A 27-year-old Saline man was charged with reckless driving and failing to stop after a crash after he crashed his girlfriend’s Ford Explorer into a Mills Street home July 7. The 24-year-old  woman has also been charged with providing police with false information about the crash.

Summer is in full swing. This is when we get to spend some extra time with friends, family, and our loved ones. It's also when we are able to take time away from our daily rituals and care for our dear ones.
However, there are times when in the midst of caring for our loved ones, we forget to take care of ourselves. An old adage says, “You can’t pour from an empty cup.”
With this theme in mind, let me ask, are you taking care of your inner world?
