  • Late February is ideal time for pruning

    In a fit of gratitude, I made a list of the things I loved about my life the other day.  I managed eight solid things, none were frivolous; and one prompted the whole exercise:  I love warm February days.

    The court eventually voted to purchase body armor late last year, at a cost of  $12,304 local tax dollars, but that was after there were fingers pointed about why a grant for the protective gear wasn’t submitted and approved.
