Well, the big election has come and gone and there are happy faces and not so happy faces. Congratulations to all the newly elected officials. Here's hoping we have a great year(s) ahead of us.
Sunday was Veteran's Day, and we wish all of them the very best. Our world is a better place because of all the men and women who have served their countries over the years.
Our communities extend their condolences to the family of Lori Shalberg, who passed away a week ago Sunday. A huge crowd of family, friends and co-workers attended Lori's funeral last Friday at the Plainview School. Lori was well known by many -- she never knew a stranger and thoroughly enjoyed visiting. She will sadly be missed by all who knew her -- but never forgotten.
Lori L. Shalberg
October 11, 1967 - October 21, 2018
