Woman’s help appreciated during 5K run

Published: Saturday, July 13, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

Thank you to whoever the thoughtful lady was who picked up my 12-year-old daughter after she fell July 6 in the Reagan 5K run during the Dixon Petunia Festival.

Fortunately for her, she is in much better shape than her father and was way ahead of me by the time the runners got down to River Street.

She said that she got tripped up and fell when they bottlenecked the runners together by the stage before getting on the bridge.

Thank you again.

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.
