Good morning, Waukee. Looks like it's going to be a warm one. Don't forget, if you have school age kids, today is the last early dismissal day of the 2011-12 school year. Enjoy it while you can. Summer break will be here before you know it.
Speaking of summer, has anyone noticed how ridiculously dry everything is right now? I broke down and turned the sprinklers on yesterday just to give the lawn a hose down. I'd prefer the grass stay green for at least another month.
I hope you read the about Waukee's own Levi Rosol and the website he and his business partner, James Eliason, created called Goodsmiths. I love it for the fact that it's sort of a David and Goliath story with these two, regular guys taking on a project that could really make a big difference to the small business person. I can totally get behind that.
Also this morning, we told you about the mother/daughter duo who won $250 in our tribute to moms contest. Mandy and Jeanne McWherter's touching story had me tearing up. Read their story .
Speaking of contests, we have a couple you should really consider entering. and you could win $500 toward the charity of your choice. Also, if you know someone who deserves to be recognized for their volunteer efforts or someone who's truly a good neighbor, enter them for a shot at winning .
Oh, and if you haven't already, go and vote for your favorite dentist in Patch's . Walnut Hills Pediatric Dentistry is currently in the lead.
One last thing, are you having a garage sale this weekend? There's still time to get your sale in our garage sale listings. They post Thursday morning at 6 a.m. If you're having a sale and you want it included, send me your address, dates and times of your sale and a couple items you're selling to firstname.lastname@example.org.
With that, I say good morning to you and have a great day, Waukee!
