Love is in the air
Always Write

We’re celebrating all things love this issue. Kicking things off is a local couple that you very likely know, but you may not know their love story. Delia and Chip Mobley have a special love story that began in JCPenney, where he says she was the best thing in the whole store. Their story is remarkable and you’ll enjoy reading it.

We decided to focus some of this issue to love stories of a different kind…our love of our pets. So we asked our readers to submit commentary as to why they love their pets, and we were not disappointed. We are featuring four of those stories in this issue, and we know you’ll grow to love these furbabies just as much as their humans. Just be prepared…they’re not all “typical” pets. 

Our Everyday Hero this month is Tendai Haggins. If you live in Portal, you very likely know him, as he is known throughout that community as one who does so much for so many. He’s very deserving of the spotlight, although he will tell you differently.

We hope you enjoy this issue as much as we enjoyed pulling it together. Love is in the air, and we encourage you to hug your favorite person, give your pet a special treat, and be kind to others.
