“Mirror of Reflection”

To capture the pulse of our City,

And celebrate the good we share,

And challenge us to be a bit better,

With others with a heart of care;

To print the thoughts of differed voices,

To give warning and plant a seed,

To applaud our American cultures,

And alert us, where there is a need;

To be a Mirror of Reflection,

For all to seek our best,

Growing together in community,

Encouragement to meet each test;

A vital connection to one another,

Words which seek the truth of the day,

Recording our history for posterity,

And guidance along the way;

Two decades of service to its people,

To enrich, inform and declare,

This is the place to work and play,

And you’re welcome everywhere;

So let’s join in proud happy hands,

And applaud this moment in time,

Our award winning publication,

To subscribe to and all call “mine”!
