I’ve got a good friend I’ve known most all of my life who is dealing with a loved one who is abusing substances. She told me about this about a year ago, but it has recently gotten worse, and this person is now going away to get clean. My friend...

I’m looking out my window right now. A Clarion resident has been on a quest as of late. He’s walking for his health, day in and day out – rain or shine. He doesn’t know it, but he is motivating a lot of people … and we are cheering him...

Notes from Steve

A friend had a house band party in Des Moines last Saturday night. There were two 45 minutes sets by the band and then a couple of breaks. We all brought cool beer and wine plus a snack to share. It was like a hipster potluck – I was smiling...

“All good men and women must take responsibility to create legacies that will take the next generation to a level we could only imagine.” ~ Jim Rohn As I reflect on Dr. Whitters’ retirement parties last week, I can’t help but think what an incredible testament to a true leader....
