Looking across the freshly mowed grass of Valley Home school one could easily feel the pride the 100-plus year old institution instills within our community. The sky was a beautiful blue and filled with wispy white clouds that floated with the morning breeze, the kind you feel like you could just reach up and touch. It was the day before Easter and the Valley Home 4-Hers had hidden over 600 brightly decorated eggs throughout the school yard. As the warm morning sun peeked down, you could hear the children's excited laughter as they ran from one hidden egg to ...

He was a special man who made a difference in so many lives. You could meet Mark one time and realize he would forever be your friend. He had a firm, but ...
