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.
Today I'm turning Paul's Falls over to a guest blogger - Randy Newman - who is responding to an earlier blog by Jeff Davis:
I am such a lucky man! Last week Meg and I had the opportunity to take a spring vacation. We stayed at a timeshare in Hot Springs Village, AR. We chose to drive rather than fight the crowds and hassles at airports.
On the way down we watched the scenery change from grubby brown winter colors ever so subtly to light green. When we arrived at our condo, the leaves were just starting to emerge on the trees. The dogwoods were in full bloom.
A headline in the April 20th Wall Street Journal read:

I may be a little dense, but after throwing around over a trillion of our bucks to stimulate the economy, our President is now going to nickle and dime some programs started in earlier administrations.

1. Wash your hands several times an hour. Use plenty of soap and water.
