I have a secret. Only my uber-close friends know about it and still they donâ€™t accept it. Some of you have the same secret. I thought I could keep it forever but working at Hospice has taught me itâ€™s time to share it.
Iâ€™m not actively dying but Iâ€™m not actively living either. I can make myself appear busy and Lord knows I can speak how busy I am. Thatâ€™s not part of the secret. Thatâ€™s part of the lie. We lie to ourselves more often than we tell ourselves the truth. Thatâ€™s why weâ€™re a universe of people with struggles. We believe the lies and discard the truths.
TOWER CITY â€“ Tower Cityâ€™s park continues to benefit from grants that help the public facility to keep growing.
Scott Tichy, a member of the Tower City Park Board, said Thursday two years ago the park received a 50/50 matching state recreational facility grant that allowed the park board to put in a new playground.
About two weeks ago, the park board finished putting in a 1,200 foot walking path around the park it built with a 2011 national recreational trails grant.
A man was jailed in Valley City on Wednesday on suspicion of violating a restraining order against him.
