Last Days Of Session Have Flurry Of Activity

From Senator Laura Ebke:
 
We are in the home stretch of this legislative session.  By the time you read this, we will have completed Day 59, and be returning for our last day of the 60 day session on April 20. Last week was unusual, to say the least. We had two days of filibuster/extended debate, where very little progress was made, and then one day where we moved a lot of bills.

Letters to the Editor

Would Nude Gardeners  Come To Fairbury?

Editor:
It seems that every time a shindig is held in Fairbury the paper toots how many people came to town and all they money they spent.
Now being the first Saturday in May (May 7) is “World Wide Nude Gardening Day” if our honorable Mayor was to issue a proclamation that Fairbury was honoring this tradition to the fullest and someone was to print up maps like they do for flea markets as to where to go.
Just think how many people would come to town, me to, and how much money would be spent.

Go Out And Get Scared

Having lost classmates to drinking and driving leaves you with a bit of an empty feeling sometimes.
At class reunions, you are reminded they are not there and missed out on the last 20-plus years. They also missed out on going to your wedding, going to their own wedding, seeing their children born, running into you at the store and various other things we all take for granted in this life.
In college I lost two classmates as they drove home in a Jeep from a party. Another, having been drinking, was pretty messed up in a car accident not too long after that incident.
The sad thing is just about everywhere I go, there is a story of a drunk driving accident where a young person lost their life.

Rehabbing Houses Is Just As important As Tearing Them Down

 Sometimes I get stuck in a loop.
There are times when I have something on my mind or have a certain opinion, that opinion is all I can see. It’s the “can’t see the forest for the trees” issue. For those of you who follow my thoughts on politics, welfare and shopping local you know exactly what I mean.
You can add to that housing. It’s really been no secret that I am a huge proponent of firing up the bulldozer and levelling large chunks of Fairbury. 
Like my friend councilman Roger Bailey says if you want to get rid of the cockroaches you have to get rid of where they live. 
There are that many run-down houses in Fairbury and they need to be torn down.
