Friday, Nov. 11, “was the 51st Veterans Day that I have commemorated as an American military veteran. I have to confess that it hasn’t always been celebratory. It hasn’t always been easy.”
The voters have spoken. The election is over, and it is time to move forward. Whether your candidate won or lost, or you are happy are angry about issues, levies and bonds … look ahead not back. That is what makes our country great and helps sustain a thriving republic.
Depending on how many pages we publish each week, you’ll typically find somewhere in the neighborhood of 85,000 words in any given issue of the Chagrin Valley Times, Solon Times, or Geauga Times Courier.
