Voice of Freedom

Things are quiet around town. I wait for my phone to ring or my email to come in with some news to share with my readers and all I get is nothing. I guess it just has been too cold to go out and socialize.

I just heard that Coach Shaw is up and walking around and now in rehab. Soon he will be back home where he belongs. He is truly a walking miracle.

Well I guess that’s it for this week, so until next week, stay warm, stay safe, be kind to your neighbor, remember spring is right around the corner and God bless.
