On Friday, July 3rd President Trump set off fireworks at the historic Mt Rushmore. Around  7,500 tickets were sold making it difficult to social distance if you choose to wear a mask and follow these recommendations. It is now legal to not obey these once rules. There was a protest because Mount Rushmore was created on sacred Native American land. The protests were peaceful but soon the National Guard intervened and started to arrest the protesters.  Trump supporters were yelling “go back to where you came from.”                                 Photos of 'THE BIG FIREWORKS' at Mount Rushmore over the years ...


Antiques on Main

Written by: Billie Paine


You might know Boots and Bangles on Main Street, but have you gone into the other shops?  One of them is an antique store and it is amazing! They have civil war relics that are in impeccable shape considering how old they are. Tons of china cups, pots and pans, and books.  We asked about a cookbook that we really liked and the owner was very nice and gave it to us for free! If you are going stir crazy (like us) take 10 minutes to visit this awesome shop (wear a mask and take safety precautions for yours and others safety).


Thank you for reading this weeks’,
