  • It might be cold and snowy (in very late February) as I write this, but the world continues to turn same as ever, and I am delighted to have some really good news in the mix of this month.

    Dust off the ice skates, folks! Councilman Joey Herrera has a working plan, a working group of area residents who are moving full steam ahead to refurbish the long abandoned skating pond at Montezuma once again. Herrera’s enthusiasm is contagious and I had a fun visit with him and Jesus Lopez on “Over the Back Fence” radio program on KFUN recently.
