    “What if I wreck the car … or get sick … or lose my job … or don’t measure up to the challenge?”’

  • COLUMN: Be original when choosing Halloween treats

    I remember trick-or-treating when I was little. My dad would take us all over the neighborhood and beyond. The amount of candy we ended up with was so enormous that we still had Halloween candy at Easter. Of course, it was mostly the stuff we didn't like.

    There was one house, every year, where the lady always gave us the same thing - an apple. I remember thinking, “Who gives apples on Halloween?”

  • Boy Lincoln statue returns to square

    The “Lincoln as a Boy” statue returned to its original spot Thursday on Lincoln Square – just in time for the weekend’s Lincoln Days Celebration.
    The sculpture, a depiction of Abraham Lincoln at age 7 standing with his dog Honey, was knocked from its base by a car on April 10.
    It was dragged under the front end of the car across the traffic island, suffering scrapes, scratches and dents. Honey lost part of an ear.
