  The editor:  The City needs to be more effective in managing the interests of the City. It can easily make many proclamations and select a flag, but cannot seem to get new industry here.  The City should have followed the Zoning Commission and Development Directors suggestions last week to zone...
  Whew! Can you believe we have made another wonderful school year? Although the fiscal year runs until June 30, the all-important “last day for students” was Wednesday, May 31. It seems only yesterday we were in August and school was just beginning. It is amazing how time flies when you are having...
  Thursday night was Cosby night. Growing up as an '80's kid, I looked forward to watching the life of the Huxtable family on Thursdays. TV Guide wrote that "Cosby" was "TV's biggest hit in the 1980s, and almost single handedly revived the sitcom genre."  They ranked TCS as #28 in the top 50...
  If my monthly articles are to reflect community consciousness, I truly hope the community is aware of a blessing from School District 56.  If you did not know, I am the proud father of four beautiful daughters who keep me and my wonderful wife busy.   Many residents often see us in a grocery...
The editor: I would like to compliment you on your editorial column in the May 24 issue The Chronicle.

  The last I heard, he was still alive—only retiring—but I’m going to say it anyway: Very few people in my life have been a bigger influence on me than Larry Brock Franklin.  Exhibit A is that sentence right there. That just looks complicated. I’m not sure I’d be able to navigate that kind of...
Does anyone know what today is? If you said, “Wednesday” that’s correct but still not right. Think specifically, June 14th. Any ideas? How about if I add the term “vexillology?”  Give up? Today is Flag Day and “vexillology” is the study, collection and design of flags. I find this topic most...
When the Class of 2017 walked out of the Clinton High School gymnasium last Wednesday night, they were freshly-recognized high school graduates who had garnered a total of almost 100 scholarships and awards considered worthy enough to be listed in the graduation program. In consideration of...
It’s hard to imagine exactly where we are today as a people. The level to which our discourse has fallen is so low, our perceptions of reality, Left and Right, are so disparate it is hard to imagine how we got here. One of our old debates is whether art imitates life or life imitates art. Do...
