  • Singing for our unsung heroes

    Hello, everybody. How are you doing with the proposal that each of us do one thing, big or little, to make our community better?
    If you have taken up this cause, I would love to know about it so I could share it with others. Often when a few step forward, more will follow.
    Send me an email, Bruce.Florence@kctcs.edu, or drop a note to the Democrat, and tell me if you have decided on ‘your one thing,’ or have already done your ‘one’ thing to make your community stronger, prettier, or more inviting for all of us.

  • A parent’s nightmare, 10 years later

    It will be 10 years ago on Sunday that an early morning phone call shattered my world.
    My then-22-year-old daughter, Erin, was screaming into the phone that she was hurt. She needed me. She was crying. And, she was in pain.
    It may have been 10 years ago, but I remember it as if it happened yesterday.
    It was Feb. 14, 2006. I was taking Seth to school at HCHS where he was a sophomore. We were planning to stop at Ken’s for their fabulous donuts when the call came through.
