Kicks Just Keep Gettin’ Harder To Find


Paul Revere and Fred Arnold
And they’re going to be a lot harder now.
While I was at the office one day last weekend I spent a couple of minutes, as I usually do, cruising the web for updates in news. There it was right in front of me: ‘Rock And Roll Icon Paul Revere Dead.’
 I immediately pulled open my desk drawer, shuffled around a few papers and pulled out an old photo. On one side stood me, goofily smiling next to a be-speckled guy in a in a showman-esque Continental style uniform.....Paul Revere.
 Nearly a decade ago I had the chance to see Revere and his Raiders in concert. After the show as I walked up the aisle Revere happened to be standing there and asked “Want to have your picture taken with an old man?”  Oh boy, did I!

Patronize What We Have Here In Fairbury

Up until recently  there were doubts that Fairbury would ever again have a bowling alley. The Pla-Mor Lanes had sat empty for over a year after it’s former owner had died.
 Those doubts were erased last week when David Rogers along with his sons Nathan and Jason of Gilead purchased the bowling alley and accompanying restaurant ‘The Pla-Mor Cafe.’ The family intends to run both as going businesses.
 This is most welcome news for our community. Any time any person or group of people invests in a local business or industry we should welcome them with open arms. Every commercial enterprise adds to our local economy with wages, utilities, taxes and other dollars trading hands. It is also the same with the bowling alley and cafe.
  But this most recent and appreciated addition to Fairbury does not come without a codicil: people need to patronize it. Do business there.
