CHEERS ...

To Earth Day! The day is actually observed on April 22, though locally there were many Earth Day festivities on Thursday afternoon. 

To the many young students who participated in various service projects this week — from the Coolville students working in the school garden to the many Athens High School students who participated Thursday in "Service Learning Day." 

To the — gulp — e-scooter craze that may be making its way to Athens. We may come to regret this cheer, what with the impending presence of e-scooters lying next to every other light pole and riders darting between cars all around town. Ultimately, though, this may prove to be a welcome addition to Athens. (We hope.)

JEERS ...

To Mother Nature, once again, for knocking down a bunch of pretty trees around the county in a recent wind storm — especially the ones on College Green. That's no way to celebrate Earth Day.
