Progressives cause havoc on Verona City Council

Verona’s weekly newspaper was prescient: “There will be an unprecedented change the likes the council has never seen before,” the Press predicted last spring. It did not take long for the eight-member City Council, now evenly divided after the surprise election of four progressives, to boil over in dissension.

Life goes on for Bobby Hinds, Lifeline founder

Eighty-three-year-old Bobby Hinds has sold his Lifeline, the company he built over the past 40 years, so now it’s time for the indefatigable fitness fanatic to retire, right? Wrong.
