I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

Local Elections

I just voted in our local elections here in fabulous Newport News. The City Council race was pretty intense. A long time member, Bill Haskins, retired opening up an opportunity. Six candidates have been aggressively vying for this slot. It is very interesting watching politics at the local level. I pulled the lever for Pat Woodbury. Will she win? She looks to be among the favorites but some of the "good old boys" appear to be behind someone else. As I get older I can more clearly see the powers who control much of what happens in my hometown. A Woodbury win might shake that up a little.
