Some days you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t.
Last week had one such day as what emergency management authorities called “a potent storm system” moved across the Wiregrass.
Sometimes there are no words.
That is exactly what I thought as I watched Fort Rucker firefighters in full “battle rattle” gather in the center of the post Soldier Support Center as they prepared to climb 110 flights of stairs in honor and memory of first responders who died in the terrorist attacks on the United States Sept. 11, 2001.
That more than 700 people of all ages gathered at schools throughout Coffee County on a Sunday afternoon to pray is significant.
That it was on a stormy afternoon—and still more than 700 people gathered at the schools is significant.
It was a social media post that hurt my heart.
A woman asked — online — why a particular media source chose to essentially sensationalize a recent incident at a school in which all the adults involved clearly went “above and beyond” to protect the students involved.
Some stories are meant to be shared and I do believe this is one of them.
The June 3 headline announcing that Enterprise had been selected as a Main Street Designated City was followed by headlines announcing a citywide kickoff celebration at the Farmers Market June 24.
If you mix the colors Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine red and Navy blue you get the color purple.

I remember it well because it was the first real-world, boots-on-the-ground newspaper article I wrote— and there was my pride and joy with a big red slash through the word “dynamic.”
He introduced himself to me with a smile, calling himself a “retiring pastor.” Said he will be 84 years old next month. He was at Dauphin Junior High School to pray, he said. He remembers when praying in Enterprise City Schools was more than a once a year “Prayer Walk.”
To say that the people watching the Dale County Commission unanimously pass a resolution realigning the duties of the chairman—with absolutely no prior public discussion at all and at the same meeting during which it was first introduced—were left shaking their heads is the truth.
“Notice is hereby given that the mayor and city council of the city of Enterprise will host a public meeting at the Enterprise Farmers Market, 525 North Main Street, at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 25, for the purpose of receiving comments from interested persons regarding the city of Enterprise’s recycling program, its status and future.”
Once upon a time recycling was thought of as a way to save the planet.
The thought was that if each citizen would take responsibility for reprocessing their own discarded items, the collective good could be hugely impactful on the environment.
