    Loved all the First Day of school pictures that were submitted. Hope they have a safe and great year!

    Wear your masks! It protects others and it is the right thing to do! I am so tired of Americans acting selfishly because they believe their “freedoms” are being infringed on due to a simple and hygienic requirement during a freakin pandemic.

    I am not a fan of our current President, and believe him to be the worse President the country has ever had. I cringe when I see a flag or banner supporting the current President. However, I think we should remember what makes this country special. The following quote is attributed to Patrick Henry, although it is unclear if he actually ever said it. But, I think we should take the meaning to heart.

    “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it,”

    The Presidential Debate was one the most embarrassing things I have ever watched. It made me ashamed that this is the image that we put forth to the world, that, this is what democracy should look like. Shame on both candidates. I wish there was a realistic alternative. I don’t want to vote for either candidate.

    Cannot wait for Broadway to open back up in the winter! School traffic really is much crazier without that through street to help break things up. I miss it.

    Is there any way to get prior notice to a control burn? I know its beneficial and must be done. However, it was a startling sight and a concern for those of us in the community with breathing issues like asthma.

    I say NO to the Governor and his closing stores. Who says he can pick and choose who says open and who closes. Restaurants have to close but Walmart and grocery stores can stay open. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want them to close either, but I don’t think people elected him to make these types of decisions. He’s not God. Let the public make up their own minds wether they should go out to dinner or not. Gov. Pritzker, stay out of our business. It’s our choice not yours.

    Downtown Arthur looks beautiful with the hanging baskets along with the American Flags and the new Arthur sesquicentennial flags
