    Fourth of July about more than fireworks

    Sunday, July 5 2015 1:16 AM EDT2015-07-05 05:16:12 GMT
    Sure, the Fourth of July fireworks were impressive as expected Saturday night at the Illinois Veterans Home. So were all of the trappings that accompanied the celebration, from the on-stage musical entertainment to the concessions and other attractions. Possibly lost to some, however, were the memories and sacrifices that are a part of many lives on a day such as July 4, especially at a site like the Veterans Home.

    Sam Greving says the latest addition to the Adams County Fairgrounds will make things more bearable for himself and Bear, his horse. Sam and other Horse Crazy 4-H Club members joined fair board members and horse enthusiasts Monday for a ribbon-cutting at a new horse barn, the largest part of a $37,000 expansion project which also renovated the adjacent horse arena at a time when the state is cutting funding to county fairs.
