A backward glance…

Two weeks ago, I received an email, “The Back Nine.” My research indicated it was authored by Papa Mike on August 6, 2013, and illustrates just how time moves ahead, and before we know it, we’ve entered the “back nine” of our lives: “How did I get here so fast?  Where did the years go and where did my youth go.”  It hit home as I received it ...

An open house open house

Last Saturday the Somers Volunteer Fire Department held an open house, where they invited residents to come over and take a closer look at what they do and how they do it.

This revelation did not come easy, but come it finally did.
