    Thought for the week: Be grateful and be positive, because life is too short to always be worried. Let go of the stress and realize you’re blessed.

    Hope everyone is careful driving Lincoln Parkway now the speed limit has gone up. I guess everyone knows if the speed limit is 65 MPH they will be driving 75, just saying. I never liked the Parkway, so definitely won’t be driving it now.

    Thought for the week: In the midst of your struggles and in season of pain; never lose your hope, never lose your joy, never lose your faith, but most of all never lose your praise.

    Welcome back the cold temperatures and snow flurries. I’m not happy with it.
