Watching the Sept. 5 Riverside Village Board meeting reminded me the old adage about the fate of those who don't study history. It truly was like deja vu all over again.

Fall, according to the calendar, is here. The weather has been delightful, just the way I like it. And, over the weekend there was no better time to enjoy Brookfield.
There's more to learning than sitting in a classroom. Our young people are learning the power of their voices in what is a growing, but certainly not out of control, number of public protests.

When the Brookfield Village Board earlier this year put the brakes on funding Phase I engineering for a plan to construct a bike path that would connect Prairie Avenue to a regional trail network along 31st Street, we were, frankly, disappointed.

Now that the Riverside Village Board has voted to allow a recreational marijuana store in town, they have some work to do. I personally am ambivalent about it, and to a greater extent I feel a bit hypocritical. I want legalized pot, I am not sure it is good for Riverside to allow sales of it.
