This weekend, as we reflect on and close out 2023, I hope everyone had a safe, healthy and meaningful holiday season that will carry on through this New Years weekend festivities.

My wish for you all is that 2024 be a year that dreams come true, hard work reaps great results and rewards, you stay safe and healthy and that your family and friends keep you company.

For those who are standing a watch this weekend, military or public servant, our thoughts and prayers are with you all………

Let me close the year with this quote from Benjamin Franklin;

”Be at War with your Vices, at Peace with your Neighbors, and let every New-Year find you a better Man.”

Now here are the news stories for the last time in 2023…

Be safe this weekend, we all know what happens on New Years Eve!
