I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
As we approach the long July 4th Holiday weekend. I try to remember to reread the Declartaion of Independence. It is always a good reminder of why we Love living in America. It is a day when it seems all Americans feel the same way about our Country. I often wish both political parties and many more Americans would take the time to reread this important document. I have included it hear for your enjoyment.
Summer vacations just aren't what they used to be. I remember them as getting up early, eating a sugary cerea,l then heading to the local park. If there were not enough guys to get a baseball game going, there was the rec department holding their camp. My personal favorite was box hockey. I don't know that this game would be allowed today. 4 kids with sticks trying to hit a ball through a hole in the box. I think I went home with more bruises on my hands then I scored goals. I also probably gave more hand bruises then scored goals.
In case you missed it, Carol Wantuch, the Head of the Cudahy Health Department was recently awarded the 2010 The Wisconsin Public Health Association Lifetime Distinguished Service to Public Health Award.
Late last week, I was talking to someone in regards to my dream of the disability complex. Somewhere in the discussion, an idea came up of who would be best to pitch the idea. Without hesitation, I said it had to be the people who would benefit the most from the complex, that being the individuals with a disability. In my short time on the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities, I have been amazed by the experiences shared by the consumers (individuals with a developmental disability). They know how issues can benefit and affect them.
