THE HOBO HOMEFRONT: Observe traffic safety, Head Start safari

Published: Saturday, October 12, 2013 at 07:53 PM.

My name is Amber Kelley — maiden name Howell. I am a Laurel Hill “lifer.” Although I moved away for a short period following high school, this peaceful community beckoned me back.

In my opinion, this is the perfect location to raise a family. My wonderful husband, Adam, and I have five children, two of whom are miniature Hoboes, just starting their school career and loving it.

Long-time News Bulletin readers may remember my great aunt, Estelle Rogers, who previously wrote about her experiences in Laurel Hill through “Up on the Hill.”

I’m following in her footsteps, but my column will have a bit of a different spin, informing readers of community events and happenings.

Traffic safety

Recent temperamental weather has residents enjoying beautiful clear blue skies just moments before ducking and running for cover due to thunderstorms that seem to appear from nowhere!

Many mornings have been extremely foggy, forcing drivers to keep their lights on well into 9 or 10 a.m. — which reminds me: Between 7 and 8 a.m. and 1:50 and 3 p.m., our school zone lights are flashing, so your speed should be decreased from 35 mph to 20 mph.
