"Thank You" to Veterans A new single titled "A Hero's Welcome Home" has been released by mu- sician and small business owner Dennis Haislip, with half of its sales going toward veterans service organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project. The song and accompa: nying music video send a message about not only the sacrifices of those who serve in the armed forces, but the struggles of their friends and family back home. The song was writ- ten and arranged by Haislip and performed by the group Dennis Haislip and The Blue Collar Opry, which also includes cen- tral Iowa musicians Steve Rorebeck, A1 Clarke and Mike Hoversten, all three of whom are U.S. veterans. While Haislip believes that the song has a main- stream appeal he warns that it is not a "happy" ' song: "We want it to honor the sacrifice of veterans and their families and de- liver a well-overdue dose of stark reality for those unfamiliar with the true cost of freedom," Haislip says. Haislip hopes the song will reach a wide au- dience and plans to dis- tribute the song to radio stations all across the country. The song was recorded in Ames at the Alexander Recording Kompany and mastered by Eric Conn at Independent Mastering in Nashville, TN. The song can be purchased directly from their website, www.b luecollaropry.com and the music video can be found on the website and on YouTube. The song is also available on iTunes for $.99. The poinsettia is named for Joel Roberts Poinsett, an American diplomat. Deadline for ads, legals and stories is Noon Friday! Stop down by the Windflower Park and see the new updated sign.
