            Spring rains affect lots of folks

            As the rain continues to fall around the area, we’re reminded of the old saying that “April showers bring May flowers.” If so, we’re going to have lots of pretty flowers this spring.

                  Who really gets all the breaks?

                  Have you notices how traffic flow and traffic lights always seem to go against you. How people ignore the “15 items or less” signs in stores, how the dog always seems to chew up valuable items instead of junk? Editor Don Whitten agrees, to a point, but then notes that you just don’t notice as much when things go your way. (April 13, 2015, Page 4)

                    More vacations coming this summer?

                    Are “staycations” a thing of the past with the economy improving and gasoline prices dropping? We think you will see more visitors to the community as well as more of us leaving for trips out of town this summer as people return to their vacation mode. (April 13, 2015, Page 4)
