Read Their Opinions Here

     Airport aerial photo taken by Bob Walter in 2014- plane piloted by  Steve Van Cleve. The buildings on the right are hangers built years ago. According to the Federal Aviation Administration. (FAA) the hangers are too high for an airport according to the Federal Aviation Regulations ( FARs), rules prescribed by the Federal Aviation Administration governing all aviation activities in the United States. The hangers now have small red lights on the corners as a warning to pilots.

Your Moment of Beauty

      November 6, 2017: We bought this tree when it was so small Bob had to put a fence around it to protect from the deer in our neighborhood. They really, really were drawn to it like kids to candy. We have watched it grow until it became magnificent. Here it is in all its fall glory.
      Lucy Larcum said it well in her poem Plant a Tree, "He who plants a tree plants a hope..." We believe she's right.

Moment of Beauty Gone Until Spring

     And here it is prepared for winter, bare and sleeping until spring. The tree was more prepared for this unexpected and heavy snow last weekend. (photos by Bob Walter)
