Choose Joy! A Local Community Newspaper Brings Hope and Joy

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.” The Metro Times’ team exists to drive out darkness with light. You may have heard the old saying that, “bad news sells.” From my experience as the Editor in Chief, over the last eight months, I have found this to be wrong. Since we began seeking out the good news in the surrounding Metro Atlanta area, we have seen people come alive from the positivity in our pages.

A Celebration of Community, an Armadillo Race and the Mayoral Address

On the night of Wednesday, January 10th, I walked into a room full of beautifully dressed businessmen and women, government officials and their families. People were talking and laughing while drinking their beverages and enjoying the event hall of the Cherokee Run Club House. The event, A Celebration of Community was exactly that, Community. The community came out to celebrate the people who have worked hard to make Conyers a thriving city. The night began with Mayor Randy Mills saying that he had the “dubious honor for the last time to call this meeting to order.” Highlights of the night included the transition of the mayor, new council members, honoring outgoing council members and honoring the outgoing mayor.

Write the Vision, and Make it Plain!

Not too long ago I was asked to attend a Vision Board Party. Usually, toward the end and beginning of the year, you can see them popping up. Now, everyone has their own special twist, but to me, it’s all the same – cutting out magazine pictures and posting them on a poster board. I’ve done one before several years ago, and it ended up shoved under my bed collecting dust until it ended up in the trash can. As invitations come in to join the ‘best ever’ vision casting party, I usually politely decline. It’s not that I’m opposed to doing arts and crafts, but the process has never felt actionable enough for me. And, with me being a ‘so what are you going to do about it’ kind of girl, I struggle with ambiguity. But, this time was different. This invitation was extended to my family. I gave it a try and was amazed at the outcome.
