  • Why you should vote

    In 1789, when our nation’s Constitution was penned, the founding fathers bestowed American citizens with certain rights and liberties that were hard fought for, but needed to establish our great nation. Yet, almost 220 years later, many take for granted one particular privilege that is a foreign concept to numerous other countries.

No matter what side you are on, we hope when you go to the polls Nov. 4, you base your decision on facts, not fear.

Local and company officials planted a tree.
