The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put Born in the U.S.A. or The River down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, lets face it, the man rocks.

Department Director of Clinical Services; Carrie Boelens, Community Health
Educator; and Bethany Stapel, Health Department Intern attended the

health care, surveillance, epidemiology, mental health, chronic disease,
agriculture and education."

to understand and analyze trends and developments in the field of rural
public health through lectures, exercises, discussion and professional
networking. In addition, this conference provided our Health Department
staff with important information that will give us great insight in
continuing our goal of better serving the residents of Henry and Stark
County."
