I have not abandoned the blog! There are too many questions to be answered and issues to resolve, even if only for my own peace of mind. I have a number of concerns about the direction the town has been going and feel that there may be the need for either mitigation or intervention of some type. For my next post I'll try to outline the issues I see, along with the lack of vision under which I feel town government is currently operating.
I will be happy just to get through this month. To give you an idea what it's been like since mid-October: re-election campaign, birth of a new grand-daughter, planning and implementation of a major network project at the office, council meetings, committee meetings, and a Working Dog Association Shutzhund Trial. Besides the normal work week, from October 20 through November 18 I have been on the road each Saturday and Sunday either to Pungo, Va or Wilmington, NC. This hasn't left much time or opportunity for Fire/Rescue attendance or blogging.
