Government Day returns; kudos to city

Published: Thursday, April 25, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

I would like to take this opportunity to thank City Hall. I received a phone call welcoming our students in for Government Day this year.

I am happy to hear that our officials are interested in our youths’ education and participation in local government. My students will be thrilled to have this opportunity. 

Once again, I appreciate our city officials taking the time to educate our students as to how our city operates.

Note to readers – Chris Bishop is a social studies and reading instructor and head wrestling coach for Dixon High School.

Rock Falls is considering a ban on leaf burning. Should the city finally take that step?
Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
