No big changes


By CHRIS MILLSPAUGH

     The election results are in and as far as Idaho is concerned, very little has changed. The same goes for the folks of the Wood River Valley. It’s still the best place to live. The weather is nice, the roads are dry, the people are friendly and the air is fresh and clear.

     Family is still the most important asset in our lives. Our health, our jobs, our income and our happiness remain paramount as well. We value our friends and neighbors, our homes and vehicles, our toys and our animal companions. We’ve been through so many ups and downs that problems don’t frighten us as much as they did before. We know that the sun will come up tomorrow. Most times we find that we are our own worst enemy as we let doubts and fears interfere with our lives. If we could relax with clear minds and enjoy the moments we are in, there would be room for hope and accomplishment.

     This is a great community. We care about each other. It will only get better. So, whether or not you’re rich or poor or young or old or healthy or ailing, or “red” or “blue,” we're all in this together. Winter is coming and it will be followed by spring and winter and fall. That’s all—no big changes.

     Nice talking to you.
