October is Pastor Appreciation Month and celebrates the contributions of priests, pastors, reverends and ministers in the U.S.  In our community, I’d like to thank the following pastors:  Keith Ledford with Community Covenant Church; Robert Jackson with Ijames Baptist Church; Jesse Teal with New Union UMC; Rob Garrison with Liberty Wesleyan Church; and Carroll Jordan with Calahaln Friendship Baptist Church.

Several people have contacted me about the new food establishments in the Sheffield and Harmony area.  They’ve asked for addresses and daily specials.  I’m unable to list the daily specials because they may change each week, but if any of you don’t have access to the internet and want this information, please feel free to call me. Sharpe’s Catering and Homemade Meals, owned by Amanda Sharpe is at 107 Grose St.; Gunter’s Country Store is at 2328 Sandy Springs Road; and Gunter’s Wing Shack is at 555 Memorial Highway. Both of the Gunter establishments are owned by Tina Gunter and Devon Parks. Everyone seems to be real excited that there are restaurants in this area, and especially since many are unable to travel far during the pandemic.
