I must say, I'm disappointed in the Cannon Falls city council's decision to move the Farmer's Market from the big city parking lot down to the park and ride lot.
I wonder how many years that market's been in the same location. It's packed on Saturday mornings. Sure there's congestion at that intersection, but the intersection by the park and ride lot isn't a straight shot, either.
Just seems like so many of our long-time traditions get squeezed out. I hope I'm proved wrong about the council's decision.
The Beacon is instituting a bit of a subscriber-reward program this week: free classifieds!
With some restrictions, of course, but starting this week subscribers will get free "for sale" ads in both the Beacon and Shopper. It's just one way of saying thanks to those of you who've supported us over the years.
There are some caveats; businesses aren't included, nor are ads for individual business persons. For example, a Mary Kay salesperson couldn't use the free ads for their business. There will be a limit of 30 words, just like our regular classifieds. With spring (hopefully) right around the corner, this would be a great way to get that of some of that clutter.
Sad to see the season end for the CF boys basketball team, as well as all winter sports. It certainly was a season of highs and lows, wasn't it? A couple of teams struggled, but yet we had a state champion wrestler and dance team. The Randolph girls basketball team will lose five seniors, but I think the rest of the squads have good groups returning next season.
Spring sports have started, which seems impossible based on the weather we've had lately. I wonder how the snow and ice of this winter will affect the fields and courses. Think Target Field will be ready for the April 1 Twins' home opener?
Like most, I'm ready for this winter to be over. We live on a hill, and our driveway's been glare ice since it rained back in January. It will be nice to drive down and not worry about getting a car buried in snow.
