Fall season getting you down? Over the last several months we have all been hoping for a little cooler weather, a cessation of the bugs and time from our many chores to have a little fun. Now if only the weather would cool off enjoy for us to enjoy it. We may be inviting the bad weather by asking for cooler temperatures but we really could use it right about now.
The holidays are coming, people are traveling more, visiting their family and just trying to get out more. So, please be careful out there when you on the road. Hopefully, everyone’s harvests have gone well and the fall crops should be getting ready for picking if they haven’t been already. The kids have been enjoying school, we hope, participating in their chosen sports and learning new things. But we all need a little break every now and then. If you were able to attend the Pioneer Festival last month we hope you have a great time, took lots of pictures and are willing to share your experiences. Drop us a line using our Contact Us form.

Over the last few months we have been getting some email questions and we thought we would post them here so that they might get answered. Communication is the key to get more people to come to Lafayette County, sharing knowledge with others is another way to help bring more visitors and possibly more businesses to the area. Some of the questions I am unable to answer so they will be added below in hopes of our readers will be able to help them out. I apologize for the delay in getting back to you with your questions and we hope to do better over the next year. So, keep them coming and one way or another someone will be able to answer them!

LOOKING FOR STUDENT INTERN AND GUEST REPORTERS
We have finally gotten our website filled out with lots of information about Lafayette County Florida. And now we are looking for Student Intern Reporters and Guest Reporters to write about events, sports, business and general happenings within the county.
Each student intern will be responsible for their assigned area, research their own articles, interview their subjects, take pictures and write their own articles. Each intern will receive credit for their writing and a letter of recommendation at the end of their term of service. We prefer that the students be living in Lafayette County Florida and between the ages of 16 to 18. Those under 18 will need a parent’s signature on the application before being accepted. Each reporter needs access to a computer, the internet, a digital camera (or decent camera cellphone) and love to write. The interns will only have to post one article a week each as well as do their own editing, arrange the pictures on the post, updated our pages when necessary and promote our website and the articles to their friends and family.
