Welcome to my new Blog

I would like to thank The Citizen for giving me both Columnist and Blogger space and Betsy Tyler space as well.

I look forward to maybe moving all Update materials to printed form in The Citizen to make information more timely and hopefully save the taxpayers some money along the way.

It has been an eventful year so far. Becoming a Columnist and Blogger on The Citizen, Adding broadcasting to meetings, turning the CSX Bridge to Nowhere into the Bridge to somewhere, getting the Flat Creek Bridge open, getting the final easements and property to finish the Paschall tunnel and paths, a new Executive Director or Tourism along with some other changes, changing the Industrial Park Census track rating from Tier 4 to Tier 1, enhancing buffer ordinances, tightening ordinances on grass height and other cleanliness issues, moving the vacant home ordinance forward after citizens demanding action for several years now but getting none and many other changes. We have been busy with more to come.

There are also areas of concern. I will address some of those in my printed column.

So, this is basically an introduction to my Blog. Over time I will better figure our exactly how I will put it to use.
