Washington Continues to Discuss the Possibility of Extending its Boundaries

The city of Washington continues to discuss the possibility of extending its boundaries. Officials are hearing comments on both sides of the annexation issue. The administration committee gathered on Monday November 26, 2012 to talk about the annexation of land to the east, south, and west of the existing city limits. Much of it is agricultural ground and Mayor Sandy Lucy says that some citizens have expressed concerns about hunting rights in some of those areas. Mayor Lucy says she has looked at ordnance currently on the books in Wildwood which has a lot of incorporated open space. Another concern centered around fireworks stands and whether they will be aloud. Lucy says officials are looking into that issue as well. More meetings are planned. The earliest annexation proposal could go before voters in August.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
