Is it Back-to-school already?

This post is sort of a public announcement. Our economy is not yet thriving and we all know that back-to-school means extra expenses for school uniforms and school supplies. I would like to encourage anyone, who is able, to purchase an extra notebook or two or a box of crayons, (something on the approved list) etc. along with your child’s school supplies, to please do so. There are so many people still out of work and…

You’d think we’d pray…

Hurricane Season or Oil Season?

First published June 2010      It’s June 1, the day that marks the beginning of hurricane season; the day each year that brings back memories of the past. It is the day of expert opinions on how active the hurricane season will be, as though anyone could predict what Mother Nature has in mind.      Yes, the hurricane season is officially upon us and there is an oil spill of great magnitude invading our shores…
