The village of Lakeview and Cato Township are teaming up with the goal of expanding a walking trail around Tamarack Lake.

The Cato Township Board voted 5-0 on Jan. 3 to allow Clerk Todd Lincoln to continue looking into the possibility of using some of the township’s $91,000 in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to expand the trail, which Lincoln said can be done with ARPA funds as outdoor recreation falls under COVID mitigation efforts.

GRACE FOWLER: ‘Project Runway’

My latest binge-worthy Netflix show has been “Project Runway.”

I have watched almost every season and my boyfriend sometimes watches with me — even though it wouldn’t be his first choice of programs. I love this show because there is drama, but nothing too stressful for me and it is mindless to watch. Within each season there are so many different personalities, which always makes for some crazy drama. My favorite episodes are the reunion shows they film after the season is over. It is so interesting to have them reveal issues that you didn’t know about during the original show and it always amazes me how immature grown adults can be sometimes.
