Gone With the Wind
Thursday, October 06, 2011      3 comments

There seem to be fields on fire across the state today. The largest on is 20 miles long in the middle of the state. I am sure those fire departments have their hands full. All we can do is pray that the winds die down so they can get their... Read more

October already. My, how the month of September left just as quickly as it arrived. Time to revisit goals and see if changes need to be made. The football team lost their game last night. On the plus side, they seemed to work together b... Read more
