I would like to personally thank all of the Preston Area Chamber of Commerce committee members involved in putting together the first-ever CMA Mudracing Event and Big Boy Toy Show. Froma everyone I have talked to, it was an undeniable success.

With a one-day event like this, it takes months and months of planning, coordination, weekly meetings and a sincere commitment to be a part of something that is bigger than yourself. There were so many people who gave their time, energy, money and resources to pull this together -- all voluntary.

Making a difference

Whether from Spring Valley to Rushford, or from Chatfield to Canton, the communities in Fillmore County are well-supported with talented, dedicated volunteers all working for the common good. These selfless individuals find ways to bring people together, and that attracts an audience far and wide. It's an honor to be in such good company.

We were strangers, too

Even before Tony Hayward, the embattled CEO of BP, appeared in front of a House investigative subcommittee on June 17, everyone knew why he was there. It was not to apologize for the Gulf oil spill or to explain his company's behavior - though all o .....
