County offers fitting tribute (02/28/10)
Sometimes, it takes a violent shock to jolt one back on the track of life. In my case, this past week was that violent shock. Although I didn't know Marine Cpl. Gregory Scott Stultz, I wish I had.

To his family, I want to say I know what you are feeling as another war, long ago, took someone I cared about deeply and (Wednesday), I felt again the loss of a fallen hero...
