Let’s all gather together and have a town meeting.
You don’t have to agree with me if you choose not to. This is, after all, an opinion column. I have written many columns with the intent to show all of you that Rantoul is not such a bad place to live.

When it comes to pitching in to lend a hand, school board members are some of the most selfless volunteers around. They are ordinary people, and in their everyday lives they might be farmers or bankers, homemakers or doctors, truck drivers or professors, business owners or retirees.
National Novel Writing Month continues at Rantoul Public Library. You’re invited to express your creative side by joining everyone each Sunday in November, from 3-4:30 p.m.
Members of the New Writers Group will be on hand for encouragement and to discuss the special project they have in the planning.

A quarterly meeting of the former Chanute Air Force Base Restoration Advisory Board might be of public interest to Rantoul area residents.
