These brave people plunged right in the cold water at the outdoor pool at the Jimmy Floyd Family Center on Saturday for the 11th annual Polar Bear Plunge which benefits the Wilson County Special Olympics. “The Polar Bear Plunge was terrific,” said Cindy Baker, aquatics director at the JFFC. “We had about 52 plungers, and the water was a mere 36 degrees. We still had ice in the pool,” she said, adding the large block of ice was floating near the pool’s center. That did not matter, however, to participants, because, Baker noted, “they didn’t stay in the water very long.” Mayor Philip Craighead, who could not attend the event, called early Saturday and told Baker the water was not cold enough this year and he would be back participating at the 2011 Plunge. Actually, she said, Craighead was away on a youth retreat with his church. “We gave him a bye on this one,” Baker said and laughed. The plungers were led by JFFC Director Tim Hill who has plunged really fast into the water all 11 years the event has been held locally. The event raised more than $4,000. “We are thrilled and still have some donations coming in,” she added. Photo by Chuck Thompson / www.tntsportspics.com

St. Stephen’s medical mission trip to Haiti postponed after earthquake
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
It would’ve been their eighth medical mission to Haiti, but the earthquake has postponed this year’s trip for a team based at St. Stephen’s Catholic Community. The St. Stephen’s Medical Mission team was set to leave on Saturday, January 16, with 80 duffel bags of supplies to treat the impoverished people of Haiti, just as they have every January for the past several years, said Mission team member Mike Swafford on Tuesday. The church has been involved in the PetitGoave community in Haiti, some 50 miles west of PortAu-Prince, for over 30 years and has a sister parish, Notre Dame de L’Assomption, there. But on Tuesday, January 12, a magnitude-7.0 earthquake rocked the tiny country, which is already considered the poorest in the Western Hemisphere. It is one of the poorest and least developed, with those who are working earning around $500 USD per year, said Swafford, who was in Haiti last month on a water purification mission. “They don’t treat their water there,” Swafford said. “If they drink the water they will get worms, and there is E. Coli in the tap water.” The Medical Mission team, consisting of 31 members ranging from doctors and nurses to dentists and assistants, sets up several clinics in Petit-Goave and treats the Haitian people for whatever is needed: from worms to scabies to injuries, immunizations, dental treatment and internal infections. “The first year, we had a father who carried his son down from the mountain to be treated,” Swafford shared on Tuesday. “The boy was just about dead – his internal organs were shutting down. We (the Medical Mission

Renae Timberlake with the St. Stephen’s Catholic Community Medical Mission team gives administers a shot to a visitor at the clinic in Petit-Goave, Haiti, which was devastated by a magnitude7.0 earthquake last week. An estimated death toll of around 200,000 people has been reported, with more missing and countries around the world donating funds and traveling to the impoverished country to help. ~ Photos submitted by Mike Swafford team) always carry IVs for ourselves in case of emergency, but everyone gave up their IVs for him. He still comes to see us every year.” Swafford also offered the story of a man who came to their medical station the first year with an injury in which gangrene had set up. Under typical Haitian circumstances – in which common medicines cost just as much there as they do here, except the people have a fraction of the income - the man most likely would have lost his leg to the infection. But the Medical Mission team scraped the infection, Swafford said, and the man visited the clinic the next year with his leg intact. Swafford runs the eye clinic, where he said his team outfits Haitians with reading glasses and tries to provide proper prescriptions to the impoverished people with glasses donated by the local Lion’s Club. He said at this point he guesses it will be months before the team can get back to Haiti to help. “We will proceed with the trip when the time is right, whenever that time may be; we have before and we will again,” commented Father Pat Kibby on the St. Stephen’s website, www. saintstephencommunity. com. “Our relationship with the parish of Notre Dame in Petite Goave is long. We’ve been twinned for over 30 years and that bond has not been broken.” Swafford said his group has had “very little contact” with their people in Petit Goave, but that their church there has collapsed. It was around 200 years old, Swafford said. “We don’t know if there was anyone in it at the time,” he said, “but Petite Goave was devastated severely as well. The roads between Port-Au-Prince and Petite Goave were impassable. They may be better now, but we’re just not sure.” Swafford added that Father Kibby has said that now the medical mission “will be expanded to a construction mission” when the team does get to return to Haiti. Swafford added that he has been in touch with the Mt. Juliet Noon Rotary Club about donating when the time comes to return.

Federal lawsuit filed by former MJ employee settled for $35K
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
Just weeks before the trial was scheduled to begin in Federal court, a lawsuit filed against the City of Mt. Juliet by a former employee has been settled, and the plaintiff said Tuesday she is relieved and happy. Kathryn Reitz filed an internal sexual harassment complaint in 2007 and on Tuesday confirmed that she had filed “internal grievances” to the City as far back as 1997 for sexual harassment, working in an unsafe work environment, and retaliation. She had complained about the “assault” of her friend and co-worker Bobbie McDonald, who also filed suit against the City, which was dismissed last year. Reitz said that once she filed the complaints she was the target of retaliation and harassment. Reitz sued the City for $750,000 but has settled, according to a resolution approved Monday night by the Mt. Juliet city commission, for $35,000 and an additional $2,500 in attorney’s fees for Richard reason the case has taken so long was because she and McDonald “had really bad attorneys.” She said that her case was almost “thrown out” before Braun, a civil rights attorney, “stepped in” to help and after -- Former City employee Kathy Reitz Reitz wrote letters appealing back to August.” She said to Federal Judge Aleta just didn’t want to put her Trauger. “I’m happy with the family through any more stress and “harassment” settlement and will receive a than they have experienced check upon the final approval in the past several years. of the city commission,” Reitz was terminated during Reitz said Tuesday, adding the process of the lawsuit. that she had to agree “never Reitz said part of the to sue anyone up there (at J. Braun and Joseph A. Davidow. She said Tuesday that the trial “could’ve taken years,” and that rumor had it the trial “had been bumped the City) ever again, or their family members, past or present.” Reitz said she “wasn’t doing it for the money” and is relieved the matter is settled. She said she and her family “eventually” want to sell their home and move, start over. “We’ve got to rebuild, regroup and figure out what to do next,” she said. At a special meeting on Friday, January 15, the commissioners voted 4 – 1 to approve the resolution to pay the total of $37,500.00 for the Reitz settlement, with Mayor Linda Elam voting against it.

“We’ve got to rebuild, regroup and figure out what to do next.”

Who’s that knocking on your door?
MJPD: Beware of Census scams
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
It’s Federal Census time again, and as with many wide-spread, doorto-door endeavors there are people out there who prey on others, and the Mt. Juliet Police Department is working to be proactive and warn prior to providing info.” Chandler noted that “if a U.S. Census worker knocks on your door, they will have an identification badge, a handled device, a Census Bureau canvas bag, and a confidentiality notice.” “It is always good practice to ask for their identification before answering any questions. Do not give your Social Security number, credit card or banking at (615) 754-2550. Please provide a detailed description of the individual and location to the dispatcher. An officer will be sent to the location to locate and identify the individual. For frequently asked questions regarding the Census, visit www.census. gov for other details.

local residents before it happens here. MJPD Chief Andy Garrett said Monday that he isn’t aware of any individuals who had been scammed as of this week, but MJPD Cpl. Tyler Chandler used the City’s Nixle network to issue a warning about possible Census scams on Friday, January 15. “MJ residents should be aware of possible Census scams. Always properly ID and confirm they are a Census worker. The nationwide U.S. Census is underway to ensure everyone is counted. However, there are individuals who are using this opportunity to impersonate and commit scams. Mt. Juliet residents should be aware of possible Census scams and should properly ID census workers

information to anyone, even if they claim they need it for the U.S. Census. The Census Bureau will not ask for Social Security, bank account or credit card numbers, nor will employees solicit donations. Anyone asking for that information is not with the Census Bureau.” In addition, the Census Bureau will not be contacting you by email, so be on the lookout for email scams impersonating the Census. Never click on a link or open any attachments in an Email that are supposedly from the U.S. Census Bureau. “Following different news reports, there have been occurrences of this in Tennessee and across the nation,” Chandler added Monday. Anyone who feels suspicious about a possible Census impersonator should call the police department

Mt. Juliet eye doctors celebrate 20 years in the community
Special to The Chronicle
Twenty years ago two brothers, Dr. Mike Davis and Dr. Pete Davis, put down roots here in Mount Juliet, TN and began serving the eye care needs of our citizens and those in surrounding communities with their family eye care practice, Mount Juliet Family Vision Center. Originally located in the Dogwood Medical Center, Doctors Davis and Davis moved their practice in 1999 down the street to 830 Mount Juliet Road North, just across the street from West Wilson Middle School and Mount Juliet Christian Academy. Each doctor received their undergraduate B.A. Degrees from Maryville College in Maryville, TN and their B.S. Degrees and Doctor of Optometry degrees from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN. Both doctors have full diagnostic and therapeutic licensure allowing them to diagnose and treat eye diseases. Mount Juliet Family Vision Center uniquely offers a wide array of Optometric services including, diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, lasik evaluations, sports vision, vision of the elderly, with specialty services in contact lenses and pediatric vision. They are also certified to co-manage lasik surgery, cataract surgeries and more. Even after twenty years in practice, Dr. Mike and Dr. Pete Davis are very unique in the way they deliver eye care. Their comprehensive exams do NOT include the use of technicians; the entire exam is thoroughly performed by each doctor. Additionally, Mount Juliet Family Vision Center offers a large optical dispensary offering hundreds of fashionable eye glass frames for all ages and occupations. Their large

Before moving to Mount Juliet, Dr. Mike Davis practiced in Knoxville, TN where he was an associate with Campbell, McCoy and Campbell P.C. at the East Tennessee Regional Eye Center. Dr. Pete Davis, one of the few certified Pediatric Optometrists in Middle Tennessee, completed a Pediatric Residency and served as a Clinical Instructor in Primary Care Optometry for all ages at Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN. While Dr. Pete enjoys seeing patients of all ages, children’s eye care remains his primary focus. Doctors Davis and Davis are very fortunate to have a wonderful and caring staff. Kathy Hall has served as Office Manager for the past 15 years, LeeAnn Madewell is their insurance coordinator and Stephanie Byrd serves as their receptionist. Twenty years ago, doctors Mike and Pete Davis chose to set up their practice in Mount Juliet, TN because of its small town atmosphere. “The people here are warm and friendly and it’s also a great place to raise children. We knew we wanted to establish our practice here and plant roots right from the start,” says Dr. Mike Davis. The two doctors wanted to become involved in community activities by serving on the Board of the Chamber of Commerce, volunteering services during school eye screenings, lecturing at elementary schools, donating and building playground equipment for Planet Playground at Charlie Daniels Park and much more. “We couldn’t be more pleased that Mount Juliet welcomed us so graciously 20 years ago and we are proud to continue to service our community. We’d like to say ‘thank you’ to everyone,” Dr. Pete Davis comments, “We look forward to another 20 year of making new friends.”

Local pilot turns beloved hobby into a way of life
Special to The Chronicle
Ryan Mudry said he’s lucky. After becoming interested in aviation as a young boy, he became surrounded by people who helped him maintain that interest. Ken Poley of EAA Chapter 863 in Lebanon invited the young Mudry to chapter meetings and gave him his Young Eagle rides, as well as subsequent rides in his Luscombe 8F. While the two flew, they also talked. Poley, a retired Air Force officer, told lots of stories about his career, and Mudry took those stories to heart. “It sounded like something I might like to do,” Mudry said. “Then I found out about the US Air Force Academy, and decided to go there.” But in between, Mudry did more. The chapter sent him to the EAA Air Academy one summer, and he soloed a couple days after his 16th birthday. “The weather was bad on my birthday,” he explained. “The same thing happened on my 17th birthday, when I could finally get my license.” After graduating in 2005 from Father Ryan High School in Nashville, Mudry attended the academy. He graduated on May 27, 2009, with a bachelor’s degree in biology and physics, and he was commissioned as a 2nd lieutenant. Poley traveled to the academy to administer Mudry’s commissioning oath at graduation. In July, Mudry went to Japan, where he collaborated on nuclear physics and solar activity experiments. Next, he is reporting for pilot training in Florida with the US Navy. While Mudry is looking forward to his future, he is also appreciative of what Chapter 863 did for him. “They were always supportive of what I wanted

to do,” Mudry said. “In fact, I’ve flown in most of the members’ airplanes. I basically grew up at chapter meetings and events and learned from their flying experiences and careers.” Mudry has also given back to the program that has given his so much. “Since I got my license, I’ve flown a few kids myself,” he said. “That means a lot to me to pay it forward.” Ryan is the son of Karen and John Mudry of Mt. Juliet.

What you don’t know about MJ Chamber President Mark Hinesley: a profile
with almost no unhappy customers; even if we can’t or don’t know how to help, we can almost always help them find someone who can. It’s a dream job! What do you dislike the most? Probably the fact that sometimes there just isn’t enough time to help everyone in need. If you could have any job, besides this one, that you wanted, what would that be? I really enjoy being a basketball referee; either that or a motivational consultant to others in the Chamber Industry. Okay, now onto some fun stuff: Tell me about your family: I am very happily married to Tonya (Richards). I have two daughters; Jillian (Freshman at MTSU), Stefanie (Freshman at Pope John Paul II) and two bonus sons; Shaee (Flatt), a Junior at MJHS, and Parker (Flatt), a Sophomore at MJHS. My mother Rose Ann now lives in MJ. Tonya was born and raised here, graduated from MJHS and has a very large extended family. I regularly get to meet new people I am now related to; it’s wonderful! What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work? I really enjoy spending time with friends and family. Where would your ideal vacation be, and what would you do? If Tonya and I could return to St Croix in the US Virgin Islands. We love to eat, shop, relax on an isolated beach, and explore the rain forest. What’s your favorite color? I really like animal prints; something in a leopard or tiger pattern is pretty darn good looking. Word? Either Please or Thank You; Being nice is always best. Sound? It hard to beat the sound of gentle waves lapping against the rocks on a deserted beach. Food? I love eating Ribs and Tonya’s home-cooking is the BEST EVER! If you could choose a theme song for your life right now, what would it be? A young family, a beautiful bride of only 3 1/2 years, a growing community and a job with an incredible future; it would probably be “We’ve Only Just Begun.” If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Imagine how many free movies I could go to if I were invisible...but that “flying” thing would be pretty cool too. What did you want to be when you were 12 years old? Believe it or not I wanted to be a Geologist. My father worked in a stone quarry and I had the best rock collection in town. What motivates you? Being around positive, enthusiastic people all working together to accomplish worthwhile goals. What is the most fun thing you’ve done at your job? There is tremendous satisfaction that comes with looking into the Chamber of Commerce Crystal Ball, seeing a need or opportunity in the community, and then working to help make it happen. If you could live in any decade, or era, besides right now, what would it be and why? If you’ve ever seen Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour in the movie “Somewhere in Time” filmed at the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island, I would have loved to have gotten to wear those clothes...and that hat he wore!

The following is part of an ongoing series in which The Chronicle gets to know some of our local leaders. It’s meant to be a fun, informative look into some of the individuals who work to make our community the fantastic place it is to live. ~ tomi What is your profession, and how long have you been there? President/CEO of the Mt. Juliet/West Wilson Chamber of Commerce. Started in December, 1998 What made you choose this job? For the chance to work in a profession which places a tremendous value on helping people and genuine love for this community and all of the people who make it so special. What sort of background in this field do you have – and what is your background, professionally, in general? When I started, I had no experience. I believe it is my experience as a small business owner that helped me identify with the issues and opportunities facing business owners. What do you love about your job? Nearly every single call or conversation ends with “thanks so much; I’m glad I called the Chamber.” Imagine working at a place

MJHS girls skirt past LHS
By Tommy Bryan Special to The Chronicle
LEBANON -- You just knew Teraes Clemmons was going to take the last shot in Mt. Juliet’s thrilling 46-45 win over Lebanon Friday, Jan. 15 at jam-packed Campbell Brandon Gym. Held to two points in the first half, Clemmons scored a dozen after intermission, including the game-winner with :07 left in regulation -- a smooth 15-footer from the right wing with an LHS Juliet with 15 points, including three 3-pointers. Clemmons finished with 14 and Vaughn Cornelia had nine from the paint. Lebanon was led by 17 from senior Ryan Beadle, who knocked down two 3pointers and calmly went 6-for-6 at the line in the late stages of regulation. Justin Bridges had seven, including a pair of deep 3-pointers while Vance had two 3-pointers for six. Justin Manning had six, Cameron High five and Case Sloan four for the tough-luck Blue Devils (girls)

LEBANON -- Mt. Juliet’s Caya Williams (52) clears a rebound against Lebanon’s Marissa Jennings during Friday’s 59-30 victory over the Devilettes. Ranked No. 3 in the state, Mt. Juliet improved to 171 overall with the win and 6-0 in District 9AAA. Williams finished with 14 points. Richie Bouton / The Wilson Post

Blue Devil Phillip Vance managed to get off a shot from the deep corner just before the buzzer, but missed as the Bears escaped with the victory. “Man, can you believe the atmosphere,” said MJ coach Troy Allen, “this is what it’s all about -- two teams playing with great heart and energy.” Mt. Juliet improved to 14-3 overall and 5-1 in District 9AAA with the win. Lebanon slipped to 99 / 1-4 with the loss. “I can’t fault my kids,” LHS coach Doug Keil said after the game, “they played so hard. We had a stretch there of about four minutes when we didn’t play very smart, but our effort was outstanding all night.” Soph Caleb Chowbay paced Mt. Mt. Juliet 59, Lebanon 30 Mt. Juliet’s No. 3ranked Lady Bears ran out to a 12-0 lead and never looked back in a 59-30 win over Lebanon in Friday’s opener. Mt.

Lebanon fell to 125 / 3-2 in league play. “We had a very good night shooting the ball,” MJ coach Chris Fryer said, “this bunch has good chemistry and tonight we really played well.” Caya William had 14 and Britt Bell 12 for the winners. LHS was led by Britnie McDannald with seven and Victoria Dye with six. Mt. Juliet hosts Station Camp Friday night.

The Fair also won numerous awards in the convention showcases. According to information provided by Fair representatives: “Over 18 new features added to the excitement and participation at this fair last year . . . and 17 major improvements. With 766 volunteers contributing over 51,000 hours, this fair strives to offer everyone an experience to enjoy country things and simple pleasures that county fairs have to offer.” The fair saw increases in exhibitors of beef, dairy, sheep, swine, mules and draft horses, goats, and a large increase in poultry and rabbits. This was an increase of 17 percent more agricultural exhibits, and a 26 percent increase in individuals exhibiting agriculture. Live demonstrations included cooking, lye soap, salsa making, cornmeal and hominy, molasses, country ham, and open fire cooking. Others include weaving, metal working, blacksmith, sawmill, and woodworking. “This fair feels they are made up of a diverse group of civic and community minded volunteers ranging from teachers and farmers, to accountants and businesspeople, who use their knowledge, enthusiasm, time, talents and involvement to help develop and grow new ideas at their fair,” commented Tennessee Agricultural Commissioner Ken Givens. Many new improvements were made, Givens noted: paving, new ticket booth, sod, concrete, and the Master Gardeners began seven educational gardens, and plans for more are begun for next year. “The fair’s success,” Givens said, “is bringing people together and making them smile.” New features include a Grist Mill, an original cobbler shop from around 1883 for the Fiddlers Grove Village, barrel races, 4-H state dairy judging, banana derby, shutterbug contests, and much more.

Ashley Charest is a senior at Mt. Juliet High School in Mt. Juliet. She plans to attend Columbia University in New York on her way to becoming a neurosurgeon. Ashley has acquired top honors in high school and this past summer she decided to broaden her science background by volunteering to do research in the laboratory of Dr. Donald Alcendor PhD. Dr. Alcendor is an assistant professor in Meharry’s Center for AIDS Health Disparities Research. The Center is a state of the art research facility directed by Dr. James Hildreth MD., PhD. The center is funded by grants from National Institutes of Health and its mission to address the disproportionate HIV infection rates among minority populations. As a senior in high school Ashley had no experience working in a research laboratory but with a solid background in biology, she committed herself for 8 weeks of intense training in the fundamentals of cell culture, advanced microscopy and molecular biology. She often had homework assignments related to her summer project. Dr. Alcendor said that she displayed a kind of passion, discipline, and attention to detail that is a high school student and raised many interesting questions that made him realize that she was an exceptional student with enormous potential. Ashley’s summer project focused on ongoing research in Dr. Alcendor’s laboratory involving the development of congenital disease in children caused by a virus that infect the mother during pregnancy. Her project was designed to better understand the expression of cellular genes that are altered in the brain of a developing fetus that is infected in its mother womb. The research focused on a cell type in the brain called a “pericyte”. Pericyte are specialized cells in the brain that help to create a barrier that protects the brain from infection by microorganisms including viruses. Ashley’s work provided important insight into the infection of pericytes by viruses and helped to identify several genes that were altered in expression in pericyles after virus infection. Dr Alcendor believes that Ashley will succeed at whatever she decides to do and hopes to get more students like her. He thinks that she the intellect and the character traits of an outstanding future academy professional and he is confident that she represents the very best of the developing talent pool pursing a career in medicine. Ashley was invited to Meharry Medical College with her class on behalf of Mr. Walter Braden, Senior Teaching Assistant of Professional Medical Education and Integrated Didactics. Braden has a structured program in conjunction with Henry Atwater, Director of Student Services where students from the surrounding high schools are invited to tour Meharry’s campus in order to see if are interested in enrolling in medical school. Approximately 245 students toured the campus in 2008 and 209 respectively. The department is looking forward to approximately 200 students in 2010.

From staff reports Doyle A. Wood has joined the Chronicle team in the position of sales manager, beginning on Monday, January 18. Wood, a Mt. Juliet resident since 1986, most recently was employed at the new Mt. Juliet WalMart in customer services. He has a BS from Belmont College and a Masters degree from Middle Tennessee State University. He started his career as counselor for delinquent youth with State of Tennessee, then worked for the US Department of Justice in Atlanta Georgia for two years before being transferred to Washington DC for a nine year period. He returned to Tennessee in 1986 to serve as Commissioner of Youth Services for the State. He was then a Senior Associate, then President, of Community Research Associates, Inc. from 1990 to 2005. CRA is a national scope firm providing training and technical assistance for the Federal, state and local entities in the area of criminal justice, juvenile justice, public safety and domestic terrorism with offices in Nashville, Champaign IL and Alexandria VA. Doyle then sold his interest in CRA and semi-retired. He owned and managed the Eagle Roost Smokehouse & Grill -a unique BBQ, steak & pizza restaurant with seating for 100 people in Eagleville, TN. Economic times required me to closed the restaurant in July 2009. Wood has been married for 39 years to his “adorable” wife Linda, an employee at Wilson Bank & Trust.

Juliet looks forward to getting the Chronicle on Wednesday to see what’s happening in the area,” Wood said. “Without a doubt Mt. Juliet is now the place to live, shop and eat in middle Tennessee. The best way for everyone to know about the great services, food, products and items offered by Mt. Juliet businesses is to go to the number one source of information, news and advertising for the Mt. Juliet area - The Chronicle of Mt. Juliet. I hope to expand the advertising services so all residents of Mt.

A nurse named Rosemary listens to the heart of a child in Petit-Goave, Haiti, which was devastated by a magnitude-7.0 earthquake last week.

Reflections from an Old Friend

Well the weather has really been something over the last several months. We had higher than normal rainfall over the summer. As a result many areas saw flooding for the first time in many years. The flooding was so bad in many areas that FEMA was even consulted on many occasions. Thankfully many of the people that received flooding had great friends and family that could help them clean up and repair any damage that was caused as a result of the flooding. As the heavy rains of the summer faded the treasured football season began for many fans. Many football games have been recently decided by nothing more than a field goal. With winter now in full swing many states have seen below normal freezing temperatures which have resulted in frozen football fields and many frozen pipes for weary homeowners. As I recently reflected about the summer flooding and recent deep freeze crossing our wonderful country, I began to think about life and the many things we either enjoy or deal with in our lives. For some reason I thought about the letter F and how often it is used in the English Language. I had always dreaded F’s in school and really didn’t care too much for them. But the more I thought about the F the more I began to realize how important and precious the F is. For example: without the letter F we wouldn’t be able to spell words such as Future, Fun, Fast, First, Food, Fuel, Flight, and Football. All words we really like. But the more I thought about the letter F the more I thought about Faith, Family and Friends. Without those three words the rest of the letters that begin with the letter F really don’t mean as much. In other words always have Faith, Family and Friends in your life. Unless we take time to realize what life is all about, it will be very difficult to truly enjoy and appreciate it. Getting an F isn’t always a bad thing. I now truly understand how precious the letter F is. Without it I would be hard pressed to understand how blessed I am to have Faith, Family and Friends in my life.
