Griego Family, Thank You

There is absolutely no excuse for the actions of a 15-year-old boy killing his own family. This has been more than just a shocking event for our community.

Here’s to a great 2012

It’s a brand new year.  Have you taken the time to reflect on what you want in 2012?   Almost every day during the holiday break I invested time in the mornings reflecting and journaling on my accomplishments over the last 12 months and what I want out of the next 12.  One of the common things among successful people is that we become what we think about.  When we invest time thinking, pondering, journaling …
