How was your Juneteenth? What's that? You're not familiar with that term? It's not surprising. Many people, especially white people, have been unaware of Juneteenth for well over a century, though among the country's Black population it's a sacred day.

I was surprised and pleased to read that the Riverside Board of Trustees has voted to allow gravel driveways to remain instead of requiring them to be replaced with paving. Their comments, however, are another example of how totally "unwoke" the board, and Riverside in general is, about environmental issues.

It's way too early to start declaring victory — there are some parts of the country where COVID-19 is starting to surge and some leaders (we're looking at you, White House) seem content to decrease the surplus population in exchange for not inconveniencing themselves unduly — but recent data in Illinois and locally indicates that, around these parts, we are doing things the right way.

Remember those happy days and the drive-in movies? Those happy high school days included going to the drive-in on Saturday nights.
Riverside census participation has reached almost 79 percent, surpassing the village's 2010 rate. However, with a goal of 100-percent participation, we still have work to do.

Citizens who support the cause and carry signs need to be aware that Black Lives Matter is more than just a rallying cry to combat injustice and bigotry. Yes, Black lives matter! No reasonable human being can argue against that, even though it would be more appropriately called "Black People Matter" because life has no color.

Throughout the past two weeks of demonstrations and protests that have followed in the wake of the death of George Floyd, his life squeezed out of him by a police officer kneeling on his neck, we've been bombarded by images and video of police brutally assaulting peaceful protesters, bystanders and senior citizens; driving police vehicles into crowds; tear-gassing and firing rubber bullets at the citizens they swore an oath to protect and serve.

My family is writing concerning the content of the June 3 Landmark, starting with the commentary of JoAnne Kosey in the Opinion section. We have seen her commentary in this section of this paper for quite some time now and do not expect much depth or insight from the author.
