… Still no delays to report on Beaver Island.

Hey, let’s be careful out there. Especially in the school zone.

To Lucas and all our listeners, Washington Irving once said, “Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune; but great minds rise above it.”

On a lighter note, what kind of car does a Jedi drive? A toy-yoda!!!
