Cooler weather is on its way, and I hope you and yours are enjoying the exciting and busy time of fall. Football, fall festivals, school and other activities are in full swing, and I imagine some weeks go by in what seems like a blink of an eye. But, this fall brings us another important event: the election of our next governor and our statewide constitutional officers. I encourage everyone to register and exercise your precious right to vote. The election is Nov. 3, so make plans to cast your vote.
