I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
It is the second day of the school year.
Regularly scheduled school busses zip -zap through our neighborhood picking up their burdens and delivering them to apprioprate classrooms.
All over town most school buildings have already accepted this year's student influx and all seems to be well.
But, not in my neighborhood!
The other day I got reacquainted with an old friend I haven't seen for a long time - the Bug Line Trail. Now that I'm retired there are a lot more hours available for doing things that I have put off. So, not wanting to be more of a couch potato I decided to take a long walk.
Actually, my wife made the decision. And so we headed off for the intersection of Menomonee and Main. There is parking there for three or four cars.
