convent in Ireland , the 98-year-old Mother Superior lay dying. The nuns
gathered around her bed trying to make her last journey comfortable. They
tried giving her warm milk to drink but she refused it.
One of the nuns took the glass back to the kitchen. Then, remembering a bottle
of Irish Whiskey that had been received as a gift the previous Christmas, she
opened it and poured a generous amount into the warm milk.
Back at Mother Superior's bed, they held the glass to her lips. The frail nun
drank a little, then a little more and before they knew it, she had finished
the whole glass down to the last drop.
As her eyes brightened, the nuns thought it would be a good opportunity to have
one last talk with their spiritual leader..
"Mother," the nuns asked earnestly,

She raised herself up in bed on one elbow, looked at them and said: "
I know I have been saying that I have taken some Fall color pictures. The thing is I have and been wanting to get them posted to you before they go away. So here are some of the pictures I have taken.
This picture I had taken at Prichard Park by the baseball field.
This picture I had taken at Prichard Park by the entrance to the park.
This picture I had taken at Johnson Park in the back by the picnic area.
This picture I had take at Johnson Park in the back by the football field.
I took these pictures this past Friday after I took my daughter to Oshkosh and after seeing Drew on his last break. I just didn't want to go home and then go back out to pick Drew up from work so I decided while I am waiting to pick Drew up I would go and get some Fall pictures to share with everyone. I did go to one other park but nothing to take a picture of. I also found a nice spot to sit and get some bird pictures at Johnson Park and I did take a couple of pictures for Drew too. I hope everyone enjoys the pictures just as much as I enjoy going out and taking them to share with everyone!

1423 State Street.
"Assistant Director Sadowski presented the request
for the certified survey map, indicating that this request was previously in
front of the Plan Commission as part of a vacation of an alley for the State Street Train
Station/Transit Center. An overview of the proposal was provided, including the general
location, proposed boundaries, surrounding land uses, and the three parcels
involved in the creation of the two-parcel certified survey map.
