2. Space is limited so you'll want to register today for the Career Changers Workshop held Saturday from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Andrea Rosenthal, M.S., career management expert with more than 15 years experience, will facilitate the course. The workshop will assist those who are seeking to make a career change. Learn how to leverage your skills, education, and personality type to design a strategy for getting the career you really want. Each participant will receive a Career Changers Workbook to assist in exploring and changing careers. Participants will discuss the 4 Steps to realizing core strengths and maximize potential. Many resources will be offered as participants explore their strengths and passions to find their “Right Fit Career.”
The workshop will be held in an East Cobb home. RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-403-0329. Registration fee is $125 and includes workbook and lunch.
3. It’s back. The school calendar issue simply will not go away. It has returned to the Board of Education’s agenda, thanks to Northeast Cobb board member David Banks. He proposes starting the 2011-12 school year Aug. 8, a week earlier than the current schedule and a week later than the balanced calendar the board dropped in February. You can check out Banks Revives Cobb School Calendar Issue and the blog Call to Arms: The School Calendar to read your neighbor's comments and share yours.
4. How do you feel about the light rail transit system? Wednesday we reported on the tri-county transportation summit held at the Cobb Galleria Centre. Residents have opposing opinions about the project. The transit system could help develop the economy. It could also bring more crime to the area, some say. If it could lessen the vehicle accidents on our highways, that would be helpful!
5. Would you like a little entertainment to go with your coffee? Tony Earl Ledford performs at Caribou Coffee located at 1275 Johnson Ferry Road tonight 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. His music is described as upbeat Christian with country tunes that intrigue any listener.
