The first week of February was an eventful one. As usual, I started the week out worshipping with my church family at First Baptist, Monroeville, after which I enjoyed an after-church brunch/lunch at Kat’s Restaurant. I spent time in court in Evergreen and in my office working on various cases. I also attended several community events. On Tuesday, I attended the library’s National Freedom Day celebration commemorating the 13th Amendment. On Wednesday, I announced my new campaign website. I also stopped by the Monroe County Spelling Bee and saw Taliyah Richardson of Monroeville Middle School become its 70th winner. On Thursday, I joined other friends and family members at Excel High School for a very rainy Excel-JUB basketball game and senior recognition night. Although the boy’s game got rained out due to the flooding, I saw the girls play and the recognition ceremony. On Friday, in more favorable weather, I visited Monroe County Higb School for their senior night and the MCHS-Shields game. I got to chat and take a photo with Maurice Woody, Monroe County Schools’ new transportation director, recently retired principal of MCHS, and perhaps most importantly, Amanda’s former high school track coach. :) And finally, on Saturday, I visited many citizens of Conecuh and Monroe County, including Otis Daughtry.
