   Summer unofficially ends and a new school year begins on Monday in many schools,  including Guilford County.  Even if you are no longer in school, it is a good time for everyone to refocus on goals, to buckle down, and to get to work (and get ready for football).  And while doing so, here are a few reminders for us all.
