On the Next Dimensions

It’s time to dive down, dig in, and get our heads in the game as the end of summer approaches. We learn more about concussions as kids in our area head back to school and sports. Also, we get a taste of bay scalloping in the clear waters of St. Joseph Bay. The United Way of the Big Bend tells us how they are helping our community by focusing on education and they need your help. Plus, we cultivate some ideas about how to transition from summer to fall "In the Garden"!
