It’s a busy time in Baldwin City

Our View Editorial

June 10, 2010

There’s a certain electricity in the air in Baldwin City and it isn’t just the 6 percent electrical rate increase passed by the Baldwin City Council this week or the ongoing debate for the Baldwin School Board on whether to close rural elementary schools or not.

No, it’s the usual wealth of family-oriented events that occur the first few weeks in June every year. This past weekend saw the 154th anniversary of the Battle of Black Jack, the opening of Thomas the Tank Engine and the widely popular city-wide garage sale.

But there’s more on the horizon. This weekend Thomas the Tank will wrap up his annual stay at the Midland Railway and there’s the city-wide cleanup.

The following weekend really heats up with the annual Father’s Day salute of Planes, Trains and Automobiles, the first of the Baldwin Community Arts Council’s Art Walks and the start of the Baldwin City Community Theater’s two weekend performances.

Yes, there’s plenty to do in and around Baldwin City, so take advantage of what’s right here in your own backyard.

And be thankful you don’t have to decide on closing schools or raising electrical rates. The hackles continue to be raised on both those issues.
