Comings and Goings at American Fork and Beyond (Random Style):
- The Annual Mary Kawakami Speech Contest in American Fork was held Saturday. Click here for more information. A wonderful event to be sure.
- City Elections for three (3) A.F. City Council Seats are up for Tuesday's General Election. Names on the ballot are: Marc J. Ellison, Brad Frost, Robert Shelton, Ricky K. Storrs*, Clark P. Taylor and Scott E. Twitchell, *incumbent. City Government is that body that is closest to the people and provides essential services. Please get out and vote in A.F. or your community if you haven't voted early.
- Veteran's Day Service in A. F. will be Friday 11-11-11 at 11am at the Alpine Tabernacle at 100 E. Main. (venue subject to change)
- BYU Football QBs - Moving outside the city confines; is it Riley Nelson or Jake Heaps? Well that's been settled for now, it's Riley (per Cougar Coaches). Both QBs bring strengths and both will be needed to win out and either take on Southern Methodist or Southern Miss in the Armed Forces Bowl on Dec 30 in Fort Worth, Texas.
- LSU is #1 in the BCS Standings! I graduated from the LSU Law Center, married a Loooziana girl and all four (4) of my children were born in the same Women's Hospital in Baton Rouge; sooooo needless to say the big victories over Oregon, Auburn, Florida and recently #2 Alabama were cause to celebrate. But while a fan of the Bayou Bengals, I am no fan of the elitist BCS and the cigar smoke filled back rooms with racoon coated Big Shots that exclude for the sake of excluding. I am hoping the BCS Title game busting Boise State Broncos go undefeated and along with LSU (being the only undefeated teams) play in the Big One.
- Athletic Conference Realignment . . . Yawn! Wake me up on this one when there is actual news.
- GOP Presidential Politics: I like Newt. There I said it. He's smart, experienced and conservative. I don't care about anything else about him, really. He could beat Obama and the Presidential Debates would be oh so delish!
Well, there you have it for an early Monday morning, Daylight Savings Time Edition. I welcome your input, comments, equal randomization etc.
