Publisher’s Notes

Freedom, Publisher’s NotesSeptember is here! The kids/grandkids and our wonderful teachers, bus drivers, and many school employees are back in school! We may grumble about the fact that there’s more traffic than ever on our streets, and the price of everything seems to be going up.  But when it all seems frustrating, I strive to still be grateful for every day. Sometimes, we just need to step back and put things in perspective. As we all know, life flies by and, in some cases, can be cut short.  So let’s make every day count in the best possible way for ourselves and also for all those around us.

With this September’s front cover, we are happy that for the fourth year, we see Rich’s Auto Tech being Spotlighted as they announce how they will be participating in Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.  As they have for the past several years, Rich’s is offering Free Brakes to customers, and a portion of their labor cost will be donated to the Cleveland Clinic for research to help develop a cure. Thank you, Cody and everyone at Rich’s Auto Tech, for your generosity.

In Remembrance Of: Twenty-two years ago, on a Tuesday morning, at 8:14 am back in 2001, America was forever changed. To this day, many of us can still remember where we were and what we were doing when we heard or saw the tragic news unfolding on the radio or television: our country was under a terrorist attack. Please continue to keep the families and friends of those who lost their lives that day in your prayers, as well as those who are still suffering in the aftermath that will always be known as “911.”

Sometimes, history doesn’t need to repeat itself, if we could all learn and remember,
