Notes from Steve

I’m reflecting on the Fourth of July holiday. Today there is so much division and angst in this country and unfortunately, no one on either side of the aisle wants to repair the divide. I’m concerned about us and what this demonstrates to family, businesses, and our collective community culture....

Notes from Steve

Currently I have three moms working on changing a battery in my bicycle speedometer. It’s impossible for me, so I gave the job to moms. They can do anything. (Even though Jordan said “just buy a new one …”) I know my audience, and I’m not intentionally trying to suck...

Notes from Steve

The beauty is around us – we just need to open our senses and be aware. I went riding this past weekend in central Iowa, and I saw all types and colors of birds. I saw snakes and snapping turtles and squirrels. I smelled the different scents of trees and...

Notes from Steve

It was announced at the employee meeting this morning there would be an active shooting drill sometime soon. I hate this. I hate that kids have to practice what would happen if a shooter came into their school. I hate that this is our reality. What is it that would...

Thoughts from Holly

I’m next on the list! Just as Greg wrote, when I was asked to participate in writing in the Pinnacle, I also had some anxiety. However, we have a great team of Senior Leaders, and after thinking this over for a couple of days, this is a great opportunity for...
