Citizen of the Year

The Spirit of Clinton Committee is asking for nominations for the 2015 Citizen of the Year.

Season’s Greetings

This will be my final column of 2015 (unless something special should occur) as I am taking some time off to spend with family. I want to thank my faithful readers for their continued support.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a safe, happy holiday. I hope the New Year brings health and happiness to all.
