  • Stop means stop: Disregarding traffic devices

    Traffic signals and stop signs are placed at intersections for a reason, and the reason is so that people can proceed through the intersection without running into another vehicle.

  • Photos needed for 2009 community yearbook

    Before we know it, 2009 will come to a close. We’ll ring in a new year and say goodbye to what has been.

    Some people may describe 2009 as momentous. For others it was just another 12 months. However you look upon the last four seasons, I hope you looked at some of it through a camera’s lens.

    Our new publication will come with the close of the year. It will be our first Yearbook, and quite honestly, if we don’t get some photographs from our readers, it will likely be our last yearbook.
