  • GUEST COLUMN: Festivals, neighbors and cats

    Shakespeare wrote; “There is nothing so common as the wish to be remarkable.” This weekend’s Octoberfest in the city will be another reason why this place we call “home” is remarkable. The city will come alive again with pageants, parades, arts and crafts, music, car show, displays, booths, great food, games, and family fun all weekend. Thanks to Gary Kehne, Patsy Lewis, and the hard work and imagination of all of the volunteers and staff who make this event a success every year. I look forward to seeing everyone there.
