The Season Of Farewell

What a remarkable day it was today! All the beauty of autumn without any of its accompanying regrets, because as it’s still “technically” summer you haven’t had time to accrue fall’s failures yet. But make no mistake, summer is over. And with the end of the season, it comes time for us to say farewell to our summer reporters. It seems like only yesterday that we first bid them hello. Time passes so quickly! Let us all applaud them for the excellent work they’ve done. Here are a couple of pieces you’ll want to read again (or perhaps for the first time). Keep an eye out for these names, you’ll be seeing them elsewhere soon enough. Thanks, kids!
