"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

Unforunately summer has ended and we are all too quickly heading towards what I've heard might be a winter to rival last year.  Let's hope not.  But if you would like to sit in your cozy warm house, office or some destination very far south of here and see what the weather's like out my window looking at Dexter.  Check out the Webcam page.  Got some new hardware involved this year so the archive is not working yet, but you can still get the live shot and the archive should be online soon.

Edit:  Seems there was a problem with the page.  I think it's been fixed.

Did you know that Dexter has made it to Google's street view?  They didn't drive around town or anything.  Just passed through.  There must have been some interesting weather that day too depending on what block you were on.  You'll see what I mean if you take a tour of State Street by going here.  Google Map. I'd recomend clicking on the "Larger Map" link on the page to get a better view.

Our highly scientific poll results are as follows:

Branstad - 57%
Culver - 30%
Other - 11%

Congrats to who ever turns out to be the winner.


Unless you've been living under the proverbial rock you know that the midterm elections are just about a week away.  Everyone should be thrilled about this if for nothing other than the crap in the mail will slow down and we can get back to normal everyday crappy commericals instead of who didn't pay their taxes and who's giving guns to criminals.

People are saying this election is kind of a big deal.  Some are even calling it a turning point in our country's history.  Are we, as a country, going to go down the big goverment route where our every need is taken care of by the state or are we going to take the route our Founding Fathers had in mind.  The route that includes limited centralized goverment and with liberties and freedoms granted by our Creator and be responsible citizens that take care of ourselves and our neighbors when they are in need.

Please take some time to learn about who your voting for.  Regardless of how you stand take the time to cast your vote.  A lot of good people have spilled a lot of blood to give you this opportunity.  Take advantage of it.  Go vote November 2nd.

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government) those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny”

The 2010 Fall Festival has been done and over with for a week now.  I know I'm a little slow with this but here are the results that I have and were passed off to me.  The Parade even with the 10:00am start was a huge sucess.  Turn out was spectacular with weather to match.  You can find the Grand Parade Winners on the 2010 Fall Festival Page.  This years Dexter Gallup was the biggest one I have ever been involved in.  We had a large number of walkers that don't get mentioned.  It was great to see them turn out.  As always the 5k race results have a page all their own.  2010 Dexter Gallup Results I took some pictures with my shiny new cell phone that I haven't been able to get off of there yet.  If anyone has any they would like to share, event results, or comments please use the Contact Us page and I'll tell you what to do.  Thanks to everyone who helped make the 2010 Fall Festival a huge success.

If you would like to be in the parade or a vendor.  Please see the Fall Festival 2010 page and download the appropriate form.  Get them filled out and sent in as soon as possible.  The more the merrier!!
