Letter to the Editor

Body
Dear Editor Pandemic, confusion, conflict. This is the atmosphere of society as I see it today.

Stop whining, or get out and vote

Body
Every election, precinct volunteers hand out thousands of those little ovalshaped red, white and blue “I voted” stickers and chances are they’re still using stickers that were part of an order made decades ago. In other words, they give out far fewer of those stickers than they should because frankly, nobody seems to be interested in voting anymore.

Marriage

Body
I am officially a married woman. Saturday, October 10, I had the immense honor of marrying my absolute best friend and soulmate, Skyler. It was such a beautiful ceremony and reception. It was everything I have ever dreamed of, my fairytale wedding, I caught my prince charming and everything!

Joke of the Week

Body
How are cats and a sentence different? A cat has claws at the end of its paws; a sentence has pause at the end of its clause..

Moron Rule

Body
I was the designated family driver’s education instructor and for the most part, I think I did a pretty god job. I can ride in a vehicle with any of my three kids (all adults now) and not be completely white knuckled because I instilled in them a sense of defensive driving.
