March Editor’s Notes

-

Since early December, several weeks before the first day of winter, PN has been tracking the highs and lows of the season, especially with photos and posts available to visitors who like PN’s Facebook, a “place” on that social media platform.

Living in the Midwest comes with changing seasons scheduled to last for about three months each, offering different expectations, rewards and pleasures. The frigid temperatures of winter that first arrived here in late November, however, quickly have overstayed their warm welcome— and spring officially doesn’t begin until March 20.

That said, every day of the year, the Naperville Riverwalk welcomes visitors to cross over several covered bridges to enjoy the distinguishing beauty of every season along both sides of the DuPage River. Considering our love for the Riverwalk over the past 21 years, the winter of 2014 comes with many firsts, including the first time in our memory that while nearly three miles of winding brick paths in the linear park are cleared for walkers, some spots along the low-flow walks are still icy, blocked by big chunks of ice. Pay attention to yellow caution tape placed to keep visitors safe.

Primary means another first

A Primary Election will be held on March 18 for all hopefuls challenging incumbents or competing to fill vacant seats. Ten months of campaigning could seem like a long race.

Thanks to everyone who becomes an educated voter to voice your choices before going to the polls for the Primary.

Here’s hoping voters will plan to engage more of your family, friends and neighbors to participate in opportunities to meet and personally greet the candidates from now until the Illinois Gubernatorial Election on Nov. 4.

All qualified and dedicated candidates deserve our attention and consideration with an informed vote for the best future we can put forward. Win or lose, we are hopeful qualified candidates who may came up short this time will continue to find ways to serve until they can run next time. Meanwhile, here’s hoping for a great race with civility to seek solutions for all.

Thanks for getting to know the challengers as well as the incumbents and their records before the Primary.

Early Voting runs March 3-15 at the Naperville Municipal Building. If you’re a traditional voter who waits until Election Day, note that many polling places have changed this year. The PN Election and Voter’s Guide links to all polling places.

Polls will be open from 6AM-7PM Tues., March 18, on Primary Day.
