Diabetes affects millions of people every year. I have several friends who are afflicted with this disease. A couple of them are endurance athletes and have completed the Lake Placid Iron Man. But Diabetes affects them every day of their life.

I will be riding my bike in the 2015 Saratoga Springs Tour De Cure to raise money for people like my friends and many others. The ride will be 50 miles and I would like to raise $1,000. A big goal, but with your help I can make it. I will do the hard work if you will support my fund raising. Any amount helps!

Please click here to make a donation. If you prefer, you can send or deliver your donation to me in the Lapan Services Building, room 116.

Thank you very much for your support!

If you have either a Cub or Boy Scout uniform that is not in use and is ready for a new home, please consider donating it.

I live in a rural area and many of the families cannot afford to purchase Scout uniforms, which unfortunately discourages some boys from even joining scouting.  Thus, I will happily accept donations of any Cub Scout or Boy Scout uniform (or uniform components) and pass them along to scouts, who will make good use of them.

If you have a uniform that you would like to donate or have any questions, please feel free to contact me ( or ext. 7567).

Yours in scouting,

Commemorating the Beginning of an Era that ROCKED the World!
Epiphone is proud to introduce the Ltd Ed “1960” Les Paul Standard honoring 50 years of perhaps the most beloved electric guitar of modern times. The Epiphone 1960 Les Paul Standard comes in three distinct colors, Heritage Sunburst (Version 1), Cherry Sunburst (Version 3) and Heritage Darkburst (Version 3).

Historical Sound and Style
The 1960 Les Paul initially carried over the same basic specifications as its predecessor from 1959. Among these details were the full, rounded “D” shaped neck profile, top-hat control knobs, and Heritage Sunburst finish. These characteristics can be found in Epiphone’s new “Version-1″ of the 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard.
However, by the latter part of 1960, several key specifications were changed. The most significant change was the new SlimTaper™ “D” neck profile that was slimmer and considered “more modern” than the fatter 1959 profile. The “new” SlimTaper neck profile went on to become the standard neck on Les Pauls throughout the 1960s and can be found on Epiphone’s “Version-3″ of 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul in both Cherry Sunburst and Heritage Darkburst.

Both versions were equipped with flatter, wider frets that allow for more dramatic bends. The impact of that change was not truly realized until the 1960’s when rock and blues players like Fleetwood Mac’s Peter Green, Michael Bloomfield, Duane Allman, and Eric Clapton discovered the magical voice and feel of the Les Paul Standard. And since our history with Les Paul goes back to the 1940’s when Les would work late hours at the Epiphone factory in New York to perfect “The Log”, the first solid body electric guitar, we made sure our Limited Edition pays homage to the man that started it all.

Each guitar includes a numbered certificate of authenticity as well as Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service. If you don’t have the wallet for a real “1960” or want a professional instrument that you can perform with night after night hurry and pick up an Epiphone 1960 Les Paul Standard today. Quantities of the “1960” (both Version-1 and Version-3 combined) are limited to 1,960 total worldwide.

After much work and planning, our fine art/art photography website,, has launched. This project is a joint effort of my sister, who has an BFA/MFA in painting, and myself (BFA as well as my DVM).

We create high-quality, signed, limited-edition, original fine art prints and photographs for sale at reasonable prices. The website is designed to emulate the gallery experience, where you can browse images up close (larger) or from afar (smaller), and move from one to the next as you would in a live venue.

All works are printed using archival paper and pigment giclee printing, so they have extraordinary longevity when properly framed and matted.

Come take a look!

Softec girls/youth figure skates, size 2,  with velcro fasteners for ease of putting on and comfort of use.

They’re generally in pretty good shape. Probably would look almost like new with a little Magic Eraser.

These retail new for $40 and up. Yours for $20!
