The well-being of our future lies firmly rooted in our past. We should never forget who we are, where we came from or how we got here.

To really make changes in our society, we will need to stop and listen to what history is telling us. The core fundamental values that our nation was founded u...pon have become lost in the shuffle to make things better and only seem to now divide and bring us further apart.

Thought for today:
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. ~ Albert Einstein

This is for all who are feeling frustration over life's many challenges. Take a moment to reflect and give thanks for the blessing of life. The challenges will melt away when you put things in proper perspective. Have a great day.

The Mexico community is steeped in rich history. One of the things truly enjoyable about campaigning is getting to learn more about our County’s history.

As Family Court Referee, Thom Benedetto wants the same things for the children he sees in court as he wants for his own children and grandchildren: "to be happy, healthy, and safe with opportunities to thrive." He will bring this same passion to the bench as your Family Court Judge!

Humor helps us to think out of the box. The average child laughs about 400 times per day, the average adult laughs only 15 times per day. What happened to the other 385 laughs? ~ anonymous author

Had the pleasure of attending the Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting today. It was well attended, informative and inspiring.

Here is a question: Is smoking in a car with children present “illegal”.

This is not the law currently but it’s something that comes up often. At issue in a custody case is whether a child’s best interest is impacted if a parent or other person smokes in their presence. When the answer is “yes” a judge has the right to order the parent not to do it, and require that they not allow others to do so in child’s presence. However, it’s usually not controversial since most parents agree that this should not happen.

Each case must be decided on its own merits. This is not an expression of any opinion for or against smoking around children, just some information to provoke thought and discussion.

Inaccurate warnings about an imminent ban on smoking in vehicles when minors are present have been circulating online since 2016.

I believe this with all my heart! Use kind words and share kind thoughts each and every chance you get - Thom
