Staying Connected

Stay Connected : Continued Unconditional Love & Respect

Seeing beautiful functional buildings being tore to the ground with bricks and lumber being sent to the dump, why?

Stay Connected : Slippery Roads

Freezing rain. Melting snow that suddenly freezes. Snow covered roads. Any one, any combination, or all of these situations can lead to slippery road. Sometimes we don’t realize roads are slippery until that first fishtail.

Stay Connected : Tracks In The Snow

Snow time is here and we can once again follow the tracks in the snow.

Drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. More than 63,600 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2016. This is more than car accidents and gun homicides combined. In fact overdose is the leading cause of death for Americans under 50.

The U.S. is in the midst of an opioid overdose epidemic with every American state, county, socio-economic and ethnic group impacted. Opioids killed more than 42,000 people in 2016, representing 66% of all overdose deaths.
