Sterling’s story inspires neighbors
Cathy did a masterful job on the article featuring our beloved Sterling [Burton] [The Good Neighbor: Everybody loves Sterling, by Cathy Gordon, June 2018]! The photographs all turned out terrific as well! Many thanks to The Buzz for bringing Sterling’s story to life. The article and the party we neighbors hosted for Sterling have brought the neighborhood together even more than before. It’s so nice to have neighbors that check on each other. I heard from several friends who read Sterling’s story, and they let me know how inspiring it is for someone who is 98 to be leading such a vibrant life. Thank you again for the lovely story.
Editor’s note: Robin, thank you for bringing us this beautiful story.
Gifts for gifted dressmaker
I just finished reading your article about Denise Moseley and her passion for heirloom sewing [Heirloom Sewing: From dress to lifetime quest, by Andria Frankfort, May 2018]. Back in the late ’70s, French hand sewing was all the rage in Louisiana. I have a few books and patterns to give to Denise, if she is interested.
Editor’s note: Betty, thank you for your sweet offer. We loved connecting you with Denise.
A fan of podcasts and “Back Porch”
We enjoyed reading Andria Frankfort’s recent piece about podcasts [Back Porch: A world of podcasts, April 2018]. Her columns are always filled with wit and humor as well as useful resources. We are now listening to a variety of podcasts (incorporating the helpful hint of the "1.5") on our phones, in the car, and while working out. Thanks for another timely and practical article.

From our Briarwood student correspondent
I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing two years of being part of “School Buzz.” It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. I learned so much and hope to use those skills when I start college … as I go out into the world I’ll need connections like this to help me succeed in whatever life throws at me next.
