I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
It is official!
We are having a contest for a position on the Village Board to be determined in the April election.
Once again, I urge that all candidates prove that they can properly add up a column of 20 numbers and come up with the correct result.
Two separate "vacations" caused me to miss regular postings on this blog since Christmas. One week we spent some time with good friends in the State of Washington, and the other found us in Florida near NASA's launch facility.
In each case we flew on Midwest Express. What a joy! The six inches more legroom than airline U provides was sweet. Wow, no cramps from sitting in a fetal position. The food was ok - average. It's been a while since my last trip on Midwest, so I was a bit surprised to find that cash is no longer accepted for food or drink purchases aboard the plane. Credit cards only.
My wife Meg came home somewhat grumpy the other day after the weekly grocery shopping. It seems that she run into some of the same issues reported by Kimberly in another blog on this website.
It's the last day of the grocery store rebate promotion and with just one more point there would be a step-up to the next level. Drat! There's no way in the world to get it in time. The frustration builds and the time for checkout comes followed by moments of sputtering and muttering. Unlike Kimberly's experience there was no kindly checkout fairy to supply the missing point in this case. "$@*+!^&" Of course, one way to relieve the inner tension is to tell hubby all about it - a kind of catharsis for a harried shopper.
