The Vista Bridge Advisory Committee met with Commissioner Steve Novick on Monday, July 20 at City Hall. An application has been submitted to the Federal Highway Bridge Program for funding to rehabilitate the bridge.
My dear friends.
How was your year?
Mine was very trying.
But I came out of it smelling the sweet air!
I hope you did too.
I do get concerned, though,
how you will be doing over the holidays.
So here’s what I want you to do.
Follow your heart.
I am beautiful
I am intelligent
I am healthy in mind and body
When you get depressed
Keep repeating this until you feel better
or fall asleep.
And let’s have a great 2015!
I love you!

Having a rough day? Place your hand over your heart. Feel that? That’s called purpose. You’re alive for a reason. Don’t give up.
