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.

Hutsonville deals with clogged, aging sewer line
The Hutsonville Village Board Tuesday night heard several reports on infrastructure problems, accepted a resignation and promoted a part-time police officer.

Aging sewer pipes clogged on the northeast side of town last week. According to Rob Plew, the old clay tile sewer pipe is full of sediment. Extra effort to jet out the line was needed and other work is scheduled as weather permits. Plew said that particular line is under water several months of the year, which adds to the problem of dirt seeping in.

How should we show veterans our appreciation?
Today is Veterans Day. Sadly, some individuals simply consider it as just a day off work, never giving a thought as to the sacrifice associated with it. For those of us who realize the true meaning of this national holiday, we recognize it as a day of reflection and appreciation for our current and previous military veterans―some of whom have paid the ultimate sacrifice with their very lives.
