Housing Centrally Located


The Russell Terrace housing units are being torn down to make room for modern living quarters.  That's me in the lower right hand corner.



The Russell Terrace community was built in the late 1950s.  Relatives of mine have lived here.  The meeting hall is where the Cub Scouts had one event or two.  Ah, my youth.

From Foodstuffs To Bingo Chips


The former Super S grocery store has taken on a new life, that of a bingo parlor.

It was two years ago that the store was clearing out:  January 26, 2016 Super S on Clark selling everything 50 percent off. Lease to expire.

In December of that same year I blogged about the owner of the property making questionable improvements on the place.

Primaries Coming Soon


There's a lot to be said for campaign signs: they litter the landscape, they add to the local economy and they usually carry with them an unintended whimsy.
