Robert’s Rules of Order #1

Hi! This is Robert Stevenson with Greenwood Calendar.  In my wanderings around the world for 54 years, I’ve accumulated some peeves (I can’t really call them pet peeves.)

Robert's RuleNow that I just celebrated another birthday, I feel I’m getting closer to becoming older and wiser. Hence, from time to time, I will be sharing my thoughts on Southern Hospitality. (No, I wasn’t actually born in the South, but Greenwood is my Hometown!)

Here’s my first Top 10 List

  1. When stopping at an intersection intending to go straight, choose the left lane and leave the right lane open for someone hoping to turn right on red.

2. When you’re driving parallel to another car in the left lane, note that the left lane is also known as the passing lane.

3. When sitting in a closed environment, such as a doctor’s office, avoid the orchestra. Turn your phone’s cute sound effects off.

4. When your favorite band belts out a new bass booming ballad while you’re in your boss ride, spare us the fRobert's Rulesree concert. Roll up your windows!

5. When you’re in line at Walmart speaking on your hands-free phone – Stop! We don’t need to know your dinner plans.

6. When you disagree on someone’s facebook post, make your point well in one comment. Don’t hijack someone’s post by leaving your wise words on everyone else’s comments.

7. When a pedestrian is waiting to cross your path, let them go. When the teen behind you beeps at you for your generosity, wave with all five fingers.

8. Remember how nice it was when you received a nice card? Send thank you notes.

9. When you think you’re right, and the old man is wrong – Respect your elders.

10. When you see someone throw a wrapper on the ground, remember there are two kinds of people – those who litter and those who help keep America Beautiful.

 

Thanks for listening. I’d love to add your words of wisdom to Robert’s Rules of Order.

Dr. Rob

Greenwood Aldi is expanding

The Greenwood Aldi is expanding. According to local Aldi’s management, they are adding another aisle. When asked if new products will be available, the reply was, “We’re not sure right now, but most likely there will be more organic foods.”

Aldi’s will close for a short time in May. The expected date to reopen is tentatively set near Memorial Day.

Susan Nabors, frequent Aldi shopper said, “I can’t wait for the remodelling to finish. We love Aldis.” She added that she was also excited about possibly getting more organic food.

Beer and wine to be offered at upcoming Lander Bearcat games

Beer and wine to be offered at upcoming Lander Bearcat games

 

In an effort to enhance the fan experience at Dolny Stadium, Lander officials have agreed to the sale of beer and wine for 11 baseball games during the 2017 season, beginning March 3.

While the measure applies to attendees 21 and older, the focus is to get more Lander alumni and the Greenwood community to support a rapidly growing baseball program.

“Our intent is to provide Bearcat fans with an enhanced game day experience with this additional amenity,” said Brian Reese, who became Lander’s new athletic director in January.

 

The game dates that beer and wine will be sold to fans are:

Ÿ March 3-4; March 16; and March 24-25;

Ÿ April 1, April 7-8; and April 14-15; and

Ÿ May 5.

The majority of the games will be played on Fridays and Saturdays, plus one Thursday night game.

During the April 1 double-header vs. Young Harris, beer and wine will be served only during the second game.

“We will have a limit of three beer purchases per person, and we won’t have any Sunday-game sales,“ Reese said. “All patrons wishing to purchase or consume beer/wine must be of legal age and must present proper identification showing they are of legal age.”

Patrons wishing to purchase beer or wine will be issued a wristband once they show proper identification. Beer/wine sales will begin 30 minutes before the first pitch and conclude at the end of the seventh inning.

Partnering with Lander in this new measure is former Lander alumnus Kevin Prater, ’84, one of the owners of Sports Break, a popular local hang-out for both alumni and students.

“Beer and wine sales are new to Lander baseball concessions,” Prater said, “but even without them, people get to come and watch some really good baseball.”

In recent years, Lander has had one of the top baseball programs in the southeast – making its second appearance in three years in the NCAA Division II College World Series in 2016.

“We have a beautiful facility, an excellent game day atmosphere, and we have a great local business partner in this amenity to help us add to the fans’ overall experience.” Reese said. “And if the beer and wine sales work well for these 11 games, we’ll revisit the idea of selling them at more games.”

Greenwood’s Growing in new directions

Greenwood’s Growing in new directions

In addition to Holiday Inn Express and Panera Bread which opened in Greenwood this past week, you probably already know we’re getting a Lidl grocery store across from the Greenwood Mall and beside Buck Stove and Pool.

But did you know about these:

At the Intersection by the Lake Bilo and Master’s RV, three houses were recently towed away to make room for Self Regional Hospital expansion office.

 

Your friends at Camp Chinquapin are expanding to Hwy 72 just beside Mathis Plumbing.

 

Just past Jackson Station and across from Fred’s will be a new Dollar General soon.

 

Also on Hwy 72, folks looking for an auto service center may be interested to find out Greenwood has a new choice.
