Letters of support for candidates.

I have been asked to write several of these letters. Of course I will do it.

But are they effective? What do you think?

Residents turn out to show support for police.

Around 50 people walk around Ogle County Courthouse

Around 50 people took to the sidewalks around the Ogle County Courthouse on June 20 to let local law enforcement officers know they have their support.

"We just wanted to show support for our police, fire and EMTs," said Dian Schrimpsher of Oregon, who suggested the event with her husband, Gary, on social media.

Those attending the "Police Appreciation Walk" walked around the historic courthouse square carrying signs that read, " Ogle County Supports Our Police" and "We Support and Pray for Our Police."

"I just mentioned it on a Facebook group," Gary said of the event. "I'm not an organizer. this isn't by me - it's by the community. You just see on TV everybody kicking the cops down and that's not what average Americans want. We're not disagreeing with anybody, except cop haters, the ones you see on TV throwing rocks and things."

Leave it to my county to be out of step with the rest of the country and the rest of the world. Read some of the stupid comments and be glad you don't know any of those people.

And not a mask in sight.

Would I be a Karen if I went into a grocery store and refused

to be checked out by a store clerk not wearing a mask?
