Downtown Clean Up Day

It’s clean up day in downtown Washington this weekend. Danielle Grotewiel with Downtown Washington Inc says it would be nice for the city to look its best for the America In Bloom judges who will be in town July 11th and 12th. If you are interested in helping out, the clean-up will begin at 8:00am on Saturday at the downtown post office and will run until noon. Lunch will be provided by the Lions Club and t-shirts will be given out to the first people to show up. The focus this year will be clearing the downtown area of any weeds, so if you have a weed eater, it will be put to good use. If you can’t make it Saturday but still want to help out, contact Downtown Washington Inc at 636-239-1743

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
