Sunday shorts

I found this old railroad crossing sign in Terrell. This reminds me of the kind I used to see in rural areas. Now all of the signs have bells, whistles and gates.



A few Sunday shorts:

The MLB All-Star game is in St. Louis this week. I grew up just on the Illinois side of the Mississippi river. My Mother used to drive me to the old Busch stadium drop me off before Cardinal games then pick me up after the game. I was probably 14 or 15 years old. I couldn't imagine anyone dropping their kids off now days. I remember camping out to get bleacher tickets for the game that Lou Brock collected his 3000th hit.

Sunday's Terrell Tribune is full of stories of local interest, including a potential challenger to Betty Brown's District 4 State House seat.

Cliff Gibson begins a 7 part series running every Sunday and Wednesday featuring the new football coaching staff at Terrell High School. Be sure to stop by your favorite corner store to pick up your copy of the Tribune.

Terrell Photo Walk is the 18th. Looks like we are going to have a nice turnout. There is still time to sign up, click on the banner to the right for details.

Obstructed View should be back this week.

I hope they keep the signs in case the bells, whistles and gates forget to work!

Even with signs, bells, whistles, and gates, I can't understand why some people still stop their cars on the tracks. We have had a rash of train versus pedestrians/cars accidents this year.
