Week of January 19, 2015

This past week we observed the birthday of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King stood for many things, however, he foremost believed in the rule of law and that it applied to all equally, no matter the worthiness of the cause. He believed to right wrongs in the law, you must make your voices heard in peaceful protests rather than violent acts until the majority of silent Americans recognize the injustice that must be overcome. Today we need the spirit and courage of Dr. King more than ever. America is not perfect; however, our strength lies in our ability to continually become better while offering boundless opportunities to all. Thank you, Dr. King, for your courage, compassion and vision for a better America.

This week we lost a long time police officer of our Town, Fred Bramich. Fred was a kind and gentle man who took great pride in working with young people, especially when it came to educating them in the safe and responsible use of guns. Many have been able to safely enjoy a sportsman's life, thanks to Fred. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Diane, and the family. We all will miss him. Thank you for your service, Fred.
