There’s nothing new about hate speech or hateful behavior; both have been around since Cain. Until recently, misguided speech/actions in this country were protected by the First Amendment (maybe you remember when the U.S. Supreme Court allowed Nazis to march through the predominately Jewish town of Skokie; you can’t get more hateful or obnoxious than the Nazis).
The winds of March may be trying to keep kites in the sky, but Rantoul Public Library provides far more fun for you and your family.
With movies, board games, weekly preschool story time and more, the library assures you that this is the place where there’s something always happening.
If I told you, it would not be a secret anymore. So let’s just talk about something we know.
Humor is a gift from God, and He does have a great sense of humor.
Imagine owning a downtown store with large picture windows and finding out at 10:30 on a Sunday night two weeks ago that the wind had blown in her back door and blew out the front windows.
She had glass everywhere.
They are still cleaning up, and the store, A Second Chance, located at 100 E. Sangamon Ave., will be open soon.

Yes, I’m afraid this is going to be another one of those sappy, hometown pieces that I tend to do from time to time.
Last Thursday evening was very scary as I watched the weather reports with the strong wind. I was worried about several family members and friends.
Remembering what happened in Gifford only made things worse. I also thought about a niece who lives on the East Coast.
Lately she has told me some of the things that have happened to her and then said, “Why me?”
February is rapidly winding down, and spring will be here. Not too soon for many.
Patience is not a virtue for most people, and many have expressed it over the waning days of winter. God sees patience as a great virtue if we only accept it and practice it.
Art is thought in process
Indi Go Art Gallery held a photography exhibition and lecture by the exhibiting artist Chris Smith Jan. 30.
Isn’t it wonderful to have television? And cable?
We all pay different prices for what we have, and what are we paying for?
Commercials. Yes, that’s right.
Just start to watch a movie on television and really get into it, and here it comes.
Many years ago we received broadcast television with an antenna, and the commercials were to pay for the shows.
