  • Without this, you could not connect to the internet

     Virtually every organization is connected to the internet. As such, virtually every entity has a network that needs to be managed – including your home network on a much smaller scale. Whenever someone buys or upgrades a wireless router, connects their devices and/or configures wireless parameters, they are managing a network.

  • A rare and precious apple

     When Dr. H. G. Jones died on Oct. 14, our state lost a key connection to its history as well as a prime and positive, but all too rare, example of dedicated and unselfish public service.
