First benefit concerta resounding success

I would like to personally thank everyone that helped make my benefit concert a success. I am so glad that the businesses and community supported me. A special thanks to Matthew Paul for being my master of ceremonies for the evening. A special thanks to Dan at Mid America Radio for blasting my commercials all over the radio.

Thanks to my mom for taking me seriously and supporting me from the beginning when I told her what I wanted to do and to my dad for always being my roadie and both of them for always having my back. Thanks to my meme and poppy for driving me all over to get the give-aways and auction prizes (little hard to do when your only 12).

Thanks to Jason for supporting me from the very beginning and having faith in me. Thanks to Ken at the McHale Performing Arts Center for working with me to make my benefit successful and to all of the student crew at LHS, the special lady in the box office, the janitors. Thanks so much to everyone for coming to the show, buying a ticket, purchasing auction item, donating a prize and just helping a 12-year-old make his first annual Benefit for the Emmuas a success!

Attend meeting to have your say on project

Meeting being held during working hours to stifle citizen opposition: Attention citizens of Carroll County, the commissioners, at their regularly scheduled meeting on Oct. 21 will make public the details concerning the 4-H Exhibit Building and the desires of the Flora Community Club.

I believe the citizens will be afforded an opportunity to discuss this subject prior to the signing (or at least I would hope that would be so). If you have questions or concerns, please plan to attend the meeting at 9 a.m. Oct 21 on the second floor of the courthouse.

Quite frankly, I believe this meeting should have occurred prior to the closed door meetings and the Public Private Partnership and Build Operate Transfer talks. I believe we, the owners of that building, have not been treated properly. The last time I looked around this was still America, battered and bruised, but still a country where the citizens have rights! Sadly, a country where silence is taking those rights away.
