  • 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.
