"An Editorial Comment By: B.A. Ellis..."



Upon careful review of the newspaper last evening, I noted that there were no less than twenty obituaries listed therein. That in and of it's self is of no reason to be a major concern to me, in that, I knew none of these persons who were listed there as having died.

Who of us can ever forget that terrible Tuesday morning of Sept 11th, 2001? I was not yet a firefighter at that time, and had not even ever really thought of becoming one, But looking back, I think perhaps, it was a seed, one of many, planted in my heart, that played a role in my becoming a firefighter.
