News in the community is a little slow this week. But, sometimes that isn’t a bad thing. We all need to slow down from time to time.
I hope everyone had a nice, safe Labor Day holiday off of work. A cloud cover helped to lower the temperature a little that day and I was able to work outside in the afternoon. I know many people have noticed in the newspaper that there was a teacher unconscious in the Ag shop the other day. Our Ag teacher, Brandon McClure, bumped his head on a piece of tubing and was taken to the Emergency Room. Thankfully everything was okay and the doctor released him to go back to work.

Take a brief moment today to remember the tragedy of 9-11. I vividly remember the day the twin towers fell and all of the uncertainty in our nation. In the days following I remember people being much kinder to each other and helpful and like we were united as one. What has happened since then? Today it seems as if everywhere you look one person is against the other for a multitude of reasons – only caring about themselves. It is a shame that such an Earth-shattering event had to take place to bring people in America together.
