John Manke is an active former Bay View resident who is involved in numerous neighborhood organizations, including the Bay View Historical Society, the Humboldt Park Fourth of July Association and the Shore Shore Farmers Market. He believes Bay View has a fine tradition in its past that we do not want to lose in the future.
Now that Christmas is over, we all should have opened up our gifts. Today is the day that many people flood the stores looking for bargins for next Christmas and for items that they could not afford before the Holiday. There will be lots of people shopping today, so watch out for thieves as you shop and after you return to your vehicle after shopping. Hopefully nothing bad will happen, but just so that you keep in mind what could happen to you. Don't panic in the big crowds and take your time while shopping. Money isn't everything, but your safety is. Have fun when you shop, for next year you will do the same thing all over again.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
