Around Town: Don't miss the Marion Garden Club's annual tour
Welcome to June! Hopefully, she will behave better than her sister, Miss May, who went out with a bang of thunderstorms. June will be the month to celebrate National Dairy Food Month and National Iced Tea Month, which should be easy enough. After an appointment with Dr. Hess on Thursday, I got in the car just as a downpour occurred - not a downpour, but a hurricane-like storm. I finally pulled off of Court Street and waited until it subsided. Lots of tree limbs and water on the streets as I headed for home.

Marion Main Street enjoys a successful ribs cookout
MARION -- When you've held an outdoor event for four straight years and it rained on the activity three out of the four, you might expect it to happen again on your fifth try. That's what the history has been for Fifth Annual Marion Main Street's Annual Rib Cookoff going into Saturday's downtown competition. So just imagine what must have been running through the minds of those in attendance when they saw dark clouds rolling in from the west later in the day as the event wound down.
