    But it doesn’t always happen that way. Last week, one very unlucky snake attempted to swallow an apparent believer in the old pelican vs. frog cartoon: “Never, ever give up.”

    Sept. 11, 2001, is a date that few Americans could forget. Many people have vivid recollections of where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news of terrorist attacks.

    A “Remembering 9/11” program is being planned locally to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the attacks.
