Don’t close Main Street

Whose idea was it to close Main Street in Hillsboro on Friday evenings? The highway is a mess (it is being worked on ... again?), and with the misdirection of the one-way streets at Second Avenue it can be frustrating getting from one end of town to the other.

Please, leave off from these closures until Baseline Road is fully opened.

We are in this together

Independent. The ability to walk one’s own path unassisted.

Looking at a path, I realize, there was someone here before me. Not just one, but many. Those who have not only tread, but stabilized this path for a million footfalls to come.

The shoes on my feet, the bridges built, the clothes I wear, the car I drove to this path; all made by others so I could walk.

We are all in this together. As we look for our path through life, every connection to others make us that much stronger.

Rather than celebrate independence, we should rejoice in our inter-dependence.
