Don’t bring your dogs to the Maple Leaf Festival. If you do, the penalty could be a bite.

Chet doesn’t fear Friday the 13th
July 19, 2007
Friday the 13th doesn’t bother Baldwin City icon Chet McMillen one little bit. This past occurrence of the “black date” was his 90th birthday. “No, it doesn’t bother me,” said McMillen. “I was born on Friday the 13th. My mom said I was born on Friday the 13th and she should know. No, I’m not superstitious. If a black cat goes in front of me, I don’t go around the block. I don’t care. It doesn’t bother me.” And, yes, over those 90 years, there have been numerous birthdays on Friday the 13th. He isn’t sure how many, though. “Quite a few times,” he said. “I wouldn’t know exactly how many, but quite a few.” Of course, McMillen isn’t your typical 90 year old.
