  • PRESIDENT'S CORNER: May 26, 2017

    Friday, May 26, 2017

    Memorial Day: Monday is one of those important holidays that so many just consider part of a long weekend or the unofficial beginning of summer. Beginning as Decoration Day after the Civil War, Memorial Day eventually evolved to honor all who died in defense of the U.S.A. in any war. It’s why we fly our flags on the front porch and decorate military graves and salute parading veterans and give heart-felt thanks to any vets we know or meet. A long moment of silence, if you please…

  • PRESIDENT'S CORNER: May 19, 2017

    Friday, May 19, 2017

    Sorry, but I am writing to you from Ruby Hospital...again! This time it was my pulse rate that was more than double the norm. This time they found I was in Afib (Some kind of lie?) and were able to fix it with some kind of new shock treatment that, they promised me, would NOT also cure my sense of humor. I thought I was coming home yesterday, but they said they also suspected sleep apneas, so wanted to watch me overnight. I was asleep, so I don't know if there were people in here keeping watch over me or not. At any rate, I feel good and want to get outta here!
