NW Scott VFD weekly news update
Okay first off let say that I have had some family issues that flared up in the last few weeks so I havenít had a chance to write the article. The thing about family is that they are for life for better or worst. There comes a time in a personís life when you have to let that someone live out their choice in life whether it is bad or good and be there for them to fall back on. But on the other hand the youth today are totally different than all the generations before.



Worth to Live
We came to this world not by choice. But since we are here now, we have uncounted choices to choose from how, where, what, and why to live our lives. We all know and understand fully that life is not easy to live, but itís not that difficult either if we generally know more or less how to live our lives.

The Forester Herald 50 Year Tribute
The Herald congratulates Judge Bill Wilson on receiving this tribute and sure all his Forester friends agree. (We still call him Billy Roy). He and I had an agreement not long ago, via E-mail, about our growing up years at Forester and how much we appreciate those years for the basic learning, family values, and the all around feeling that, "everyone counts," that we received there. His parents and all the Forester Folks would be "mighty" proud of BRW.
