Moving Forward….

The Lake Park Town Commission will be in session tomorrow evening, February 15th beginning at 7PM in Commission Chambers.  The meeting will take place in Town Hall at 535 Park Avenue.

One of the items on the agenda will be to vote on an Interim Town Manager.  Mr. James Titcomb is before the Commission for approval.

At the last meeting, Commissioners waxed poetically about the desire to work with Mr. Titcomb upon his approval.  Commissioners signaled a new desire to work together under Titcomb’s leadership.  It is my hope that we all keep our word on this and that the Community will hold us ALL to the levels of highest decorum.  If anyone steps out of line in their tone, manner or expected behavior I expect the community to stand up and let it be known.

We ALL must act in a more responsible way for our citizens.  NO MORE can these games that have poisoned our Town for the last 2 years continue, it is time to step up as leaders or move aside so others can take our place.

A complete agenda for tomorrow evening’s meeting may be found here.

My Valentine

I first met my Valentine on April 28, 1964.  From that day until today she has held my heart.
From the first day I met her, my Valentine has loved me without question.  She comforts me when I am sad, she celebrates my successes and provides guidance through every step of my life.
As a child she kissed my bumps and bruises, as an adult she kisses my heart.
Through almost 46 years of life, I have never doubted my Valentine’s love, not for one day, not for one moment.
I cherish every memory with my Valentine.  She talks to me about the things that matter, she talks to me about the journey of life and she talks to me about nothing of importance….. we just talk.
My Valentine warms my heart through memories, through her actions, through her being.
Growing up I revered her, today I honor her.  She is my friend, my confidant and my Valentine.

She is my mother…… Happy Valentine’s Day Mama!  I love and appreciate you more than you will ever know.
