Making it official

Making it official – Roy Roberts (seated) cut the ribbon to officially dedicate Beardstown’s new swimming pool as the Sudbrink Waterpark.  Roberts, Beardstown’s first Park District Director, played a key role in the building of the town’s first swimming pool, and was also instrumental in obtaining donations for the new waterpark. Community and business leaders attended the ribbon cutting along with a crowd of 100-200 people who braved the heat to be on hand.


In the last few years, the phrase “fake news” has worked its way into our vocabulary. It is a phrase used to describe information that is accepted as fact by some but disbelieved by others.
