As a child I was lucky that the local library was open six days a week.  It was five blocks from our home and it was safe to walk there.

American Water Boil Alert

American Water Boil Alert

Friends and neighbors. This morning as I came to work, I noticed a small sign buried in grass as I was driving up to the Viola Baptist Church and onto highway 39.
