Chatham County’s Engineering Team has informed The Landings Association that weather permitting, repair to the roadway where the rumble strips previously were installed (the intersection of Diamond Causeway and McWhorter Drive and Green Island Road) will begin on Monday, April 20.

The plan is to mill the area and then mobilize an asphalt crew to inlay the areas. Barring any weather delays and unforeseen complications, the work should take approximately four days, start to finish.

At this time last year, I wrote about the Web.com Tour (now known as the Korn Ferry Tournament) and what a huge success it was, especially the Military Appreciation Day. Unfortunately, not only was the event canceled this year, but we also are facing the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. 

As a courtesy for our residents, The Landings Association is maintaining a running list of postponed, cancelled, and rescheduled events shared with us by our island partners and on-island clubs and organizations on our website (https://landings.org/coronavirus).

As we all adjust to the new normal created by COVID-19, we must find creative ways to adapt to those things that we cannot do in-person as we responsibly practice social distancing. As well, many purchases are delayed, and some orders are taking longer to receive. Aware of this fact, The Landings Association is extending its temporarily relaxed non-commercial sign rules until May 15.

The University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography has begun a timber-cutting operation on the wooded portion of its campus at the north end of Skidaway Island. Skidaway Island residents can expect to see an increased number of lumber trucks on McWhorter Drive and the Diamond Causeway.

As we adjust to conducting our business from the comfort of our homes, it is important to make sure that we set ourselves up for success physically, as well as technologically. Working from the sofa or kitchen table may be convenient, but such areas may not provide the physical conditions to support good posture.

To help keep proper posture while working at home, make sure that your laptop or other device is at arm’s length, and that the top of the screen is at eye level. Your feet also should be resting flat on the floor.

One of the stops on many travelers' itinerary is the local museum.
