Bob’s departure means that the County Press now has an opening for a reporter to cover Taylors Falls City Council meetings. If you love to write and have an interest in local government, I would urge you to call the Press at 257-5115. You will need to attend regularly and submit your article by the next day. Call Matt or Denise for details.
If you are looking for something to break up your week this summer, I have just the ticket for you. Lindstrom has started its Harmony in the Park Concert Series for the upcoming summer. Held at the beautiful band shelter in Lions Park, every wednesday will feature a different musical artist. The city and the Lions have done an amazing job with the park getting it ready for you and yours to enjoy. Next week the dixieland band Barbary Coast will be the featured band. Be sure to check the schedule in each week right here in the County Press.
The brain wizards have come up with another million dollar idea. It seems they have invented a ultra-high pitch ring tone for the younger generation. This high frequency apparently cannot be heard by most adults. They say it will be perfect for phone users in “cell phones off” areas. It can also alert them if say another friend that is supposed to be learning in another class wants to text message them. Just what our children need, another chance to be inattentive. Isn’t technology wonderful?
This Sunday is Father’s Day. Be sure to tell your dad how much he means to you. Dads, believe it or not, the way you act around your children, even the smallest of things, directly impacts how they will act as they grow. Being a father is a huge responsibility as well as the greatest reward in the world. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Father’s Day!
