Twenty-two students from Marengo Academy and Linden High School got together to brainstorm about “Finding the Good Life in Linden” in a May 15 forum led by the David Mathews Center for Civic Life. The forum, sponsored by the Marengo County Economic Development Authority and the Extension Office, focused on how young people can make a difference by investing in their community.

Senior Center Provides More Than Meals

It seems that the older a person gets, the more they cherish their time here on earth. The “millennials” of the current era, of which I am a part, seem to place little value on where they’ve been and what they’ve done. Having lived in seven states myself, the idea of “home” is a foreign concept, but one that I have always longed for and hope to find one day.
