On Wednesday (September 30), Chatham County Chair Al Scott extended the local state of emergency for Chatham County.

Chatham County has informed The Landings Association that beginning October 2, a contractor of Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) will be working overnight on the Diamond Causeway Bridge (Skidaway Narrows fixed bridge) conducting an annual inspection. The work will take place from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., to allow for minimal impacts on traffic as during the work one lane of traffic will be closed. However, please expect and plan accordingly for delays if you will be out between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., when crews will be working.

If you notice flags at half-staff on Sunday, October 4, it is in honor of National Firefighters Memorial Day.

The United States Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to remember America’s fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the foundation has developed and expanded programs to honor our fallen fire heroes and assist their families and coworkers.

Sixteen years ago, Sparrow Field was an overgrown, abandoned sod farm. Today, thanks to the efforts of people like Shirley Brown, the field and gardens are a haven for nature lovers, bird watchers, and gardeners, and a living classroom for the study of plants and insects.
