Will Labor Day Ever Get Here?
Has this summer been incredibly busy for everyone or just Ivanhoe? After a fairly sluggish few years, it is really nice to feel the tempo picking up again. The summer has sped by but Labor Day feels like it will never get here. By the way, we love what we do but we do need more people so if you or anyone you know is a former tv reporter who might want to freelance for us, please give me a call!

“Many religions claim that theirs is the only path to the Truth… But God never made an agreement with any of these religions.
