changes in staff. New programs and ideas are being implemented, building on the leadership of the former administration.

Former Calhouners are returning here to live, along with newcomers who want a better life for their children, away from the cities. They are not just sitting, but are active participants of the county.

Two former students, who return periodically, invited me to lunch. Even though they have not lived here for years, they still have fond memories of their early life experiences as “Calhoun Kids.”

The session ended with respect and admiration for our editor, Newton. He believes that the younger generation should receive recognition for their achievements, whether great or small. He is insistent about accuracy of the contents of the newspaper and passes on his integrity to the staff.

Our brainstorming for positives in our lives had produced far more than 10 things by the time we were finished. Here at the Chronicle, we have a feeling of family and a real love for Calhoun County. I think that helped Lisa and me to see all the good  that surrounds us.

What good things are happening in and around your life? Can you find 10 things?
