Open forum Aug 13-19




Hello, everyone. I have been contacted by a few of you about some “technical difficulties” we have been experiencing with commenting on the open forums the past few days. I have been in contact with the vendor whose system we use as a comments engine so to speak. Today I was told it should be operational by about 1:15 pm. My fingers are crossed. Thank you for your patience and again, my apologies.
