Congratulations to the fine middle school students who participated in our Memorial Day Essay Contest this month!  We will be posting their winning essays on our website today.  Thank you to the Wadsworth Young Professionals Association who had me in for a "Mentors & Mochas" activity this week.  You can get more information on their organization at the Wadsworth Chamber link to the left.

I hope you enjoy Memorial Day weekend.  Please take a moment at some time this weekend to stop and consider the tremendous sacrifice of all our veterans who have given their lives for their country.  Their losses have shattered lives and families and created wounds that can never be healed.....but they can be remembered.  Take a moment to do so this weekend.  All the best! 

Mike Kovack

There is no pain greater than the loss of a comrade on the battle field and to this day, the remembrance of it brings tears to my eyes, though I fight them back fiercely.
