    Thought for the week: Never regret anything that has happened in your life, it cannot be changed, undone or forgotten. So take it as a lesson learned and move on!

    I can’t believe Lincoln Parkway has been open for 30 years. I don’t even recall it being built that year. I guess with being pregnant, things around you aren’t as important.

    Lincoln Days is this weekend and I hope the weather is good for it. Once again, we will be spending a lot of time at the funeral home for the visitation of Betty Jean Strader, Mike Coffey and Johnny Jackson.
