Sulphur Graphs

What are Sulphur Graphs? Sulphur Graphs are the pulse of the community. Similar to our Community Calendar, but more personal and more timely. Generally speaking, Sulphur Graphs are about individuals, while the community calender is more suited for organizations. Examples include college graduations, dean’s lists, sorority/fraternity pledges, hospitalizations and similar health concerns, hospital volunteers, as well as mentions of out-of-town visitors, announcements of an achievement by a former resident, last minute cancellations (jury calls, for example), things of that nature.
