Not only did he congratulate them, he took pictures! He also made an appearance at the Arlington Heights High School literacy rally.

Cheers: To the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers for their beautiful display of patriotism at each World Series game. All were standing with their caps over their heart and some were singing while our national anthem was played. And what great games! Fun to watch.

Cheers: To Target for placing Thanksgiving “back on the menu.” Because it isn’t a big money-making holiday, Thanksgiving has been skipped over too often. First Halloween, then Christmas! I will hold Target in high esteem for this brilliant decision.

Cheers: To James Hawks, Paschal Neighborhood Association president. Before your compassion for community, we weren’t represented. As a result of your leadership and hard work to create our association in 2003, we have a railroad crossing to alert us, sidewalks around the school, speed bumps, and money in the bank.
