As soon as I did it, I knew it was a mistake. But it was too late, the ‘senior moment’ was over. I happened to be on top of my flat roof in the back of our house, shoveling off the heavy snow onto the yard. The first two-thirds of the two feet of snow were light and fluffy.

I’m not sure when it became optional to stop for stop signs, but that seems to be the case lately. Otherwise, why would motorists do the stupid things they do?

Glencoe City Council on Monday night approved exploring other options concerning the proposed demolition of a vacant Hennepin Avenue commercial building (former General Store) as it struggled with the $124,370 low bid for its removal. “This is an odd occurrence,” said Mayor Randy Wilson. “It hasn’t happened before.” He said past demolition costs...
