Although Veteran’s Day has come and gone, let us remember throughout the year to always say “Thank You for your service” when you see our veterans. Their dedication and sacrifice to protect our freedoms, should be honored and respected every day.
The repair on the handicapped fishing pier is very close to completion. Last week the final touches were finished on the rip rap underneath the pier. The railings will be replaced, when they are ready.
Also, the docks have been removed for the season at Breakwater Park. However, the street lights and lighthouses will remain on until the end of November, for those still fishing along the break wall.

For a city of our size, we are very fortunate to have a high number of dedicated nonprofit groups. As busy as everyone’s lives are in the present time, it is very commendable that people volunteer to start new ideas for our community. Even though this year’s Little League season has come and gone, it was recently brought to my attention that way back in the 1970s, three people were instrumental in the formation of our Little League. Thanks to John Thompson, Francis Hanes, and Gloria Hanes (now Sandberg) eight teams were formed and competitive games set up with other cities – all on only one field. And now, Holtwood Complex is comprised of 7 separate state-of-the-art fields for the children, along with the Little League Tournament which draws in over 60 communities. Thank You, John, Francis, and Gloria for starting an idea, which brought us to the present successes of today!
Have A Great Day! And remember, “We all have possibilities we don’t know about. We can do things we don’t even dream we can do.” — Dale Carnegie
