On Sunday, I went to the flea market with my niece and her husband. I had never been before. It was held at the City Park, and I was surprised by the size of the operation. At one point, we got separated and my niece called me on my cell phone to ask me where I was. I said I didn’t know. She asked me if I was on the east side of the park and I said I didn’t know. It was quite a cloudy day and I couldn’t see the sun, so the whole “rises in the east and sets in the west” thing didn’t help me much. At one point, a couple of walked past me. One of them was looking for something. I heard her walking companion declare, “Oh, that’s way over on the east side.”
I still didn’t know where I was but I called my niece back and told her, “I’m pretty sure I’m not on the east side.”
Items for sale ran the gamut from unmitigated junk to fine art.

Obama oversteps with his presidential order on imagination. Supreme Court has to fix president’s mess. The justice department lawyers lied to the Judge. The judge has to take steps to correct Obama’s justice department.
Benghazi attracted Obama, not present, at important meeting. Hillary makes up cover story about movie. Hillary’s failure to act, over 600 request for security aid. Hillary misleads and spins the story not only to the American people but, she lies to the families who lost their brave family member. Hillary lies and blames a YouTube movie.
Hillary was concerned about American military wearing US. Military uniforms while going to save American lives in Benghazi. Our military never even got the chance to go to Benghazi to try. Hillary was so busy trying to come up with a big spin lie.

Thank you for the coverage of the groundbreaking ceremony for the Bonham Theatre Project on June 27, 2016. The headline, “Bonham Moves Forward” is accurate; the renovation of the Bonham Theatre is progressing. However, it was brought to my attention that the reporting of various numbers created some confusion.
I offer the following as clarification and I hope it is helpful:

This was the first Fourth of July Flea Market my wife and I have been to in many, many years. My kids have never been to one and my wife put it best: “I was ill prepared for the magnitude of such an event.”
She had to go three different times to see everything, juggle the kids and haul items she bought back to the van.
Vendors changed daily, the sights, smells and bargains were a lot to take in at once. There were thousands of people in the park and the community in general.
Where my wife saw a bustling event, I saw an opportunity. The flea market is definitely what Fairbury needs: A drawing point to the community.
Having a purpose to head to a community is vital to the economic growth of that town. Wilber has Czech Days. You go for the food, parades, history, culture, pageants and just plain fun for all ages.

Sometimes random things get written down on my notepad. Maybe not items quite worthy of a full-blown, dedicated column, but things I would like to note just the same. This is the week to share some of those.
This past Sunday, I watched a segment on “CBS Sunday Morning” that spotlighted President FDR’s Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The program, which was in existence from 1933 to 1942, taught skills and provided jobs to men ages 17-28.
The program, which planted nearly 3 billion trees, also constructed more than 800 parks nationwide; upgraded most national parks; and constructed a network of service buildings and public roads. In its nine-year run, the CCC taught skills to more than 3 million men who had difficulty finding jobs. Listed as a principal benefit was “improved physical condition, heightened morale and increased employability.”

Jefferson County Commissioners have approved two contractors to perform work at the highway department’s county shop building. Highway supervisor Jason Eyer presented cost estimates for new floor tile and a new door at the shop.
“We could put carpeting in, and it would be cheaper,” said Commissioner Michael Dux during the board’s regular Tuesday meeting. “But it won’t stay clean. The tiles won’t stay clean, either, with highway workers coming into the shop in the winter with muddy shoes.”
However, the chairman said, the tile will be easier to maintain in the long-run.
Commissioners passed the motion 2-0 to hire Barber Furniture Co. to do the tile work and Fairbury Glass to replace the doors. Commissioner Mark Schoenrock was absent The total cost of the project will be about $6,000, commissioners said. Commissioners also said that these repairs do not have to be put out for bids.
