The Most Important Holiday in June
A s spring turns into summer during the month of June, there’s an upcoming holiday on which we celebrate a remarkable friend and parent. I am of course talking about my wife, whose birthday is on June 14. You might notice Marjorie’s birthday is a few days before Father’s Day. In my family, we celebrate my wife’s birthday first with much pomp and circumstance; then, in the aftermath, I might get a tie or some power tools for Dad’s Day. All right, maybe Father’s Day isn’t completely forgotten, but it definitely takes second place to my wife’s birthday — not that you’ll ever hear me complaining. A few months ago, I shared the story about how Marjorie and I met on our first day of MBA school. After this beautiful CPA volunteered to help me with accounting homework, I thought I was so clever when I convinced her we should grab something to eat instead. Looking back on it, there was no reason Marjorie should have spent
this woman. Though, I did have a moment of pause when I learned her dad’s nickname was Chainsaw. She quickly clarified he owned a tree-cutting company, dispelling the images of the 1974 movie “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” which danced briefly through my head.
I find it hard to believe this amazing woman is my wife.
As I reflect, I realize now that offering to help me with accounting may have been Marjorie’s strategy to trick me into a date. She obviously saw right through my trap from the beginning, but still ate dinner with me and went on to invite me to hang out later. Our acquaintanceship evolved into a friendship, which turned into dating until the day we were married in Maui. I was there the whole time, but I find it hard to believe this amazing woman is my wife. Marjorie’s still a CPA, and she handles all the accounting for the firm on top of running her own travel agency. She always has a lot on her plate, yet she still finds time to spend with family, put up with me, and even plan a gender reveal party to celebrate our eldest daughter’s first pregnancy. With as much as Marjorie does, I’m happy to have her birthday overshadow Father’s Day just a little. Please let me take a moment to wish a very happy birthday to my wife. Marjorie, you’re wonderful, and I cannot picture my life without you!
that entire meal with me. When we arrived at the restaurant, I tucked a napkin into my shirt — oh yeah, I was real smooth. Despite my lack of napkin etiquette, we sat and talked for hours about everything that came to mind that evening. I’m not sure if it was the stories Marjorie told, the way she smiled, or the light in her eyes, but before the night ended I knew I would marry

Traffic Horrors Continue on Lee County Roads
In the past month or so, we have brought you news about several horrific accidents on Lee County roads. We have also been discussing the impact of snowbirds during our tourist season. We have tried to make it a point to say that it’s not only the snowbirds who cause accidents on our roads. Over the past few weeks, we have seen the following horrific accidents occur: • A young mother lost her legs while acting the part of a good Samaritan. • A woman was killed in a hit-and-run. • Two teenagers were killed in an accident on the way to school. • Many additional accidents happen daily due to distracted, drunk, or irresponsible driving. Folks, I cannot say it enough times: Please be careful out there. More often than not, phones, alcohol, and distracted driving contribute to these tragic accidents. Most of these accidents could have been avoided. Sadly, accidents such as these are on the rise; yet, given all we have learned, they should be on the decline. This leads me to remind you of another important detail: Make sure that you have adequate automobile insurance. Really. I’ve seen too many victims of accidents come to me without any real coverage. It’s not a happy thing to see. I don’t like insurance. I don’t like insurance companies. I don’t make any money telling you to buy more insurance. However, it seems this is the only way you can protect yourself in this world gone crazy.
At the very least, please take a moment to download my e-book about auto insurance coverage and why you really need to have it. It won’t cost you anything, but it might just protect you when an accident happens.
What’s a good word for a really long document?

own experience in a car accident that piqued her interest. Nelly, like most people, didn’t know what she was supposed to do after her car accident. She explains, “I was scared and confused as to what I should do next. As I started doing research on personal injury and seeking what my options were and how these people were going to help me, I realized I wanted to be that person who people seek for help after they go through a situation like mine. I want to help them get through that rough and scary moment of their life.” Welcome to our team, Nelly!
