I moved to Augusta in 2008 to cover religion for the Chronicle. I didn't know a soul this far South at the time, but the area is quickly becoming home. Before then, I covered the cop beat and crime while working at a newspaper in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I got my start in Virginia writing features for a community weekly while in college.

Fred Won't Move Out

The Augusta Jewish Community Center plays the movie Fred Won’t Move Out, followed by a discussion about Alzheimer’s diesease and independent living, at 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 4.

The short feature, written and directed by Richard Ledes, deals with the uncertain emotional territory of grown children with aging parents. The partially improvised film was shot in three weeks at Ledes’ parents’ home.

The Georgia chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association leads the discussion after the film.

The Augusta Jewish Community Center is located at 898 Weinberger Way in Evans. RSVP to (706) 228-3636 or augustajcc2@hotmail.com
