We all love to swim in and enjoy the creeks that surround our communities during the warm summer months. While we are recreating in our beautiful county we should be conscious of the effect we are having on the area for other users and for wildlife.
This past week, while on a walk with some friends, I noticed someone had driven up and down Spanish Creek and the beach near the big pullout off Beskeen Lane.
Last week I went to take pictures of the fourth-graders enjoying Living History Day at the museum in Quincy. They were dressed up in pioneer costume, doing all kinds of pioneering activities like baking biscuits in a woodstove oven and churning butter.
They learned to sew buttons, pan for gold, make drip candles, wash laundry using a washboard and make jerky.
