But as busy as I’ve been I’m extremely grateful to be working in  profession that I do. I get to do some great things. And in the last few days I have done some interesting if not great things.  (Thurs – Monday) I attended 2 separate funerals for prominent citizens of my community, because I knew them and their spouses.

How's the infrastructure?

We all saw it coming and it appears that the issue of infrastructure has arrived! With the housing meltdown came the tax crisis. Towns and Cities are out of money. More and more I’m getting asked about local government. And those questions are obvious as we try to avoid pot holes while trying to view properties. A small local town in my area avoided replacing water lines for so long that it is now replacing the lines under duress. And that school down the street, is it scheduled to close next year? Sheriff and Police services are suffering as well. … Click For More
