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.
This morning when I stepped on the batrhroom scale it groaned more than usual. So after a hearty breakfast of fruitloops and coffee I decided that it is time to shed a few pounds.
We took a ride today and noticed that the grass was green and healthy on all of the lawns we could see. In mid-afternoon we walked in a field near TJ school and noticed that dandelions were in full flower and some were even spreading seeds.
This evening I got a phone call from a "Private Caller" who represented himself as a member of a veterans group in Germantown.
It is true. Good jobs are available in the manufacturing sector all around our area. But, companies are having trouble finding people with the skills required for these jobs.
