Picture of the Day: Work continues on extending the sidewalk on East Main Street, being done by construction crews hired by Legacy Farms developer Roy MacDowell as part of his agreement with the town. When this stretch is completed, there will be continuous sidewalks from Clinton Street (next to Fairview Estates) into the center of town.
Video of the Day: This video has been making the rounds lately but is from at least a year ago, hence the lack of social distancing. A blind man shoots a basketball and makes a basket, leading to a celebration from his family.
Music Video of the Day: Here’s Train with “Hey, Soul Sister.” Enjoy.
