Question: It’s open forum week. What’s on your mind?

• I’m from out of town, but I want to make a comment about downtown Newton. As I was driving north down Main at night, I noticed how beautifully lit up all the Christmas lights were and the stores were, and it was just beautiful. Newton, you should be appreciative of what a nice downtown you have, including the health food store, the Et Cetera Shop, Katherine’s, Henderson Chiropractic and the jewelry stores. There are so many stores to shop at, and I love that antique mall. I think downtown Newton has wonderful stores to shop at.

• I just read in the TV guide the movie “Seven Pounds” is so great. It is the worst movie I have ever seen. If I had known how it ended, I would not have gone. It’s hard to believe they put this movie out at Christmastime. I am very disappointed. I’ll never watch another Will Smith movie again.

• Thank you to the Southern Kansas 3-Railers Train Club for their great model train display at the 500 building on Main Street. It is great for kids young and old! To see and enjoy, enter the door on the south side of the building Thursday evenings and Saturdays.
