Because of Memorial Day, there will be no email on Monday. Of course, there will probably still be a few posts that go up over the weekend. So feel free to take a gander through the website and see what you may have missed!

Hey, if you get inspired to write a letter to the editor or you think of something that is happening in your circle of friends or organizations, use that time to drop me a note at

But most of all, take time to remember our fallen veterans this weekend. Make a trip to your local veteran's organization for their services, take the kids to the cemetery to visit the graves of loved ones that you've lost.

I'll catch up with you again on Tuesday!
