I don’t know who is responsible for it but the flowers on the corner of Niles and Daggy are just breathtaking. I really enjoy them and want to thank whoever added that bright spot to the town.

I don’t think that yard sales are safe to have right now. I get wanting to clear out the clutter, but it doesn’t seem like it’s worth the risk.

We are asked to support our local businesses, but they don’t always support us.  I went to Do It Best the other day and I was the only one in the store who had a mask on.  When I asked the check out person why they were not wearing masks she said “we can if we want to, but I don’t want to”.  Fortunately, there are Champaign-Urbana stores who will get my business and believe in protecting their customers.  Kudos to Bath and Body Works who not only asks customers to mask and sets an example by doing so themselves, but also limit the number of people in the store at any one time.

Thank you to Mayor Kleiss on his appointment of Juanita Brace to the Tuscola City Council, I look forward to having her be a part!

Please wear your masks. I care for older family members and go out as little as I can, but I simply cannot not get food and medicine. I don’t want to go out to get what I need, only to be stupidly exposed and kill them.

It is so sad to see what happened to the old Dixie Cream Donuts, I had a lot of good memories in that place and will miss driving by it, and I really miss the donuts.

    My husband and I have enjoyed spending time at Ervin Park in Tuscola. Sometimes we pick up a meal and enjoy it while sitting in the pavilion. But the last time we stopped by, there was trash all through the East end of the pavilion. I didn’t pick it up because I didn’t have any gloves. I think the park board should consider putting trash cans with lids, that are hinged. To keep birds and squirrels from pulling the trash out! But…..I know that isn’t a solution if humans are the ones littering! PEOPLE, PLEASE PICKUP AFTER YOURSELVES! TAKE PRIDE IN THIS PARK! THANK YOU!
