Mayor's Corner 8-13-14

Dear Friends:

Please allow me a personal note this week.  The world is in turmoil. Each night we see reports of floods, fires, and any number of natural or man-made disasters.

Sometimes, a dose of trouble hits very close to home.  My sweet wife is having a minor operation this week and just the thought of it has me in a melancholy mood.

First, I’ve decided the definition of a minor operation is one that is done on someone else, or someone else's wife. If Lana is hurting, I'm hurting. If she is sad, I am sad.

If it sounds like love, it is. I’ve watched her bear and raise children, crying when they cry, cleaning up after them (and me), training, folding, rearranging, cooking, and planning. All this has made me more sensitive to her needs.

Mayors Corner 8-6-14

Dear Friends:

One of my worries as the Mayor is what would I, or should I, do if we had a disaster of some kind here in Richfield.

Last week, I participated in an excellent training, provided the state’s Emergency Management Division.  The training involved two full days of learning the framework for managing emergency incidents, large and small. In advance of the course, I had to complete four preparatory self-study courses, complete with four on-line tests. I am happy (and relieved) to tell you that I passed the tests and completed the courses.

Mayors Corner 7-30-14

Dear Friends:

As I attended Monroe’s excellent Pioneer Day celebration last week, I couldn’t help but think about the beginnings of several of our communities 150 years ago. What must that first summer have been like.  Those first settlers didn't have Daylight Saving Time. They worked from sunup to sundown and beyond.  There was so much to be done and I continue to marvel at what they accomplished in those early years.
