After playing for one of Columbia County's top softball programs the past four years, Greenbrier High School's Lee Anne Rees will have the opportunity to play for one of the best collegiate programs next year.

• The A-Team Winter Camp will be held Sundays between Dec. 15 and Jan. 26 at Riverside Park from 1 to 4 p.m for sixth- through eighth-graders. Cost is $100 and will focus on mechanics and individual position training. Registration deadline is Dec. 7.

Thanksgiving is a time to remember all our reasons to be thankful. For many, an appreciation of nature is among the things they are thankful for. So, it's only fitting that some holiday menus will include nature-inspired drinks and dishes.
