In God We Trust!

I am sure some of you have seen in the newspapers and on the television how law enforcement agencies across the Country are putting In God We Trust on patrol vehicles.  I think one reason is because we do put our trust in God.  I’m not ashamed to admit that.  Another reason for this is to show pride in our great Nation.  On July 30, 1956 President Eisenhower signed into law our national motto: In God We Trust.  On the 50th anniversary of its adoption, the Senate reaffirmed In God We Trust as the official national motto.  In 2011 the House of Repr

Spring Is Here

Spring is here and with spring comes rain (we hope), flowers, and fires.  There will be agricultural burning going on now in the County.  With the burning, new green grass will be covering the pastures.  What should you do if you see a pasture burning and there is smoke going across the road?  Stop your vehicle safely and turn on your headlights.  Do not drive through the smoke if you cannot do so safely.  It is better to arrive late than not at all.
