Worst Date Ever
by Melodie Campbell 
 
Jennie has been a widow for two years. Her twelve-year-old son thinks it's about time she started dating, and so does her best friend, Angela. So with Angela's help, Jennie signs up to an online dating site. Within hours, she has several dates lined up for the week. Surely there will be one Prince Charming in the bunch. And if not, it's only one date, right? How bad could it be?

May 7:
The Middle Ground
by Zoe Whittall
 
Missy Turner thinks of herself as the most ordinary woman in the world. She has a lot to be thankful for: a great kid, a loving husband, a job she enjoys and the security of living in the small town where she was born. Then one day everything gets turned upside down. She loses her job, catches her husband making out with the neighbor and is briefly taken hostage by a young man who robs the local cafe. With her world rapidly falling apart, Missy finds herself questioning the certainties she's lived with her whole life.

*Civil Air Patrol Homeschool Program
 February 18 at 11 AM

Ware Shoals Community Library homeschool program for February will host special guest Squadron Commander Theresa Engel and 2nd Lieutenant Kayla Engel from the Civil Air Patrol.  The Emerald City Cadet Squadron, located in Greenwood, is one of the fastest growing squadrons in the South Carolina Wing.  The squadron produces well-disciplined cadets, trained leaders, and promotes healthy drug free living.  The cadet members of the squadron have numerous opportunities to attend encampment, get their pilots license, travel the world, attend airshows, and more.

CAP conducts services including Search and Rescue, Disaster Relief, Humanitarian Services, Air Force Support, and Counterdrug operations and participate in search-and-rescue efforts.   CAP flies more than 85 percent of all federal inland search-and-rescue missions directed by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fl. Outside the continental United States, CAP supports the Joint Rescue Coordination Centers in Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico.  Just how effective are the CAP missions? Nearly 100 people are saved each year by CAP members.

The homeschoolers program will consist of discussions of numerous programs the CAP does within the community and also how they assist with everything from parades to rescues across the nation. CAP will also offer several hands on activities, crafts, and stem projects.   The program will offer an appreciation for and knowledge of aerospace issues.  The program is free and open to anyone who would like more information on Civil Air Patrol Programs.
