Singer says thanks for the support

From SHAWN MAYER / Nemaha

Thank you so much for your support since starting my journey on "Nashville Star." It means alot to me to know that Storm Lake has faith in a small town girl from Northwest Iowa in following her dream. I want to thank the Pilot Tribune and all of those fans who came to my hometown concert in May City Wednesday night. I was overwhelmed by the support I saw. It will be an experience I will never forget!


Some life lessons to remember

From SHERISE GIBSON / Storm Lake

Things I think you should remember:

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will.

You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken.

You'll fight with your best friend.

You'll blame a new love for things an old one did.

You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll

eventually lose someone you love.

So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a

minute of happiness you'll never get back.

Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.

Live simply. Love generously.

Care deeply. Speak kindly.
