Stormy weather

What's the word on weather where you are? A neighbor tells us by telephone of signs of wind damage to Cook Automotive on Main Street. Cook lost its Chrysler/Jeep dealership this week in the company' reorganization.

UPDATE: Just got back from a looksee, and yep, it's a mess. The whole south wall of the building is lying in a heap of smashed cinderblock in the parking lot. Luckily no cars damaged, though owner Paul Cook (in photo above) said that just yesterday the lot beside the wall was lined with vehicles. "Luckily we moved them out of there this morning," Cook said.

On this latest catastophe, Cook said: "This is like the icing on the cake."

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
