I have rotten a few things since Louis passing but I want to add he understood the " it takes aRead More village to raise a child. He helped many of us do that. Including if your child had a bump in the road of life he would take them aside and give them a talking to. When he was done out would come that big smile and a " are going to do ok, you're a good kid "and maybe a squeeze around the shoulder. Thank you for everything you did for so many people but thank you for loving our children like you did!

Thanks for this post. It's rare to see someone posting such a long article on blogs these days- mostRead More people just write a few sentences and point a link somewhere else. This is original for once. <a href="http://www.valentinospizzaandsportsbar.com/">Family Restaurant</a>

As a former At-Large City Councilor during Duncan Ballantyne's tenure as Concord city manager, I canRead More attest to his dedication to strengthening our city's livability and economic growth. It was during this time that we worked on the Horseshoe Pond, Capital Center for the Arts and South Main Street developments, to name a few now successful projects. He brought energy , dedication and enthusiasm to the Council in those years. Deepest sympathy to his family in his untimely passing.
