Thumbs-up to all the parents who came with the kids to trick or treat this Halloween. It made it a safe and fun event and this is something the kids will remember always

Big thumbs up to businesses adding dedicated parking for Veterans.

Big thumbs down to businesses that locate their dedicated parking for orders to go in more ideal spots than their handicap parking and in at least one instance have more spots for orders to go than handicap. I personally don’t visit them.
