Pritzker in Marion: Vocational ed 'critical' to Illinois future
MARION -- Vocational education was the focus Sunday afternoon at the Laborers Local 773 Training Facility in Marion when Governor-elect J.B. Pritzker and Lieutenant Governor-elect Juliana Stratton organized a roundtable discussion on the issue. The reason for the discussion was to determine the value in promoting and perhaps providing additional funding for vocational education programs in the state and to learn about the two-year training program the Laborers are presently funding on their own for 13 high school juniors from four different schools in Southern Illinois -- Herrin, Marion, Vienna and Johnston City.

Around Town: Christmas activities abound
Christmas Day is getting closer, as we look at the calendar and the long list of things to get done. While baking gingerbread boys and girls to take to our local village hall open house, I was making mental notes of all the chores left to do. I need an elf! Thanks to our daughters, Pam and Nancy, the tree is now completely decorated. The girls also helped me celebrate my Dec. 6 birthday, by inviting me to Cracker Barrel and then to Du Quoin for the Holiday Lights Fair at the Fairgrounds. Very nice!
