Since my last column, selfish and hateful acts of violence carried out by a white-supremacist took the lives of 22 people in El Paso, Texas. Just hours later, nine more were killed in Dayton, Ohio at the hands of another sick and demented individual consumed with hate.

And while there will certainly be a number of debates about how to address the increasingly frequent mass-shootings, it is my sincere hope that we will first seek to unite behind a common commitment to reaffirm our identity as one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. more

The following information is a summer rerun, from what appeared in the Meteor three years ago this month. Locals who were here 60 or more years ago have memories of the courthouse that graced our Town Square before the current one. Several photos of that previous one hang in the Museum. Usually they catch new visitors’ eyes right off the bat. It was totally different than our current one. For many of us, a fascination stems from the proverb “We don’t appreciate what we have until it is gone.” more
