Phone Scam for Utility Bills

Once again there is a scam by phone being made attempting to get you to pay your utility bill by sending money or they are threatening to shut off your utilities etc. 

The City of Fairbury Light and Water does not call you in an attempt to get funds to pay your utility bill.  Please be alert to the fact that you should be cautious about anyone wanting money transferred by phone for any reason.

Once again your utility bill will always need to be paid at the local City Light and Water office, not by phone.

Josie The Thanksgiving Lamb

Thanksgiving has come and gone, which means that it is officially lambing time. We don’t need a calendar to know when lambing begins; it’s all based on the holidays. The lambing season for our flock is Thanksgiving Day to Valentine’s Day with at least half of the flock lambed by New Year’s Day. 
Last year triplets were born two days before Thanksgiving and started the lambing season, so when Thursday evening chores came this year and we still had no lambs, I was ready to declare the season off to a slow start. But by dark we had our first lamb, and we were back on track. 
Kane was still awake when we made the lamb discovery, and he was so excited that he had to come outside and help crate the new family. He instructed me to grab the mother so that he could carry the lamb. For the next hour all he could do was talk about that new little lamb, which happens to be an all-black female. I get a couple black lambs a year, and they are usually rams.

Letters to the Editor

Bring Back Pride 
In Our Country
 
Editor:
It’s like a cancer or maybe worse.
It starts in places that aren’t noticed or is just ignored because of our own choice with our hopes and prayers that maybe it will go away. I am talking about the radical Islamists population and their demands that are being met with what, to me, is practically an apology from the American people.
The latest, that I am aware of, is in one of the largest school districts in Maryland. the school district has chosen to remove and leave to remove and leave off any reference of Christian holiday from their school calendars.
Isn’t that great? If the partons of those schools choose to ignore things like that, the cancer will spread even faster and farther. So far there isn’t any real cure.

Chance Meeting Causes Me To Think About Our Community

I’m always thinking about something. My mind rarely shuts down. Whether it’s a rare ability I am not quite certain but I do possess the knack for being able to think about several things all at once. Brain multi-tasking you might say.
 I was doing just that one day last week while exiting the Journal-News office. While thinking about something I hurredly left the office and nearly ran head first into Fairbury attorney Joe Casson who was equally hurrying somewhere.
  For those who don’t know Casson, at one-time Jefferson County Attorney, has thrown his hat into the ring to again be county attorney. Casson is among three seeking the position created when county attorney Linda Bauer resigned to be appointed Jefferson County Judge.
