So long, old friends
As a long ago resident of McCook and a citizen who lived on East First St. near Norris Park, I was saddened to learn of the fate of the 44 "elderly" trees. However, I'm pleased to learn that the city considers the park a high priority in that plans include investing in younger trees immediately. Last September I was in McCook for a high school reunion and visited the park. I was very disappointed to see the deteriorating condition of McCook's war veteran memorial. Hopefully, restoration work will be planned for this very moving war memorial too. Gone, but not forgotten.
