Tucked away on the west side of the small town of Broad Channel in the middle of Jamiaca Bay is a narrow, dead end, street that goes by the name of West 12th Road. Those of us who live there know that the nice part about living in a small town is that when you are not quite sure what is going on, someone else always does!

Thankfully the election is over and the American people have spoken. Congratulations to President-Elect Donald Trump, Vice President-Elect Mike Pence, and all of last night's winners.
Let's try to put politics aside, at least for the time being, and allow for the peaceful transition of power to occur. President Obama spoke so eloquently about this earlier today. It really is a wonderful American tradition.
I am very proud to be an American, even when I disagree with my President or sometimes even my own party. But now that the campaign is over hopefully we can move forward with open minds and hearts, realizing that we're stronger when we are united. The good Lord has blessed us with a great democracy and we should never lose sight of that. God bless and guide our future President. As always, his success is our success.
