Press Pass

Friday, December 9, 2011

George Anderson
A few weeks ago, we kicked off a new video series at DDDnews.com entitled, "Press Pass."

The show is hosted by myself, and is posted on our homepage on Wednesday afternoons. Guests so far have included Sara Graves, executive director of the Kennett Downtown Revitalization Program; Jonathan Mays, president of the Kennett Country Club; and Meg Benson, executive director of the Kennett Chamber of Commerce.

I'll admit that I was a little hesitant about doing the series, as I see myself as more of a "behind the camera" kind of person. However, the experience has gotten easier over the past few week, and I'm growing more comfortable in the position of host.

I put this information here today to let you know if you haven't checked the series out, please do so. If you have any ideas about what you would like to see on the show, email them to ganderson@dddnews.com and I'll see what I can do.

Growing girl

I know many of my readers are probably asking themselves how the newest addition to the Anderson family is doing, and I'm happy to say, she's doing great.

We had to go to the doctor last week over a little cold, and when we were there, we found out that the bouncing baby girl weighed in at 11 pounds 11 ounces, 4 pounds and 5 ounces up from her birth weight just nine short weeks ago today.

For those wondering, we are getting a little more sleep these days, and I find it amazing how quickly those memories of sleeplessness fade away.

'Tis the Season

Tonight marks the return of the Kennett Christmas Parade, and I know my family will be out to support the efforts of the Downtown Revitalization Program and Chamber of Commerce.

Here's to wishing them a successful return of the Kennett Christmas Parade.
