Approving levy for Unit 2 is a guessing game
Several questions remain unanswered, but Robinson Unit 2 has a tentative tax levy for the coming year.

Unit 2 board members, meeting at Lincoln Elementary School Monday, approved the tentative 2020 levy.

The levy, which does not include money needed to pay off bonds, is almost $12.4 million, up about $100,000, or 6.22 percent, from this year's tax extension. Including bonds, the total levy is closer to $14.6 million.

Despite the rain, 40 people still participated in the 10th Annual Oblong Spooktacular 5K Saturday. Nearly 100 registered men, women, and children were poised and ready for the event, but the number who crossed the finish line was much smaller, chiefly due to the continual rain. Those who did finish ranged in age from 7 to 76.

'Civic Great Awakening' is needed
Many of us sense our great nation - that City upon a Hill - is slipping down the slope, yet we're not sure how to restrain the slide.

Our democratic process is wonderful, yet not perfect. For example, frequent elections - combined with candidates who think the fate of the Western World rides on their personal re-election - induce politicians to focus laser-like on short-term gratification, their own and that of the voters.
